Summary
NOVA reports on the discovery that the amount of sunlight reaching Earth is dropping - a big surprise given international concern over global warming. Less sunlight might hardly seem to matter when our planet is stewing in greenhouse gases, but the discovery of global dimming has led some scientists to claim that the earth's climate is heating up much faster than most previous predictions
