Learn about the major infl uences on Earth’s climate, which include atmospheric processes, the oceans and energy fl ow. Explore how we learn about past climates and what we now know about them. Lastly, examine climate change from the perspective of the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) and the skeptics.
