Time for Action May 24, 2010 : 11:33 AM

The National Research Council declares that it's time for action to solve the climate crisis:

“In its most comprehensive study so far, the nation’s leading scientific body declared on Wednesday that climate change is a reality and is driven mostly by human activity, chiefly the burning of fossil fuels and deforestation.”

“The group, the National Research Council, an arm of the National Academy of Sciences, issued three reports describing the case for a harmful human influence on the global climate as overwhelming and arguing for strong immediate action to limit emissions of climate-altering gases in the United States and around the world — including the creation of a carbon pricing system.”

The Senate should heed their advice and move quickly to pass the American Power Act immediately.
