In 2005 the UK Government hosted the Avoiding Dangerous Climate Change Conference to take an in-depth look at the scientific issues associated with climate change. This volume is a result of this conference and presents the most recent findings from the leading international scientists that attended the conference, addressing topics such as critical thresholds and key vulnerabilities of the climate system, impacts on human and natural systems and technological options for meeting different stabilisation levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.
