Climate change is considered by most of the scientific community to be an exisiting condition that threatens the economic and health environment of the entire planet.
"Climate Change is already happening. More heat waves, greater sea level rise, and
other changes with consequences for human health, natural ecosystems, and agriculture are
already occurring in the United States and worldwide. These problems are very likely to
become worse over the next 10-20 years and beyond."
