Climate in Peril

climate_in_perilEvery 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. The IPCC reports themselves, however, can be completely overwhelming to the casual reader. To account for this, many various documents have been produced which attempt to explain the IPCC reports more succinctly and simply. 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.
