Important AGW science resources
I would like this page to be a jumping off point for people who want to look at actual climate science from actual scientists.
Here is a general overview site that covers the topic well. It is a full on freshman level course from UCSD. The contents of the site will take you appx four hours to read carefully, and the level is basic.
Here is a page from the Princeton Geophysical Fluid Dynamics Lab. Do explore their site while you are at it.
State of the Climate (as up to the minute as you will get):
Here is the NASA GISS page. By exploring the NASA page you will find many discussions from the highest level, in the links to the actual papers and data sets to the ley level.
Now for actual journal papers:
This is a many hundred citation PNAS. It covers tipping points and why they are real and how to look for them as well as making predictions for the future. The paper is very readable and requires little advanced knowledge as presented. The mathematical appendix is available on the right, if you are interested in more detailed arguments.
Note: this is an older paper and more data has come in. All time tables are now moved up.
This is a paper about crop loss.
This is a very famous paper from Nature about observed climate shifts. It was cited over 1100 times.
Review of Temperature Trends
Trends of forcing agents: Note this is an older paper… follow it forward for more recent and alarming data.
Here is a methane paper.
I could easily have given you many dozen more papers and sites. I have chosen these for their readability and depth. If you do read through all of these things you will see that the science is quite sound.
I will also prepare a list of links proving the involvement of big oil and the GOP to obfuscate the truth and lie to the public. It is just like the tobacco companies attempts to obfuscate the science, uses the same play book, and employs many of the same lobbyists and lobbying firms.
