NOAA Climate Change Report

Recommended by group member Gus F.

The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) was the lead for 13 federal agencies who jointly released an extensive, 477-page assessment of the scientific evidence for climate change and its physical impacts. This is the fourth in a series of reviews that was mandated by the president and Congress in 1990 to assess human-induced and natural processes of global change. This report concludes that “it is extremely likely [95 to 100% likelihood] that human influence has been the dominant cause of the observed warming since the mid-20th century. For the warming over the last century, there is no convincing alternative explanation supported by the extent of the observational evidence.”

Given the current administration’s reluctance to accept the reality of human-induced climate change, it is imperative that this material be distributed as widely as possible to prevent it being erased from public awareness.
