IOS Press congratulates IPCC with Nobel Peace Prize
Date:12/10/2007

Amsterdam, 10 December 2007 The Norwegian Nobel Committee has awarded the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), represented by Dr. Rajendra K. Pachauri, and (former US Vice-President) Al Gore with the Nobel Peace Prize for 2007 for their efforts to build up and disseminate greater knowledge about man-made climate change, and to lay the foundations for the measures that are needed to counteract such change. Today, 10 December, the laureates will receive the Nobel Peace Prize at the Oslo City Hall in Norway.

Dr. Rajendra K. Pachauri, Chairman of the IPCC and Director-General of The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) is also Editor-in-Chief of the journal Recourses, Energy and Development. IOS Press is responsible for the distribution and marketing outside India of this journal and several other TERI publications. We are very proud to work with Dr. Pachauri and hereby extend our warmest congratulations.

Through the scientific reports it has issued over the past two decades, the IPCC has created an ever-broader informed consensus about the connection between human activities and global warming. Thousands of scientists and officials from over one hundred countries have collaborated to achieve greater certainty as to the scale of the warming. Whereas in the 1980s global warming seemed to be merely an interesting hypothesis, the 1990s produced firmer evidence in its support. In the last few years, the connections have become even clearer and the consequences still more apparent.
