NRC Report: Climate Change is Real, Driven by Human Activity


Apparently the enviros, for all their nature knowledge, don't know that Polar Bears can swim!! Who knew?

File this one under “Shameless ‘Scientific’ Political Pandering”…

The National Research Council, an arm of the National Academy of Sciences, released three reports on Wednesday declaring that climate change is real and is driven mostly by human activity, chiefly the burning of fossil fuels and deforestation.

One of the reports, “Limiting the Magnitude of Future Climate Change,” urges the United States to set a greenhouse gas emissions “budget” that restricts overall emissions and provides a measurable goal for policymakers and for industry. The report does not explicitly recommend a cap-and-trade program, but says a system of tradeable emissions permits gives industry more flexibility in meeting an emissions target or budget.
