information to assist in the formulation of
policy and/or management decisions to adapt
and mitigate climate variability and change is
very timely. The next major challenge is to
develop detailed implementation plans and to
obtain the substantial support required."

More than a dozen different federal agencies
have some involvement with the threat of
climate change, and research to understand it,
so it is a daunting challenge to harness the
considerable US intellectual resources in the
design of an appropriate response. The CCSP
Strategic Plan, itself a huge effort, is an
essential and welcome step in that direction.
It sets the stage for the next task, which is
the coordination of research budgets in light
of the Plan, and institutional realization of its
vision of integrated decision support."

change experiment is unclear, the potential
consequences are profound and will impact
every citizen on Earth. We at Scripps
Institution of Oceanography are encouraged
by this cabinet-level plan to accelerate
research on climate change."

"I have read with care the Strategic Plan for
the Climate Change Science Program. It is my
view that both the Plan and the Process used
in developing the Plan reflect a welcome and
refreshing openness to confront the significant
scientific issues posed by climate variability
and change. The Goals and Priorities are
