Climate change, once considered a problem for a distant future, has moved firmly into the present. And while global warming is affecting us here and now, if we act urgently, we can still avoid the worst consequences. Hear the latest science without jargon or political spin, and become better equipped to talk confidently about the most important issue of our time.
