Some Climate Change References:

I’m not a scientist and will never be one; thus, I’ll never participate in the scientific investigation of climate change.

However, I do have a fairly technical background and do have some ability to do a little bit of critical thinking and evaluation, so I’ve been doing quite a bit of online research related to climate change. I must admit that a good share of what I’ve read is by people who are skeptics — sometimes called deniers by some of the most ardent global warming alarmists — to one degree or another of human caused global warming.

I’ve included links on the site to quite a few of the items I’ve been looking at and I’ll continue adding more as I find them.

For any who may be interested, the links can be found from the drop down menu on the top bar by clicking on References and then select the appropriate category, as shown in the picture on the right.

I’ll be going back to review a lot of these, including those that I have printed out, to refresh my memeory and to weigh some of the newer (to me) material against some that I read a while ago.

My reading is derived from a number of sources.

I have two google news feeds related to the topic. One of them sends me news stories containing the key phrase climate change. The other feed gives me stories that contain the words sunspot and solar.

I am also subscribed to several blogs that are related to climate change. Most of them can be found on the sidebar on the right side of this page.

Other sources include

  • those found on Google searches on words or phrases related to what I am currently trying to understand

  • links from other pages or sites

My blogging plans for On Climate are to publish on a semi-regular basis, probably a couple of times a month, but it may be more or less often than that depending on what other things are happening in my life and on my other blogs.

(In the interest of consolidating online material, this post and the reference material was moved from a blog that has been inactive since last year. —  MpG 9/11/2010)
