The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change issued its report at a conference in Paris, Feb. 2, 2007.

Scientists and government officials from 113 countries issue a new report on climate change that blames humans for rising global temperatures. The report predicts changes in temperature, precipitation patterns and sea level over the next 100 years.

Susan Solomon, a top U.S. government climate scientist and co-chair of the meeting in Paris, speaks with Steve Inskeep about the report.
