Speakers at AAAS Co-Sponsored Panel Urge National Commitment on Climate Change

Americans must begin to mitigate the effects of climate change, not simply adapt to them, "because there are no emergency rooms for planets and our planet is getting sicker by the day," U.S. Rep. Edward J. Markey said at panel discussion at AAAS. The nation must take preventative care right now, Markey said, because adaptation later will be prohibitively expensive, especially in the poorest parts of the world.
