Thomas Stocker, the Co-Chair of Working Group I said: "Continued emissions of greenhouse gases will cause further warming and changes in all components of the climate system.

Thomas Stocker, the other Co-Chair of Working Group I said: "Continued emissions of greenhouse gases will cause further warming and changes in all components of the climate system. Limiting climate change will require substantial and sustained reductions of greenhouse gas emissions."
"Global surface temperature change for the end of the 21st century is projected to be likely to exceed 1.5°C relative to 1850 to 1900 in all but the lowest scenario considered, and likely to exceed 2°C for the two high scenarios," said Co-Chair Thomas Stocker. "Heat waves are very likely to occur more frequently and last longer. As the Earth warms, we expect to see currently wet regions receiving more rainfall, and dry regions receiving less, although there will be exceptions," he added.

Professor Thomas Stocker (Speaker) Stocker Thomas Stocker is Professor of Climate and Environmental Physics at the University of Bern and head of the Division of Climate and Environmental Physics (staff of 50) of the Physics Institute since 1993. He obtained his PhD with distinction from ETH Zürich in 1987. After reserach positions at the University College (London), and McGill University (Montreal), he was appointed Associate Research Scientist at the Lamont Doherty Earth Observatory of Columbia University (New York) from 1991-1993.
Stocker's main research interest is the development of climate models and the investigation of past and future climate change combining models and paleoclimatic reconstructions using ice cores from Greenland and Antarctica. He developed the first climate models of intermediate complexity and investigates the role of the carbon cycle in the climate system, in particular, the impact of abrupt climate changes on the biogeochemical cycles.
Thomas Stocker has published over 110 papers in international refereed journals. He is a member of the Board of Reviewing Editors of Science. Stocker served as a Coordinating Lead Author and contributor for the Third Assessment Report of the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) published in 2001, and coordinates the Chapter "Global Climate Projection" in the forthcoming Fourth Assessment Report of IPCC. Stocker was awarded the National Latsis Prize of the Swiss National Science Foundation in 1993 and a honorary doctorate of the University of Versailles (France) in 2006. He is also Member of the Academia Europaea, and a Corresponding Member of the Academy of Science and Literature, Mainz.
Use extreme weather events to prepare for global warming says IPCC - Co2balance News, 3 April 2012 [cached]
Teasing out trends in extreme weather and identifying global warming's fingerprint are challenging, acknowledges Thomas Stocker, an atmospheric scientist at the University of Bern in Switzerland and co-chair of the IPCC working group that reviews the state of climate science. By definition, extreme weather events are relatively rare and require observations - of consistent, high quality - over long periods of time and with "extremely good spatial coverage," he says.

As Thomas Stocker of the University of Bern, the co-chair of the scientists behind the report, put it at the press launch: "Human influence on the climate is clear," and "climate change is the greatest challenge of our time.
Yet Stocker also talked about scientific interest in what lay behind what he termed the "hiatus" in warming.
"We looked at this very carefully," said Stocker. There was, he noted, "not a lot of published literature" on the phenomenon.
