According to Buie, "This report promises to be an important turning point in the process of building national awareness of where we stand with climate change, following on the recent release of of the IPCC report. This assessment will have implications for all of us, and for our work as educators. Hopefully it will inspire more focused efforts on the part of the Obama administration to address this urgent situation."
