If you are new to the issue of climate change, the extent of resources on this page (and associated climate pages) can be overwhelming. Don't worry: it's overwhelming to those who have been in this field for their entire careers. But "where to start?" is a very reasonable question. Fortunately, there's a very reasonable answer: the "Summary for Policymakers" of the latest report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). About 30 pages long, this report represents the core commonly held understanding and assessment of climate change proferred by the scientific community.
