Climate-change science is uncertain - and so are we

The author discusses uncertainty in science related to climate changes. The author believes that human actions change the level of uncertainty of climate and also cites an example of a lecture given by physicist Richard Phillips Feynman on uncertainty. He suggests ways to control the climate change such as quitting the use of fossil fuels, breeding super plants that absorb carbon quickly so that they can be later buried and using solar energy in abundance.

    Subantarctic mode water (SAMW) has been shown to be a good indicator of anthropogenic climate change in coupled climate models. SAMW in a coupled climate model and the response of modeled SAMW to increasing CO[sub 2] are examined in detail. How SAMW adjusts from climatological values toward a...
