Climate Effects

Peering into a hazy future

Scientists can’t yet say with certainty how climate change will proceed in the future, or how it impact our day-to-day lives. This is because translating changes in global temperature to trends in local weather and environmental conditions continues to be a challenge. Here in ‘The Effects,’ we look at what scientific studies tell us about how human influence might already be affecting climate and weather—and other environmental phenomena—as well as how those effects might develop in the future.
