One of this century's great challenges will be mitigating the effects of our steadily warming planet. In today's episode we explore the consequences of our changing climate. First, we visit Chad and Bangladesh: two areas suffering extreme drought and extreme flooding, respectively. And next, our executive producer Jennifer Dionisio speaks with atmospheric chemist Susan Solomon, a key member of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, about what the world's population might face in the future.
