What else do we need to find out? Climate Kids: NASA’s eyes on the Earth. http://climate.nasa.gov/kids/bigQuestions/weCanHelp/. This section of NASA’s Climate Kids site helps kids understand the complexities of the Earth system and why it is difficult to know the exact impacts of climate change.

Uncertainties: Unresolved questions about Earth’s climate. Global Climate Change: Vital Signs of the Planet by NASA. http://climate.nasa.gov/uncertainties/. This page discusses the various aspects of the Earth’s system that lead to uncertainties in predicting climate.

Back to the Future: The science of building scenarios. Vital Climate Change Graphics by UNEP/GRID-Arendal, Arendal, Norway. http://www.grida.no/publications/vg/climate2/page/2685.aspx. This section explains the use of scenarios in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s (IPCC) predictions for future climate impacts.
