Scientists Say Climate Change Could Produce ‘Irreversible’ Effects

“With its new report on climate change, the largest science society in the world is intent on reaching the largest possible amount of people,” EcoWatch reports.  

“That’s likely why the American Association for the Advancement of Science’s (AAAS) What We Know gets straight to the point without the confusing data and over-analytical language some reports offer. Instead, the report presents plenty of no-nonsense language on human-caused climate change, which 97 percent of climate scientists agree on.”  

“While they find it ‘disturbing’ that scientists can’t agree on just how much warming it will take to trigger drastic changes, the scientists say they could come in the next 10 to 20 years. They label those changes ‘abrupt, unpredictable and potentially irreversible.'”
