"Everything should be made as simple as possible, but no simpler" - Einstein
The science of climate change / global warming is vast. The new 2013 IPCC Science reportprovides the most authoritative compendia of professional research. An excellent scientific resource isRealClimate, run by professional climatologists. The website Skeptical Science has accessible articles rebutting pseudo-scientific disinformation on climate science.
Shown is the global-mean surface temperature evolution from the Last Glacial Maximum through the Holocene, based on palaeoclimatic proxy data (grey and light blue lines, with the purple and blue shading showing one standard deviation), instrumental measurements since 1750 AD (HadCRUT data, black line) and different global warming scenarios for the future. Threshold ranges for crossing various tipping points where major subsystems of the climate system are destabilized have been added. The range for the West Antarctic Ice Sheet (WAIS) has been adapted to account for the observation that part of it has probably tipped already. THC, thermohaline circulation; ENSO, El Niño–Southern Oscillation; EAIS, East Antarctic Ice Sheet. [From: Why the right climate target was agreed in Paris]
