Adam Sobel doesn't want to prove that climate change is real. If you don't believe yet, he's confident you will eventually. Instead, what he wants to do is help our decision making about long-term events with future consequences to be better. He talks about climate change and how it has already and will continue to affect New York City, and how everyone should be thinking differently.

Adam Sobel is a professor at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory and Fu Foundation School of Engineering and Applied Sciences. He is an atmospheric scientist who specializes in the dynamics of climate and weather, particularly in the tropics, on time scales of days to decades.

This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx
