Is there a way to scale down the climate change problem to run tests and see the outcomes?

    The below link details a study in which researchers use passive greenhouses as a microcosm for climate change.  In the greenhouse , the conditions can be altered to display different moisture contents, temperatures, light, or wind speeds etc. that could occur as a result of climate disruption.  Though these studies offer some insight to the effects, we will not truly know the effects of climate disruption until they actually take place.

    Like andyyeah mentioned, there have been tests done in controlled environments. However, tests in natural “real” environments can offer a lot more unreliable data. Scaling down the climate in a real environment can prove to be rather difficult and skew the findings. The climate is a very delicate system that shouldn’t be messed with.
