      Not sure I see the point or perspective of these numbers, but all the IPCC reports together probably add up to several million words. Everything written in the climate debate is several billion words at least (including these words). The debate is a large historical event. Note too that despite the small numbers listed below, these documents mostly involve large wars, with many words.
