ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, which emphasizes the need to cut greenhouse gas emissions. The report was welcomed by the European Commission, saying it confirms its analysis that emissions must start to fall and then be cut around half of the 1990 levels by 2050. The report, titled "Mitigation of Climate Change," focuses on research into the scientific, technological, environmental, economic and social aspects of reducing climate change.
