Dear Dr. Alberts:

The Administration is conducting a review of U.S. policy on climate change. We seek the Academy's assistance in identifying the areas in the science of climate change where there are the greatest certainties and uncertainties.

We would also like your views on whether there are any substantive differences between the IPCC Reports and the IPCC summaries.

We would appreciate a response as soon as possible.

Sincerely yours,
