Fact of Warming

Changes in climate over 10s of thousands of years are normal cycles. Increased temperatures in the past century have far exceeded the earth's cycles.

The Pontifical Academy of Sciences released its 2011 report stating that global warming is fact and that humans need both to consider how they are contributing to green house gas emissions and how they need to prepare for the future.

This Salt and Light blogpost includes a 4-minute video report about the report released this month.

Access here the academy's statement.
