In 2007, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) issued its Fourth Assessment Report ( 4AR), which made the most definitive statement on the anthropogenic causes of observed global climate change, stating that human interference with the global climate system was 'unequivocal.' In the words of Achim Steiner (Head of United Nations Environment Programme), 'this year may be remembered as the day the question mark was removed from whether human activity has anything to do with climate change' (Giles 2007: 579). The environmental and economic risks associated with climate change in the 21•t century featured prominently in international policy debates that culminated at the 13th Conference of the Parties( COP) in Bali, Indonesia. While the 'Bali Road Map' did not produce new greenhouse gas emission targets to succeed the Kyoto Protocol, many are now convinced that the climate change science has progressed sufficiently that it will engender a serious response from global policymakers.
