Climate Change

Consensus On Climate Change

Temperature data from four international science institutions. All show rapid warming in the past few decades and that the last decade has been the warmest on record. Data sources: NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies, NOAA National Climatic Data Center, Met Office Hadley Centre/Climatic Research Unit and the Japanese Meteorological Agency.

Our Statement on Climate Change

On June 22, 1633 Galileo was convicted of heresy for holding the belief that the Earth revolves around the Sun. He was sentenced to formal imprisonment at the pleasure of the Inquisition. On the following day this was commuted to house arrest, which he remained under for the rest of his life. It took more than 300 years for the Church to admit that Galileo was right and to clear his name of heresy.

Man-made climate change is real because over 97% of educated, professional, researchers and scientists have the evidence to prove it. The denial of science is part of the human condition that like climate change, may also have profound effects on our planet.

As Neil de Grasse Tyson, a respected American astrophysicist said “The good thing about science is that it’s true whether or not you believe in it.”

Good luck to us all.

From NASA

“Multiple studies published in peer-reviewed scientific journals show that 97 percent or more of actively publishing climate scientists agree: Climate-warming trends over the past century are extremely likely due to human activities. In addition, most of the leading scientific organizations worldwide have issued public statements endorsing this position. The following is a partial list of these organizations, along with links to their published statements and a selection of related resources.” – NASA Last Updated: January 19, 2017

From The WICCI

“Wisconsin’s climate is changing. In the past century, most of the state has warmed about two degrees (F). Heavy rainstorms are becoming more frequent, and ice cover on the Great Lakes is forming later or melting sooner. In the coming decades, the state will have more extremely hot days, which may harm public health in urban areas and corn harvests in rural areas.”  US EPA, August 2016 – Read The Full Statement
