If you try to have a conversation about the changing climate, you could find yourself in a heated debate about its scientific legitimacy.

But as mentioned in a recent episode of “Codebreaker,” there’s an almost complete consensus among the scientific community that it is real, and humans are to blame.

What are some viable solutions? Can reengineering humans to have cat-like vision so they consume less energy, or producing renewable energy on a global scale actually help? These are some of the topics Ben Johnson, the host of “Codebreaker” explored. What are some of your suggestions?
