In this first of three lectures in the Frontiers of Science unit on climate change, Columbia University Professor Peter deMenocal discusses the scientific basis of our current understanding of climate change. He explores current and historical data sources about changes in the Earth’s temperature and greenhouse gas levels, and explains how they can be used to put together a picture of global warming. The lecture further emphasizes how the science of climate change has evolved over time and investigates possible solutions for dealing with global warming in the future. A lecture video and transcript are also available on FoSO.
