ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the findings of a study issued on May 2, 2006 by the U.S. Climate Change Science Program. The study found that there was a general consensus among scientists on the issue of global warming. The study resolves a longstanding scientific dispute regarding global average temperature increases at the earth's surface as compared with global average temperature increases at higher levels in the atmosphere. Scientists agreed that the ground and the sky are heating up together.
