A vast majority of climate scientists agree that global warming is happening and that it poses a serious threat to society. They also agree that it is being caused largely by human activities that release greenhouse gases, such as burning fossil fuels in powerplants and cars and deforesting the land.

This scientific consensus emerged gradually over decades of research and debate. The current state of knowledge on climate is summed up in the periodic reports of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which are compiled by thousands of scientists. Unfortunately, much of the American public remains unaware of this overwhelming scientific agreement. Part of the blame for this lies with coordinated efforts within certain industries to spread misinformation about global warming.

This report is intended to provide a comprehensive discussion of common myths and misunderstandings regarding climate change. Our goal is to provide members of Congress and their staff, journalists and the public with detailed, well-researched and user-friendly information on these issues. This will allow readers to see that global warming science is not split between two opposing camps, as the public may often believe. Our rebuttals of myths are based on peer-reviewed, widely accepted scientific publications, which are cited and listed at the end of the report. (From Author)
