Scientists from a Nobel-winning panel on climate change have concluded that the planet is warming at an ever faster pace. The group released its stark findings at a conference in Spain.

The United Nations' Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change shared the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize with Al Gore in recognition of work done to document and publicize global warming.

The international community meets next month in Bali, Indonesia, to consider how countries should respond to climate change. The IPCC will take its report to the gathering in hopes of spurring action by the world's governments to curb the production of greenhouse houses.
