ABSTRACT
The article discusses the highlights of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC) 2014 assessment on climate change mitigation measures. Some of the key findings include the increase in the concentration of greenhouse gasses (GHG) which cause climate change and economic and population growth as drivers of increases in carbon dioxide emissions from fossil fuel combustion.
