The 101 Climate Question

If you do not have time for global warming, the 101 climate question is just the answer.

What is climate sensitivity and why is it so important? Michael E. Mann and Stefan Rahmstorf answer the question.

Michael E. Mann is Distinguished Professor of Atmospheric Science at Penn State University and director of the Penn State Earth System Science Center (ESSC). Stefan Rahmstorf obtained his PhD in oceanography at Victoria University of Wellington in 1990. He has worked as a scientist at the New Zealand Oceanographic Institute, at the Institute of Marine Science in Kiel and since 1996 at the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research. His work focuses on the role of the oceans in climate change.
