Here’s a great little guide to climate changeDecember 10th, 2008 by cdunagan
I can’t believe I’ve taken this long to review “Understanding and Responding to Climate Change,” a great little pamphlet from the National Academy of Sciences and its affiliates.
This 24-page booklet, released in May, is perfect for people who would like to know more about the science of climate change without first getting a degree in climatology.
It discusses the natural and man-made factors that contribute to climate change and why researchers believe that humans are having a major impact. There are sections on uncertainty and the difficulty of creating accurate computer models. The authors also talk about what people can do and why change is so difficult.
You can download the publication from the National Academies Web site, (PDF 3.3 mb) but you may want to have printed copies for yourself and others you know. You can order copies directly from the Web for free.
