30 November 2009: Energy and Climate: The European and American Physical Societies, totalling close to 200 000 members, have made statements of relevance for current climate concerns; A Position Paper (EPS)"Energy and Environment - The Intimate Link" and a Statement on Climate Change (APS). Both emphasize that the complexity of the climate issue (climate often defined as average weather over a 30 year period), makes accurate predictions difficult, and urge enhanced efforts to better understand underlying causes, including effects of human activity on the Earth's climate and the intimate link between energy and environment. This challenge is being amplified by possible upcoming energy shortage and the need to explore non-fossile energy resources better. Interplay between a number of science disciplines, among them physics, is needed to make necessary progress. EPS stresses that sustained and improved monitoring of planet Earth is needed to correctly select and understand changing climate parameters and to verify and validate climate models. - [EPS-1], [EPS-2], [Physics World], [APS-1], [APS-2]
