The Realities of Global Climate Change. Climate change and the role humans play. Presented by a senior climate scientist with the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA).

Global climate change is a real and existential global environmental issue. The presentation will explore what climate change is, its causes and effects, and the role humans play in the warming of the earth. The presentation will cover the role of the sun, what greenhouse gases are, how they warm the planet, and how the environment is affected. The presenter will provide links to other resources and will respond to questions people have about climate change and NOAA. The presenter is Howard J. Diamond, PhD, a senior climate scientist with NOAA's Air Resources Laboratory (ARL), where he directs ARL's Atmospheric Sciences and Modeling Division and manages the U.S. Climate Reference Network. His research interests include overall global climate trends, tropical cyclones, and Arctic and Antarctic sea ice trends. Dr. Diamond has special expertise in conveying scientific concepts to other scientists and the public.
