Daily US Times: Researchers of the United Nations (UN) are about to publish their strongest statement yet on the science of climate change.

The report will likely detail significant changes to the world’s ice caps, lands and oceans in the coming decades.

The report, due to be published on Monday, has been compiled by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

It will be UN’s first global assessment on the science of global heating since 2013.

It is expected the forthcoming Summary for Policymakers will be a key document for world leaders when they meet in November.

The political leaders from all over the world are due to gather for a climate summit, known as COP26, in Glasgow.

After two weeks of virtual negotiations between scientists and representatives of nearly two hundred governments, the IPCC will launch the first part of a three-pronged assessment of the impacts, causes and solutions to climate change.

It is the presence of these government officials that makes the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) different from other science bodies.

After the report has been approved in agreement with governments, they effectively take ownership of it.

A 40-page Summary report for Policymakers will be released on Monday dealing with the physical science.

The report may be brief, but the new report about climate change is expected to pack a punch.

There have been significant improvements in the science in the last few years, according to many observers.
