Scientific Alliance Position

We believe that there are many unanswered questions about the main drivers of the world's climate and how to deal with changes to it. We also believe that there are good reasons to promote energy efficiency and to diversify away from our current reliance on coal, oil and gas. Beyond that, we see no easy answers. Open-minded debate of the evidence and policy options is needed, together with encouragement of innovative technical solutions to meet our future energy needs.
