Every 5-7 years, members of the IPCC (International Panel on Climate Change) meet to discuss future changes to Earth’s climate. Over the past two decades, near-unanimous agreement exists amongst them that the Earth’s warming over the past century is due mostly to man-made causes.

One that does a particularly good job, is Climate in Peril, a guide you can download by clicking on the link. It’s a very convenient guide for someone looking to get an overview of the important aspects of climate change science, without needing a PhD to do so.

In particular, an excellent section, Reclaiming Creation, offers a look at how the Christian creation care movement is adding fuel to the fire of a renewed environmental push.
