    "that the climate to get warmer"

    I have to complete following sentence:
    A scientist says :"We _____________ calculate that the climate to get warmer"

    I don't understand the structure of the phrase :"That the climate to get warmer"
    I'd have written instead : ", that the climate is going to get warmer"

    I apologize for my na´ve question and thank you in advance.

    Yes, you are right you need "going" or "beginning"etc. before "to get" in that phrase.
