Summary:
For several years, evidence has been mounting that the global climate is steadily getting warmer. But whether the unusual weather patterns alarming environmentalists -- increasing temperatures, reduced snowfall, and rising sea levels -- are evidence of global warming or just passing blips in the earth's notoriously bumpy weather record continues to stir controversy.

For several years, evidence has been mounting that the global climate is steadily getting warmer. But whether the unusual weather patterns alarming environmentalists -- increasing temperatures, reduced snowfall, and rising sea levels -- are evidence of global warming or just passing blips in the earth's notoriously bumpy weather record continues to stir controversy. Before world leaders unanimously heed their cries of "wolf," scientists studying climate change must be able to tease apart regional climate changes and short-term weather fluctuations, such as El Niρo, from permanent changes that are happening worldwide.
