Climate Change Reconsidered: The Report of the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change
While theclimatet.com focuses on forecasting issues, the forecasts are, of course, affected by the knowledge about causal factors. To date, this literature has been scattered over a wide number of disciplines and a staggering number of journals. Thankfully, a convenient source for the scientific evidence has recently been published: Climate Change Reconsidered: The Report of the Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change. In contrast to the IPCC report by the United Nations, there were no political pressures involved in this report – and much of the research was done without funding. You can see many reviews at amazon.com – nearly all highly favorable at present — and much discussion of this book on blogs.
