NPR's Christopher Joyce reports for our Newscast unit, "The report notes that these changes are consistent with projections of human-caused climate change". "Does Smith know better than the best United States scientists?"
"Evidence for a changing climate abounds", the authors state in the report's executive summary, "from the top of the atmosphere to the depths of the oceans.
