University of Minnesota Meteorology Professor Kathy Klink explains how global warming produces more moisture in the air, which may account for more winter snowstorms, like the one that rocked the Twin Cities last weekend. Klink also discussed political pressure placed these days on climate scientists, and how scientists in general are ill-prepared to enter political debates.
