{{#if:The bulk of lecture 14 focuses on earth observing systems from small (individual temperature readings from 1848) to large scale operations (satellite) and on the observations themselves. The lecture draws the conclusion that both the physical climate and ecosystems show systematic warming and evidence shows correlated behavior through many systems. Of course, independently warming can be less obvious or even challenged but holistically, the evidence converges.|== Lecture Summary == The bulk of lecture 14 focuses on earth observing systems from small (individual temperature readings from 1848) to large scale operations (satellite) and on the observations themselves.
