    The climate is changing: changing moisture, increased temperature, accelerated growth and distribution of pollen, increased allergic reactions. Scientists agree that climate impacts are the defining issue of our time. Thankfully, many are working to build a framework for climate future planning. In this episode of World Ocean Radio, host Peter Neill hails the work of Dr. Paul Mayewski and his team at the Climate Change Institute who are creating a powerful software matrix that will relate changes in the environment to plausible, scaleable scenarios and plans to meet the needs of our climate future.
