Report by the National Academy of Sciences on Federal activity related to Climate Change http://www.climatescience.gov/ is excerpted:

The Climate Change Science Program "CCSP, an important initiative that has broadened our knowledge of climate change, needs to package more of that knowledge for policymakers from the national to local level, and place more emphasis on understanding how people will be affected by climate change and how they might react,'' said committee chairman Veerabhadran Ramanathan, professor of atmospheric and climate sciences at the Scripps Institution of Oceanography, University of California, San Diego." ,,,

"Better communication from CCSP also will be critical for confronting climate change at the local level.  CCSP should build upon the two-way dialogue envisioned in its strategic plan by engaging state and local officials, nongovernmental organizations, industry, and the climate change technology community.  This dialogue should go beyond communicating research results to asking what is needed from the program."
