These comments from 15 climate scientists and experts discuss the science of climate change detection and attribution—the body of research that helps to characterize the role of human activity in climate change—as well as how models are used to develop climate change projections. The goal of these comments is to explain how scientists know that anthropogenic GHG emissions are driving global warming which is, in turn, leading to other climate hazards (e.g., more severe heatwaves, droughts, and floods) that create risks for companies. The comments also highlight climate tools and data that companies can, and already do, use to evaluate climate-related risks to their assets, operations, work force, and supply chains.
