The reality of climate change Video
In this short clip from the National Center for Atmospheric Research, scientist Stan Solomon explains how carbon dioxide released in the air heats the lower atmosphere close to Earth, while the upper atmosphere, or thermosphere, is actually cooled down.
Fancy a little dengue fever? Just stick around, says Dr. Terry Root of Stanford University. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is meeting in Brussels starting Monday. The panel will issue a report on effects of ongoing climate change, and one will be the spread of "tropical" diseases.

CNET News.com's Zamir Haider interviewed Terry Root, a senior fellow at Stanford University's Center for Environmental Science and Policy. Her findings on climate change indicate that the effects are already being seen around the globe. Why has there been so much disagreement over climate change?
CNET News.com's Zamir Haider talked with Stanford University scientist Terry Root who's been studying the effect of climate change on animals and the environment. She explained three changes that would most help cope with global warming.
Scientists are setting out this month to answer some questions concerning the large growth of moss at the bottom of Crater Lake in Oregon. CNET News.com's Vincent Tremblay reports that a remotely operated vehicle system will be used to gather video footage, as well as test samples, to determine how this natural community fits into the lake's ecosystem. The research is being carried out by representatives of Oregon State University, the National Park Service, USGS and Southern Oregon University.
