Download and read online Global Warming in PDF and EPUB How much of global warming is due to human activities? How far will it be possible to adapt to changes of climate? Sir John Houghton's definitive, full colour guide to climate change answers these questions and more by providing the best and latest information available, including the latest IPCC findings. The simple, logical flow of ideas gives an invaluable grounding in the science, as well as the physical and human impacts of climate change for undergraduate students across a wide range of disciplines. Accessible to both scientists and non-scientists, the text avoids mathematical equations and includes more technical material in boxes, while simple figures help students to understand the conclusions the science leads to without being overwhelmed by vast amounts of data. Questions for students to consider and test their understanding are included in each chapter, along with carefully selected further reading to expand their knowledge.

Download and read online Global Warming in PDF and EPUB 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.

Download and read online Global Warming in PDF and EPUB 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.
