ABSTRACT
The article looks at global warming. According to the author, even if the world adopted the most far-reaching plans to combat climate change, most scientists agree that the concentration of greenhouse gases will continue to rise for the next few decades. The author states that in addition to our efforts to prevent and mitigate climate change, we need to employ the strategy of adaptation. The article discusses the Pew Foundation's report "Coping With Global Climate Change."
