Syukuro MANABE: Nobel Laureate & Climate Research Pioneer
Dr. Syukuro MANABE, winner of the 2021 Nobel Prize in Physics, was one of the first to sound the alarm about the growing seriousness of global warming. He created a model that could simulate the complex global climate thanks to bold simplification, and was also the first to demonstrate that an increase in carbon dioxide leads to global warming. MANABE's research laid the foundation for today's global warming research, which is being carried out using the latest climate models and supercomputer simulations. In this episode, we will look back at MANABE's achievements and examine the latest research on global warming.
