throughout the world… The VISION
of the UU-UNO Climate Change Initiative is a world with mitigated climate change viable for us and future generations.” The list seems a good point of departure for discussions.
The National Academy of Sciences and the U.S. National Research Council present this well-done video Climate Change – Lines of Evidence.
“Climate Science, like all Science, is a process of collective learning, that relies on the careful gathering and analysis of data, the formulation of hypotheses, and the development of computer models to help understand past and present change. It is the combined use of observations and models that help test scientific understanding in order to help predict future change. Scientific knowledge builds over time as new observations and data become available.”
In reality, we are engaged in a large-scale planet-change experiment, watching what unfolds. “Each year we add to the climate system more than 50 times the amount of power produced annually by ALL the power plants of the world combined.”
