More scientific consensus

Golly, they agree with Al Gore!

The board of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, the nation's leading general science organization, yesterday issued a consensus statement declaring global climate change "a growing threat to society."
The board's statement attributes Earth's recent warming to human activity, noting: "The atmospheric concentration of carbon dioxide, a critical greenhouse gas, is higher than it has been for at least 650,000 years. The average temperature of the Earth is heading for levels not experienced for millions of years."
The board called for "rapidly reducing greenhouse gas emissions," warning: "Delaying action to address climate change will increase the environmental and societal consequences as well as the costs."

Perhaps they were all brainwashed by watching An Inconvenient Truth.
