Slide 2

Climate Change Science Program Vision : A country and the worldwide group engaged with the science-based information to deal with the dangers and chances of progress in the atmosphere and related ecological frameworks. Mission : Facilitate the creation and use of information of the Earth’s worldwide environment through exploration, perceptions, choice backing, and correspondence. Obligation : Coordination and incorporation of experimental examination on worldwide variability and change supported by 13 taking an interest offices and offices of the U.S. Government.

State of the Science “ Warming of the atmosphere framework is unequivocal, as is presently apparent from perceptions of expansions in worldwide normal air and sea temperatures, broad softening of snow and ice, and rising worldwide normal ocean level.” IPCC WG1, 2007 “Most of the watched increment in worldwide normal temperatures since the mid-twentieth century is likely because of the watched increment in anthropogenic nursery gas concentrations.” IPCC WG1, 2007

Slide 4

State of the Science “At the worldwide scale the anthropogenic segment of warming in the course of the most recent three decades has had a detectable impact on numerous physical and organic systems.” IPCC WG2, 2007

Slide 10

Energy Mix Scenarios “A arrangement of adjustment and moderation measures can further lessen the dangers connected with atmosphere change.” IPCC WG2, 2007 “…there is considerable monetary potential for the relief of worldwide GHG outflows over the coming decades, that could counterbalance the anticipated development of worldwide emanations or decrease discharges underneath ebb and flow levels.” IPCC WG3, 2007 U.S. Fuel Portfolio for Stabilization at 550ppm (from CCSP S&A Product 2.1b)
