Planet Peril - Validate and verify
Staff quoted: Don Boesch
Article Link Permanent Link

Last week, presidents of the 18 prominent American scientific societies wrote Senators a letter making it clear climate change is occurring and that greenhouse gases emitted by human activities are the primary cause. They noted the strong evidence that ongoing climate change will have broad and severe impacts on society, the global economy and the environment that can only be avoided by dramatically reducing emissions of these gases.

Planet Peril - Doubts About Us, Not Warming
Staff quoted: Don Boesch
Article Link Permanent Link

Scientific understanding of the biophysical process and consequences of global climate change will surely evolve as further discoveries are made and hypotheses are challenged. However, even a Skeptical Scientist would have to conclude without doubt that -- based on evidence, not just theory -- humans are raising the levels of CO2 in the atmosphere, CO2 traps heat, and the planet is accumulating heat.

Staff quoted: Don Boesch
Article Link Permanent Link

Yesterday, President Obama, while acknowledging that he did not feel that he deserved to be in the company of so many of the transformative figures, said that he would accept the Nobel Peace Prize on behalf of the American people. His aides indicated that he will travel to Oslo to receive the award on December 10. If he goes to Oslo, then he must attend the United Nations Climate Change Conference underway that very week in Copenhagen, just 300 air miles away, and demonstrate that American leadership is back by offering significant and tangible commitments.

Planet Panel - Too Big To Fail
Staff quoted: Don Boesch
Article Link Permanent Link

Following the 12 years since Kyoto, the climate change crisis ever more clearly presents a challenge that is too big to fail to meet. Nearly one-quarter of the increase in the atmospheric carbon dioxide levels since industrialization occurred after 1997, as greenhouse gas emissions continued to grow in almost all countries. We no longer have time for false starts or half-measures because, if we are to avoid dangerous warming of the planet, global emissions will have to peak within the next 12 years and the emissions of the U.S. and other developed nations even sooner.
