Whether you believe it or not, the fact is that our world is getting warmer.

While new technologies and processes are being developed to tackle the amount of CO2 in our atmosphere, they are nowhere near the levels that will make a sizeable impact.

Dr. Peter Irvine, Lecturer in Climate Change & Solar Geoengineering at University College London joined Jonathan to discuss.

Also, Dr. Jessamyn Fairfield and Dr. Shane Bergin joined Jonathan to run through this week's top science news stories in Newsround.
