Supported by in-depth scientific evidence, Singer and Avery present the compelling concept that global temperatures have been rising mostly or entirely because of a natural cycle. Unstoppable Global Warming explains why we're warming, why it's not very dangerous, and why we can't stop it anyway.

John Houghton explores the scientific basis of global warming and the likely impacts of climate change on human society, then addresses the question of what action might be taken by governments, industry, and by individuals to mitigate the effects.

Provides an overview of federal research on global warming in 1990 and identifies policy issues for dealing with climate change. It is intended to provide a framework for understanding the science and policy issues concerning global climate change. This report: 1. describes what is known and now known about greenhouse gases; 2. examines the strengths and limitations of estimates of enhanced global warming; and 3. identifies possible policy responses. Charts and tables.

Global Warming: A Guide to the Science reviews the scientific literature concerning the environmental consequences of increased levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide, the most prominent greenhouse gas contributed by human activities. The authors conclude that increases during the twentieth century have produced no deleterious effects upon global climate or temperature. Increased carbon dioxide has, however, markedly increased the growth rates of plants as inferred from numerous laboratory and field experiements. There is no clear evidence, nor unique attribution, of the global effects on climate of CO[subscript 2] resulting from human activities. Meaningful assessments of the environmental impacts of such anthropogenic CO[subscript 2] are not yet possible because estimates derived from models simulating global and regional changes in climate on interannual, decadal, and centennial time scales remain highly uncertain.

Global warming has become such a hot topic these days because of its relevance to greenhouse gases that some scientists feel are the cause for warming and may cause the polar ice caps to melt and flood coastal cities. These would be so catastrophic as to cause great economic and social hardship that would be insurmountable. Of course it is related to the production of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the burning of fossil fuels in automobiles and other industrial equipment. With sufficient data, however, it can be concluded that although the earth's surface and atmosphere does indeed have effects on our weather patterns, there is nothing consistent that points to repetitions of global warming over millions of years since the earth has existed. But if you look at the extraterrestrial sources as the earth changes ecliptic and changes rotation around the sun, a pattern of repetition is clear. A recurrent cycle of change resulted when the 100 thousand year elliptical orbit was conflated with the 52 thousand year ecliptic cycle. A repetitive cycle of glaciation and global warming emerged that seemed to follow the past history of these events from known studies throughout the ages by scientists in the field of climatology.

Earth's climate has always varied, but it is now changing more rapidly than at any other time in recent centuries. The climate is very complex, and many factors play important roles in determining how it changes. Why is the climate changing? Could Earth be getting warmer by itself? Are people doing things that make the climate warmer? Award-winning science writer Seymour Simon teams up with the Smithsonian Institution to give you a full-color photographic introduction to the causes and effects of global warming and climate change.
