In this video from the 2016 EAPS Climate Summit, MIT’s Associate Professor Dan Cziczo discusses the role clouds play in combating the warming effects of greenhouse gases. 

Professor Czisco explains how greenhouses gasses have changed our climate in the modern age, and why early predictions of global temperatures were inaccurate.

He uses a live experiment to illustrate how human-made particles in the atmosphere result in cloud formations, which in turn minimize the global warming effect of greenhouse gasses.
