I want to know more about climate change as it's likely to affect my life.

This week, scientists claim a 'pause' in global warming over the past 15 years didn't really happen. The problem is that loads of people around the world measure climate data in different ways. This can affect the results of temperature readings. Scientists have now corrected for these differences in the data, and it looks like the pause in warming didn't happen.

I think we should have an organisation that checks if climate research is accurate to stop this confusion.
