ABSTRACT
The article reports that growing scientific evidence is confirming that the world's climate is radically changing and that human activity is contributing to global warming, according to a new report by the Conference Board. The Conference Board report finds a broad scientific consensus emerging that climate change is underway. The Conference Board's participation was facilitated by Environmental Defense, which links science, economics, law and innovative private-sector partnerships to create breakthrough solutions to the most serious environmental problems.
