The Stern Review. From treasury.gov.uk

The Review finds that all countries will be affected by climate change, but it is the poorest countries that will suffer earliest and most. Unabated climate change risks raising average temperatures by over 5°C from pre-industrial levels. Such changes would transform the physical geography of our planet, as well as the human geography – how and where we live our lives.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has been established by WMO and UNEP to assess scientific, technical and socio- economic information relevant for the understanding of climate change, its potential impacts and options for adaptation and mitigation. It is open to all Members of the UN and of WMO.

IPCC 5th Assessment Report - 2013

Warming of the climate system is unequivocal, and since the 1950s, many of the observed
changes are unprecedented over decades to millennia. The atmosphere and ocean have
warmed, the amounts of snow and ice have diminished, sea level has risen, and the
concentrations of greenhouse gases have increased.

Union of Concerned Scientists - Global warming is one of the most serious challenges facing us today. To protect the health and economic well-being of current and future generations, we must reduce our emissions of heat-trapping gases by using the technology, know-how, and practical solutions already at our disposal.

http://www.nrdc.org/globalWarming/default.asp

National Resources Defence Council - Higher temperatures threaten dangerous consequences: drought, disease, floods, lost ecosystems. And from sweltering heat to rising seas, global warming's effects have already begun. But solutions are in sight. We know where most heat-trapping gases come from: power plants and vehicles. And we know how to curb their emissions: modern technologies and stronger laws. NRDC is working to put these fixes in place. By shifting the perception of global warming from abstract threat to pressing reality, and promoting online activism. By pressing businesses to use less energy and build more efficient products. And by fighting for laws that will speed these advances.

An Inconvenient Truth

A documentary film on Global Warming, featuring Al Gore - Humanity is sitting on a ticking time bomb. If the vast majority of the world's scientists are right, we have just ten years to avert a major catastrophe that could send our entire planet into a tail-spin of epic destruction involving extreme weather, floods, droughts, epidemics and killer heat waves beyond anything we have ever experienced.

The Sierra Club

After years of debate, a near consensus among the world's scientists has concluded that we are warming the planet, and unless we take steps now to curb global warming, our way of life, our planet, and our children are all in grave danger.

But there is hope. Each us can make simple decisions that will reduce global warming pollution. The Sierra Club's network of activists and volunteers are dedicated to curbing global warming. We are working with churches, labor unions, mayors and state governments to bring about a cleaner, smarter energy future.

Roscoe Brown Inc:

Heating up the Earth with Global Warming & How to Stop It! The rise in the average temperatures of the Earth's oceans and atmosphere is popularly referred to as global warming. Because global warming can also cause long-term changes in the earth's climate, scientists also refer to it as "climate change." The fact that global warming is occurring has been firmly established by science. The controversy concerning global warming, however, centers around whether humans are responsible for the ongoing increase in average global temperatures. The vast majority of scientists who study the world's climate agree that humans are at least partly responsible for the current trends in global climate change. .
