For any readers who are still skeptical of climate change, or suspicious of climate information from environmental groups, we encourage them to refer to information from other reputable sources. A good example is The American Chemical Society Climate Science Toolkit. The ACS is the largest scientific society (based on membership) in the world. Established in 1876, the society’s membership covers all areas of chemistry such as organic, industrial, petrochemical, and agricultural.
