The report is expected to underscore yet again that climate change is a serious problem and human beings are largely responsible.<p>The <a href="http://www.ipcc.ch/">Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change</a> (IPCC) represents a consensus view of hundreds of scientists from around the world. The effort shared the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize with Al Gore.<p>In some ways <a href="http://www.cgd.ucar.edu/staff/trenbert/">Kevin Trenberth</a> personifies that consensus.
