As we all know, climate-warming has become an  indisputable fact, and this world-wide problem brings a series of serious results, such as climate change, the rising of sea-level and acceleration of glacier-melting, endless natural disasters and so on, which pose a serious survival challenge to all living things, including human beings. Climate-warming is a global problem, and it is the common challenge facing the people of the whole world. We have to attach a great importance to this problem. This paper argues that, to deal with global climate-warming, all the countries in the world need to act together. As for each individual, the most important point is to develop a low-carbon lifestyle, which was advocated during the Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen in 2009. Then, as the main place for people to get knowledge and attitudes about science and experience scientific research, what role should modern science center and science museum play in dealing with this crucial and urgent global climate-warming? This paper argues that, based on the above question, The modern science center and science museum should pay much more attention to help people understand and learn how to deal with climate-warming, not only just focus on the popularization of the knowledge of science and technology,  scientific and technological achievements, and providing places for people to play interesting experimental games. Modern science centers and science museums should establish a special area to highlight climate-warming problem, where people have access to know the origin of climate-warming and what challenges it has posed to  the whole world. These centers and museums help people realize the importance and the urgency for all countries to deal with climate-warming problem, as also show people the achievements which have been made in recent decades, it also introduces the main practices adopted by all countries in the world. The most important point is to help people get knowledge about how to deal with climate-warming in everyday life, introducing the subject of low-carbon to the people, advocating low-carbon lifestyle, help people develop low-carbon living habits in every detail of daily life and make contributions to lessen the problems due to climate-warming.
