Climate Change Choices for the U.S.
Q: How useful do you think these reports will be in addressing climate change at global scales of spatial resolution?
The National Research Council, on Wednesday, May 19, 2010, released three reports within its America's Climate Choices suite of studies. The reports were requested by the U.S. Congress—to inform responses to climate change.
Advancing the Science of Climate Change
Advancing the Science of Climate Change focuses on the scientific evidence regarding human-induced climate change and future research needs.
Limiting the Magnitude of Future Climate Change
Limiting the Magnitude of Future Climate Change assesses options for limiting greenhouse gas emissions and taking other actions to reduce the magnitude of climate change.
Adapting to the Impacts of Climate Change
Adapting to the Impacts of Climate Change focuses on options to improve the nation's capacity to adapt to climate change impacts.

A initial brief review of these reports seems to indicate that contain a substantial amount of very important information that needs to be distributed to as large a reader base as possible as fast as possible. I would suggest that the current attempts to sell this information even at the very low cost of its current offering will severely limit its distribution and potential positive impact towards problem resolution. These 3 very important reports should be offered free on line to any interested party with public service media coverage to promote a national readership at all levels of our society.
