ICSC CHIEF SCIENCE ADVISOR: ADAPTATION TO CLIMATE CHANGE KEY

May 24, 2012: "Deal with climate reality as it unfolds", by ICSC Chief Science Advisor and paleoclimatologist Professor Robert M. (Bob) Carter, PhD, of the Marine Geophysical Laboratory at James Cook University in Australia.

"Nonetheless, a key issue on which all scientists agree is that natural climate-related events and change are real, and exact very real human and environmental costs. These hazards include storms, floods, blizzards, droughts and bushfires, as well as both local and global temperature steps and longer term cooling or warming trends."
