Scientists are sounding the alarm on climate change.
More than 11,000 climate scientists signed a declaration this week warning of a "climate emergency."
Several San Diego scientists signed onto the paper, which also calls for an urgent need for new ways to measure the effects of a warming planet. The paper says climate scientists and world leaders need to talk about climate change through multiple metrics, not just the higher temperatures at the Earth's surface.
