Each year scientists at the cutting edge of climate research undertaken all across the world gather at the Comer Conference in Wisconsin to exchange their latest findings and data. Physics, chemistry, geology, oceanography, biology and dozens of other disciplines are documenting the serious impact of global warming. It's science - not politics, scientists emphasize. With climate change becoming an increasingly urgent problem, many experts express concern with the lack of policy based on the science, especially in the United States, and with the way the media has covered climate change.
Before they head back to their research, the conference closes with a hilltop picnic at the tent where the scientists join together for meals and to continue sharing research during the conference.
