ABSTRACT
Reports on an analysis of the costs of the stabilization of greenhouse gas emissions by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Findings which indicate that the costs of the mitigation of carbon dioxide emissions are much lower than previously thought; Thought that the economic benefits of climate protections will exceed the benefits of climate-friendly technologies; Criticism of the report by several environmental groups.
