Climate Report from our National Academy of Sciences

William L. Chameides, Ph.D., Dean of the Nichlas School of the Environment, Duke University, testified yesterday, April 25, 2013, before the Committee on Science, Space and Technology of the United States House of Representatives in a Hearing on Policy-Relevant Climate Issues.  Dr. Chameides’ himself has had a long and illustrious career in the field of atmosphere science and because of the clarity and credibility of his testimony, I recommend that everyone read it from beginning to end.

His testimony is essentially a summary of a report entitled America’s Climate Choices that was recently issued  by the National Research Council of the National Academy of Sciences at the request of Congress. That report brought together more than 90 experts from around the USA to think collaboratively about the causes and consequences of climate change and the choices for responding.  The National Academy of Science was created in 1864 by President Lincoln in order to provide advice to Congress on scientifically-related subjects of great national importance.
