    As world leaders criticise the United States for pulling out of the Paris climate agreement, scientists are trying to work out exactly what a warmer world will mean.

    That includes researchers in Senegal, who are making precise measurements of the ocean to try to predict how it will change.

    And people who make their living from the sea say those changes are already being felt.

     

    Al Jazeera's Nicolas Haque reports from Ouakam, Senegal.
