Looking Ahead: Third Time Out
27 December 1999 5:00 pm
The Kyoto Treaty to stem global warming is frozen in political limbo in the United States, where the current Congress is likely to reject the pact--but that won't stop international teams from stepping up work on climate change science and policy. A September deadline looms for what one researcher calls "the climate Bible"--the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's (IPCC's) draft Third Assessment Report, a once-every-5-years bid to sum up the state of the world's climate knowledge. But donor nations may have to cough up some cash to keep the assessment on track: The IPCC faces a "dire financial situation" because many nations have stiffed the body, chair Robert Watson warned last November. The "lack of financial commitment is rather disturbing, given the incredible effort of the experts who give so freely of their time," he says.
