TED talks: the emergent patterns of climate change – Gavin Schmidt


The complex models used by scientists to make predictions about the future of our climate are only useful if we use them as the basis for action, argues Gavin Schmidt in this week’s featured TED talk.

Climate scientist at Columbia University’s Earth Institute and deputy chief at the NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies, Schmidt explains that a true understanding of climate change requires a ‘big picture’ approach.

He adds, “The models are skillful, but what we do with the information from those models is totally up to you.”
