The day Scientific American, Nature or New Scientist take “anthropogenic climate change isn’t happening” seriously is the day we should concede to the Senator Minchins of this world, but that day has not yet come.

- Nature: The Road to Copenhagen.
- New Scientist: Topic Guide: Climate Change.
Today from the Surry Hills Library I borrowed The Complete Guide to Climate Change by Brian Dawson, Matt Spannagle (Routledge 2009).
For anyone trying to separate the fact from the fiction, The Complete Guide to Climate Change is an indispensable resource. Taking you through the A to Z of the key scientific, geographical and socio-political issues involved in the study of the environment and the implications of mankind’s effect upon it, topics covered include:Environmental Science – the Carbon Cycle and the "Greenhouse Gases"; The impacts of climate change on life, land and sea; Mitigation strategies from carbon capture to carbon taxes; The Kyoto Protocol and UNFCC; Renewable fuel sources, from wind to solar power. Including guides to the latest scientific and governmental thinking on climate change, this book will tell you all you need to know about perhaps the biggest issue facing mankind today.
It seems from Google to be getting wide distribution in libraries but no substantial reviews yet.
