Climate Facts

Climate Facts

My intention on these pages is to post facts (with sources) and links to facts and sources. Too often discussions about climate change degenerate into arguments about (what should be) facts. The aim of this page is to get the facts straight. The facts will be sorted more or less by issues. Some of the issues are basic to climate change, and others are issues that are given a lot of play by the media.
