There is strong evidence that human-produced greenhouse gases—like carbon dioxide and methane—are changing the Earth’s climate.
So says the President of the National Academy of Sciences, Ralph Cicerone.
He spoke about the science of climate change at the Saint Louis Science Center this week.
And Cicerone told St. Louis Public Radio’s Véronique LaCapra that although the climate has changed in the past, this time is different.
An exhibition on climate change has opened at the Saint Louis Science Center.
The exhibition stays away from political controversies, focusing on the science of climate change and its human and environmental implications.
Through text, diagrams, interactive stations, and videos, the exhibition shows how human activities are producing greenhouse gasses and contributing to climate change.
