This paper is an update of the science of global warming. The point of departure is 1983 with the publication of the National Research Council/National Academy of Sciences report Changing Climate (1983). The present author was chairman of the report committee and considers this an appropriate time for an update. The advances (or retreats) in the overall science are reviewed with special emphasis on those that have critical policy implications.

Keywords: Climate change; Carbon cycle; Climate modeling
