When it comes to climate change, the media, politicians, and other prominent voices have declared that |the science is settled.| In reality, the long game of telephone from research to reports to the popular media is corrupted by misunderstanding and misinformation. Core questions -- about the way the climate is responding to our influence, and what the impacts will be -- remain largely unanswered. The climate is changing, but the why and how aren't as clear as you've probably been led to believe.
