Everyone and everything on Earth is affected by the climate. ACS has a clear position statement on global climate change (www.acs.org/policy). The ACS Climate Science Initiative includes a toolkit for use by members, a challenge grant program for local sections and divisions, and narratives for communicating the science of climate change to a variety of audiences. I will discuss strategies aimed at enriching and expanding on the ACS position statement on climate change and related ACS programs and activities.
