2005 was the warmest year on record in the Northern Hemisphere. On today’s Underreported, we’ll focus our attention on climate change, and whether or not the effects of global warming are already being felt. We’ll look at some of the lesser-known issues currently being debated—from exploding beetle populations in the West, to the financial risks associated with global warming. Dr. Paul Epstein from the Center for Health and the Global Environment, Dr. Gavin Schmidt from NASA/Goddard Institute for Space Studies, and Adam Aston of BusinessWeek join us.
