If you live in eastern north America, it felt like the ice age is returning. Meanwhile millions of people in Europe got a winter of mild rain. So what is it, global cooling or global warming? We don't have to guess. Scientists measure temperatures all over the world, on the ground and by satellite. That information pours into the U.S. National Climatic Data Center. Jessica Blunden is a climate scientist and lead editor writing reports there.

Last week a giant Norwegian investment fund promised to spend billions on renewable energy. Sierra Club India saw an opportunity to finance the need for solar power in India. We'll discover what happened, and what could be, with our guest Justin Guay of Sierra Club India.

The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change released it's second major report. This one is not about proving climate change is triggered by human emissions. Nor does it suggest how to reduce that greenhouse gas pollution of the atmosphere and ocean.

This report says climate change has arrived already, and that further warming will occur. It tries to use science to outline who is most vulnerable to coming impacts, where the greatest risks lie, and how humans can best adapt to changes in everything from rainfall to violent storms, rising seas and a hotter world.

The lead authors present very severe impacts, but remain strangely optimistic that humans will find a way to manage these risks. They assume global governments will react to public pressure, and find rational solutions. So far, that is not happening.
