"Why has the robust and compelling body of climate change science not had a greater impact on action, especially in the United States?"--P. 9. "The Yale F&ES Conference 'Climate change: from science to action' brought together 110 eminent leaders and thinkers from across a broad spectrum to consider how to move the U.S. from the science of climate change to more effective action. This document reflects their collective insights, wisdom, and ideas from their two and half days together."--P. 203.
