Shelley B. from Sandpoint states in her letter to the editor that “it always seems interesting to me that there is so much argument not only on that subject but many others among scientists.” The subject she is referring to is from an article “The Threat of a Warmer Tomorrow” which talks about human caused climate change.
Multiple studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals show that 97 percent or more of actively publishing climate scientists agree: Climate-warming trends over the past century are very likely due to human activities. In addition, most of the leading scientific organizations worldwide have issued public statements endorsing this position.
Please go to climate.nasa.gov to access a partial list of these organizations, along with links to their published statements and a selection of related resources. Climate scientists are overwhelmingly in agreement that human caused climate change is here and needs to be addressed now.
