From a commentary written by Roger Pielke Jr., Gwyn Prins, Steve Rayner and Daniel Sarewitz for the February 7, 2007 edition of Nature "Climate change 2007: Lifting the taboo on adaptation" (pdf)

Adaptation is again seen as an essential part of climate policy alongside greenhouse-gas mitigation. Both the recent Stern Review on the Economics of Climate Change2 and the efforts of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change3 demonstrate that adaptation is firmly back on the agenda.
