JOINT STATEMENT ON CLIMATE

Key points in a joint statement on global warming issued last week by 11 leading international science bodies, including the U.S. National Academy of Sciences:

Significant global warming is occurring.

It has caused increases in sea levels, retreats of glaciers and changes in many biological systems.

Most warming in recent decades can likely be attributed to human activities, largely from developed countries.

Action taken now to reduce the build-up of greenhouse gases will lessen the magnitude and rate of climate change.

Failure to implement reductions now will make the job more difficult in the future.
