American Meteorological Society releases revised climate change statement
Date:8/27/2012

The American Meteorological Society (AMS) today released an updated Statement on Climate Change, replacing the 2007 version that was in effect. The informational statement is intended to provide a trustworthy, objective, and scientifically up-to-date explanation of scientific issues of concern to the public. The statement provides a brief overview of how and why global climate has changed in recent decades and will continue to change in the future. It is based on the peer-reviewed scientific literature and is consistent with the majority of current scientific understanding as expressed in assessments and reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, and the U.S. Global Change Research Program.

"This statement is the result of hundreds of hours of work by many AMS members over the past year," comments AMS Executive Director Keith Seitter. "It was a careful and thorough process with many stages of review, and one that included the opportunity for input from any AMS member before the draft was finalized." The AMS releases statements on a variety of scientific issues in the atmospheric and related sciences as a service to the public, policy makers, and the scientific community.
