Global Warming

This is the link to a newly released 20 pages summary of significant findings re global warming. "The new report powerfully underscores the need for a massive effort to slow the pace of global climatic disruption before intolerable consequences become inevitable,” said John P. Holdren, the president of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and an energy and climate expert at Harvard University. “Since 2001 there has been a torrent of new scientific evidence on the magnitude, human origins and growing impacts of the climatic changes that are underway. In overwhelming proportions, this evidence has been in the direction of showing faster change, more danger and greater confidence about the dominant role of fossil fuel burning and tropical deforestation in causing the changes that are being observed.

“This new report should spur policymakers to get off the fence and put strong and effective policies in place to tackle greenhouse gas emissions.” New York Times, Feb. 2, 2007
