Description The state of Washington is working hard to address the impacts of climate change on its natural resources, communities and economies. The scientific community, participating in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), has reached a strong consensus regarding the science of global climate change: The Earth’s temperature is rising, and that rise is caused by carbon dioxide emissions and other greenhouse gases from human activities. The answers to these frequently asked questions can help state officials and citizens understand why it is important to act now.
