Dr. Pamela Ellis, executive director of Books Motivate Foundation and book project visionary, stated, “The ongoing purpose for the publication of Climate Controversy 2013 is to provide a philosophical and scientific framework for education and community action in regards to the stark reality of climate change. The 2013 Common Ground student essayists and expert climate scientist contributors inform the public-at-large why reducing the human-induced, or anthropogenic, climate changes that have begun can no longer be ignored by anyone. It is our hope that people everywhere will take ownership of this critical environmental policy issue.” Dr. Ellis further discussed Climate Controversy 2013 highlights during a presentation at the Shepherdstown Community Club monthly dinner meeting on April 16, 2013.
