The 2014 report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change warns about record melting of the Arctic ice cap, rising sea levels, ocean acidification and more severe storms caused by increasing atmospheric carbon dioxide produced by fossil fuels. Some scientists express concern about some climate change claims. This talk discusses how climate is affected by the sun, volcanoes and the atmosphere. Temperature and rainfall observations of the past few hundred years are compared to climate model predictions. Observed changes in sea level, ocean acidity and storm frequency are also presented.
