On the 50th anniversary of the first official report to a U.S. President on the dangers of climate change, presidential science advisor John Holdren delivered the keynote address for the symposium on Climate Science: 50 Years Later.
In the address Holdren presented an illustrative chronology of climate science and the reporting on it to policy-makers, the key scientific understandings that underpin President Obama’s Climate Action Plan, and a look ahead to what recent and emerging science means for public perceptions and policy decisions –making clear the scientific basis for climate policy in the past, present, and future.
