New Climate Report Offers Summary of Climate Science SWCAA News

Sunday, April 27, 2014 - A group of U.S. and United Kingdom scientists has released a new non-technical report presenting the latest climate research for policy makers, educators and the interested public.

The report is intended to serve as a generally accessible guide to the more technical and specialized scientific research underlying the climate change debate. Summaries of well-settled climate issues are included alongside areas that are more uncertain. For example, the authors point to the strong scientific consensus that human-caused climate change is occurring, but note that the correlation between climate change and extreme weather as well as the likely extent of future sea-level rise are both less well understood at this time.

The report, entitled Climate Change: Evidence and Causes, was authored jointly by the U.S. National Academy of Sciences and the U.K. Royal Society can be read by clicking here.
