A New Climate Science Resource from the National Academies


A New Climate Science Resource from the National Academies

The National Academies, the nation’s preeminent independent scientific advisory body, has released a series of videos building on themes laid out in its America’s Climate Choices reports over the past couple of years. Above, you can watch the material as a single long video. Below you can find links to seven themed sections:

Chapter 1: What is Climate?

Chapter 2: Is Earth Warming?

Chapter 3: Greenhouse Gases

Chapter 4: Increased Emissions

Chapter 5: How Much Warming?

Chapter 6: Solar Influence

Chapter 7: Natural Cycles

There’s plenty more on Dot Earth related to these reports. And of course there’s plenty here on the basic science pointing to a rising human influence on the climate system.
