ABSTRACT
The article presents highlights of the fifth assessment report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change published on April 13, 2014. Topics discussed include recommendations on cutting the annual global gross domestic product (GDP) growth by 0.06 percent and cost of action to cut emissions for global GDP by 2100 based on assumptions such as immediate actions of governments to limit emissions, a global carbon price in place and availability of carbon capture and storage technology.
