The major conclusion was that research since did "not affect our fundamental understanding of the science of the greenhouse effect and either confirm or do not justify alteration of the major conclusions of the first IPCC scientific assessment".
Material has been subjected to detailed, line by line discussion and agreement. The choice of authors aims for a range of views, expertise and geographical representation, ensuring representation of experts from developing and developed countries and countries with economies in transition.
The balance of evidence suggests a discernible human influence on global climate considerable progress since the report in distinguishing between natural and anthropogenic influences on climate, because of: Contributing authors prepare text, graphs or data for inclusion by the lead authors.
It is split into four parts: The coordinating lead authors are responsible for assembling the contributions of the other authors, ensuring that they meet stylistic and formatting requirements, and reporting to the Working Group chairs.
Review comments are in an open archive for at least five years. It noted that transient time-dependent simulations, which had been very preliminary in the FAR, were now improved, but did not include aerosol or ozone changes. Some of these comments have been supportive,  while others have been critical.
They predict that under a "business as usual" BAU scenario, global mean temperature will increase by about 0. Task Force Reports are accepted by the Panel.

Panel adopts Overview Chapters of Methodology Reports. Not been subject to line by line discussion and agreement, but presents a comprehensive, objective, and balanced view of the subject matter. A chapter typically has two "coordinating lead authors", ten to fifteen "lead authors", and a somewhat larger number of "contributing authors".

They judge that global mean surface air temperature has increased by 0.The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) is a scientific and intergovernmental body under the auspices of the United Nations, set up at the request of member governments, dedicated to the task of providing the world with an objective, scientific view of climate change and its political and economic impacts.
