Climate Change Science in 25 mins - from US National Academy of Sciences

This is YouTube clip from the US National Acacemy of Sciences explains the science of Climate Change in 25 mins. It answers questions like How do we know the earth is warming? How do we know that CO2 from human activities is causing global warming? How much energy our activities are adding to the planet each year - its staggering. Why the heating can't be attributed to fluctuations in solar activity (the sun), short term climate cycles (like El Nino/La Nina) or longterm cycles like iceages. A good investment of time. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gIUN5ziSfNc
