ABSTRACT
Environmentalists in the U.S. are criticizing a government report on global warming for concluding that more study is necessary, while a conservative public policy group says the panel that released the report didn't go far enough. The Climate Change Science Program, which includes representatives of 13 federal departments and agencies, released its 364-page strategic plan on July 24, 2003. The plan also expressed commitment to ensuring continued economic growth. Katherine Silverthorne, director of the World Wildlife Fund's Climate Change Program said that while it is important to continue building the knowledge of climate science, existing scientific literature justifies immediate action to reduce emissions of heat-trapping gases. Environmentalists have been highly critical of the U.S. administration's global climate change policies.
