Climate Change: Lines of Evidence

The National Academy of Sciences, National Research Council, Board on Atmospheric Science and Climate have produced this video to illustrate the current state of understanding pertaining to climate change.

This movie is the culmination of effort from the National Academies to provide the public with the best information available regarding climate change and the science that provides insight and understanding into natural and human influences on climate.

While the movie does examine the basics and fundamentals of scientific understanding there are many other lines of evidence not covered. The movie is an excellent introduction to the fundamental scientific understanding regarding current climate change in relation to the natural cycle and how science has come to the 90% confidence level in the conclusion that humans are in fact influencing modern climate.
