Scientists Sound Alarm Over Climate Change
The American Association for the Advancement of Science published a report “that warned of extreme harm to the world’s climate if people don’t act immediately to slow climate change,” The Hill reports.
The report centers around three conclusions: scientists agree that climate change is happening; the world is “at risk of pushing our climate system toward abrupt, unpredictable, and potentially irreversible changes with highly damaging impacts;” and people can act soon to lower the risks.
“Three scientists at major universities led the AAAS panel that generated the report. Those researchers, along with 10 others in climate related fields, will lead an initiative that ‘encourages Americans to think of climate change as a risk management issue.'”
