On 5 November, 1965, the group now known as the President’s Council of Advisors on Science and Technology (PCAST) cautioned President Lyndon B. Johnson that continued accumulation of atmospheric carbon dioxide resulting from fossil-fuel burning would “almost certainly cause significant changes” and “could be deleterious from the point of view of human beings.” The reality of human-induced climate change has now been soundly confirmed, yet public skepticism persists, and policy responses remain elusive.

On October 29, 2015, a daylong symposium will review what scientific research has revealed about climate change over the past 50 years, and offer a forward-looking assessment of the range of scientific, technological, communication, and policy options for the future.
