Climate Change Letter to Congress from 31 Major Scientific Societies
This week's post consists of a copy of a letter sent to the United States Congress earlier this summer from 31 of our preeminent scientific organizations. The letter represents the majority opinion of the thousands of members of the entities listed as signatories.
The scientific community overwhelmingly agrees that unprecedented rapid climate change is happening and that human activity is the principal cause. This community of scholars also includes the several thousand scientists contributing to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) assessment reports and the Millennium Ecosystem Assessment.
There has never been a challenge confronting humanity that has such widespread global scientific support.
