The International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), Bangkok, has released the report Mitigation of Climate Change. The Report, an output of the ninth session of the Working Group III meeting in Bangkok, urges a timely response to global warming but stresses that such measures need not be expensive. Two scenarios for reduction of greenhouse emissions are offered, one with greater impact to nations' Gross National Product (GNP). The IPCC will release a fourth report in Valencia Spain in November 2007. The IPCC, composed of more than 2,000 specialists from more than 130 nations, was established in 1988 by the United Nations to guide government responses to climate change.
