Climate Data and Trends

:37
Interview: (former) Dr. D. James Baker; Undersecretary of Commerce for Oceans and Atmosphere
Discusses emerging climate patterns and concerns that human populations
may contribute to global warming. (Cutaways to smokestacks, traffic)

:32
Interview: Tom Karl, Senior Scientist; NOAA Nat'l Climatic Data Center
1) There are natural climate variations, but in recent years the rapid changes
are now much more in evidence
2) The burning of fossil fuels & operation of cars leads to an increase in CO2

:10
Animation: CO2 Pollution

:22
Interview: Dan Albritton, Ph. D. Director, NOAA Aeronomy Laboratory
1) Scientists now believe that the first signs of human influence on global
climate are now just emerging.
2) Areas in the midpoints of large continents are likely to be warmer
3) Potential for temperature increase by end of century that is larger than
any natural change since the ice age
