New insights in Climate Science and the 5th IPCC report

This fall the 5th IPCC report became available with new conclusions regarding the development of climate and the importance of anthropogenic causes. In this EnergyDay several possible consequences of the rising CO2 and the global warming for the oceans and for the melting of ice were discussed. Also the relation between primeval climate, temperature and greenhouse gases was discussed.
