Thousands of people are expected to attend this weekend's People's Climate Movement march. It's a good moment to reflect on the facts—what we know about climate change today, and what impacts we can expect in the future.
Science has never been quite so threatened in the United States. That's why this weekend's March for Science—and the actions that follow—are so important.
The upcoming March for Science is an opportunity to push for evidence-based solutions. But real change comes not from placard-waving, but from the tireless, low-profile actions we each take every day at work, in town hall meetings and in our homes.

The climate denier engine is revving up again. Last weekend, an article in the Mail on Sunday attempted to cast doubt on the strength of climate science, and it has been taken up by the U.S. House Science Committee, which has been prone to promoting more climate denial than sound science. The news article doesn't just misinform; it is not grounded in facts.

Global average temperatures have now exceeded the 20th-century average every month for the past 32 years!
