In an editorial, “Taking Action on Global Warming”, Dr. Milton Clark is urging scientists to speak up on global warming concerns. Global warming has now become the ethical and moral environmental issue of our times. Not only is global warming already occurring, it is proceding at a rapid rate. Aggressive actions need to commence now, and must be well underway within the next decade, in order to reverse the rapid buidup of greenhouse gases. The National Academies of Sciences from the G-8, China, India and Brazil stated that the science of global warming was“sufficiently clear to justify nations taking prompt action”. As a society we must engage in a comprehensive science and engineering approach similiar to that which John F. Kennedy proposed to reach the moon.
