A recent study showed that the world’s average temperature has risen one full degree since modern science has begun measuring it. A panel talks about some of the top issues this finding raises: what scientists truly understand about climate and its natural fluctuations, how they measure the world’s temperature, and how they link this change to extreme weather, changes in the natural world, and other developments that could affect humans.
