Tyndall Centre

Brings together scientists, economists, engineers and social scientists, who together are working to develop sustainable responses to climate change through trans-disciplinary research and dialogue on both a national and international level – not just within the research community, but also with business leaders, policy advisors, the media and the public in general.

Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC)

The IPCC was established to provide the decision-makers and others interested in climate change with an objective source of information about climate change. The IPCC does not conduct any research nor does it monitor climate related data or parameters. Its role is to assess on a comprehensive, objective, open and transparent basis the latest scientific, technical and socio-economic literature produced worldwide relevant to the understanding of the risk of human-induced climate change, its observed and projected impacts and options for adaptation and mitigation.

Scotland Against New Coal

The single greatest threat to the climate comes from burning coal. Coal-fired power is the most environmentally damaging means of generating electricity and is historically responsible for most of the CO2 in the air today – about half of all global carbon dioxide emissions. In carbon terms coal is the dirtiest fuel known to man.
