Rising Above the Gathering Storm, Revisited: Rapidly Approaching Category 5
Authors: By Members of the 2005 "Rising Above the Gathering Storm" Committee; Prepared for the Presidents of the National Academy of Sciences, National Academy of Engineering, and Institute of Medicine

Since that time we find ourselves in a country where much has changed--and a great deal has not changed.
