Global Warming, infomation for the curious

Here's a short list of some global warming and climate change resources I've gathered over the years.  I hope you find some of it useful !

 

Books:

For an interesting account of what the scientists have been trying to do for the last 40 years or so to convince the political leaders to take action, to inform the media, and to counter the global warming denialists, read:

'Science as a Contact Sport: Inside the Battle to Save the Earth's Climate' by Stephen H. Schneider (2009) ISBN 978-1426205408

(Unfortunately, Dr. Schneider died last year.  wiki link)
