Joint science academies’ statement: Global response to climate change Climate change is real There will always be uncertainty in understanding a system as complex as the world’s climate. However there is now strong evidence that significant global warming is occurring1. The evidence comes from direct measurements of rising surface air temperatures and subsurface ocean temperatures and from phenomena such as increases in average global sea levels, retreating glaciers, and changes to many physical and biological systems. It is likely that most of the warming in recent decades can be attributed to human activities (IPCC 2001)2. This warming has already led to changes in the Earth's climate. The existence of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is vital to life on Earth – in their absence average temperatures would be about 30 centigrade degrees lower than they are today. But human activities are now causing atmospheric concentrations of greenhouse gases – including carbon dioxide, methane, tropospheric ozone, and nitrous oxide – to rise well above pre-industrial levels. Carbon dioxide levels have increased from 280 ppm in 1750 to over 375 ppm today – higher than any previous levels that can be reliably measured (i.e. in the last 420,000 years). Increasing greenhouse gases are causing temperatures to rise; the Earth’s surface warmed by approximately 0.6 centigrade degrees over the twentieth century. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) projected that the average global surface temperatures will continue to increase to between 1.4 centigrade degrees and 5.8 centigrade degrees above 1990 levels, by 2100.

The Foundation Center have focused on the ultimate uses and beneficiaries of the donations raised by the relief funds from all sources, and we have issued a comprehensive report on their funding activities and practices.1 While the scope of our 9/11-related efforts has expanded, we have continued to track the foundation and corporate response. Specifically, in the latest year we have added hundreds of new donors to our 9/11 database and thousands of individual gifts. This report provides an overview of 9/11 giving by institutional donors based on data compiled through September 2003, updating and expanding on the findings presented in our November 2002 report.2 The latest information was drawn primarily from 2001 and 2002 annual reports provided by foundation and corporate donors and from data reported by private foundations in their Form 990-PF tax returns. Information also comes from grantmaker news releases and Web sites and donor lists compiled by leading recipients, such as the September 11th Fund of the United Way of New York and the New York Community Trust and the American Red Cross.
ReThink911 Launches Global Public Awareness Campaign for 12th Anniversary of 9/11 The ReThink911 Campaign, sponsored by Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, is a global public awareness campaign launched this week in an effort to spark a new investigation into the events of September 11, 2001. On a 54-foot-tall Times Square billboard and a variety of transit and outdoor advertising in Boston, Washington, DC, Chicago, Dallas, San Diego, San Francisco, Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, Sydney and London, accompanied by citizen activist events all over the world, the campaign poses the question, “Did you know a 3rd tower fell on 9/11?” To this day, many people are not aware that a third skyscraper, 47-story World Trade Center Building 7, mysteriously collapsed in seven seconds a few hours after the World Trade Center Twin Towers on September 11, 2001. Many reputable and credentialed technical professionals challenge the official report on this building’s collapse by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST). The ReThink911 campaign calls for a new investigation to answer questions about the collapse of Building 7 and the Twin Towers 12 years ago. “The official story of what happened at Ground Zero simply cannot be true,” said Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth Founder Richard Gage. “More than 2,000 professional architects and engineers, along with family members of victims and thousands of concerned citizens, believe a truly independent investigation is...
F O L L O W I N G THE DEATH of Osama Bin Laden, many American young people across the country gathered on street comers and in front of the White House, some celebrating with chants of "U-S-A" and others singing the national anthem. Press coverage of the youthñil celebrators, many of them part of Generation Y or the Millennial Generation, renamed these young people the "9/11 Generation."' Newspaper accounts following Bin Laden's demise discuss him as "the common evil" that the Millennial Generation faced in much the same way as their grandparents had faced Hitler.2 One student remarks that Bin Laden's death is "the defining moment" of his generation.^ Nine-eleven, it appears, is a memorable moment for this generation. Over nine years earlier, on September 11, 2001,1 was also concemed about how young people would come to understand what came to be called "9/11." After spending the moming of September 11, 2001 watching television as the Twin Towers in New York collapsed, I arrived on campus to teach my lower-division history class, and was immediately informed that classes were cancelled for the day because of the "evil attacks." Since I regularly tell my students that "evil" is not a useful analytic term for the writing and understanding of history, I devised a questionnaire for my History 101 students to assess their understanding of the event."
