Scientists are finding that models developed to study Earth's climate can be used to determine whether exoplanets can support life.
According to independent analyses, Earth's global surface temperature in 2019 was the second warmest since modern recordkeeping began in 1880.
A new evaluation of global climate models used to project Earth's future global average surface temperature finds that most have been quite accurate.
