An ex-VP preached about it. Your weatherman warned you about it. And public-service announcements made you feel guilty as hell for not doing more to stop it. But no matter how hard you tried to deny it, global warming is here, and we can no longer ignore its effects. You can consider all the issues surrounding the phenomenon in the Cleveland Museum of Natural History's newly opened Climate Change exhibition. Featuring everything from dead coral to stuffed polar bears scrounging for imaginary food, the interactive exhibits provide an honest picture of how climate change is affecting the world. The exhibit continues through December 31. Today's hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Admission is $10, and less for students and seniors. — Hayden 1 Wade Oval Dr., 216-231-4600, cmnh.org.
