The American Chemical Society, the world’s largest scientific organization, has renewed its policy statement on climate change for 2016-2019. Highlights include:
- – A strong, clear message: “The American Chemical Society (ACS) acknowledges that climate change is real, is serious and has been influenced by anthropogenic activity.”
- – Recommendations for how U.S. Government may take leadership in efforts to combat climate change
- – Links to valuable resources from, for example, the National Academies, the US Global Climate Change Resource Program, and the IPCC
