The BBC Synopsis of this program:

3/3. New Challenges: In the light of the science behind global warming and the views of climate change sceptics, Dr Iain Stewart looks at the biggest challenge facing researchers: prediction. 3/3. New Challenges

In the light of the science behind global warming and the arguments of climate change sceptics, Dr Iain Stewart looks at the biggest challenge facing climate scientists. How can they predict exactly what changes global warming will bring?

The journey takes him from early attempts to model the climate system with dishpans to supercomputers, and on to the frontline of climate research: Greenland. Most worryingly, he discovers that scientists are increasingly concerned that their models are underestimating the speed of changes already under way. [AD,S]
