The Global Warming Facts You Need to Know

UC San Diego's climate scientist V. Ramanathan explains how existing technology could be the answer to reducing climate change.

Under current guidelines, the planet is on target to exceed a 2 degrees Celsius by 2050 and a 4 degrees by 2100, triggering serious large-scale problems by the end of the century. Ramanathan accurately predicted this trend back in 1980 by charting it along a graph. He now wants us to find ways to bend this curve through ready-to-adopt solutions today.
