ABSTRACT
The article reports that United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is meeting the policy-makers and government delegates to negotiate the summation of its report on global warming in Valencia, Spain in November 2007. According to Stephen Schneider, a climatologist at Stanford University in California that the most recent draft has received 2,000 comments from governments criticizing the process as too political. It was emphasized that the report must overcome legitimate divides between working groups by which the first group will base its forecasts on climate models and the second group will look at the possibility that accelerated warming could cause sea levels to rise much faster than expected.
