CLIMATE SCIENCE COMMITMENT
Climate Change is among the most
pressing challenges facing the world
today. Humans are causing climate to
change and it poses serious risks. The
more carbon we emit, the higher the
carbon dioxide concentrations in the
atmosphere will be and the larger the
changes in climate we’ll face.
Each year, AMS, in conjunction with
the National Oceanic and Atmospheric
Administration (NOAA) in the United
States publishes The State of the
Climate, an international, peer-reviewed
publication that is the authoritative
annual summary of the global climate.
The AMS Policy Program, based in
Washington, DC, also provides a number
of resources and programs that ensure
the policy process uses the latest
scientific knowledge and understanding
to make informed policy decisions.
