Greetings! Here for your perusal are a number of articles, and websites that explain Global Warming. As it is a complex subject that is EASILY spun in many directions, I have tried to pull together a few resources that help explain it in easy terms. All of these sites contain referenced material, if you wish to go more in depth.
If anyone has more information that they'd like to include, please post it. Please make sure that your posts contain active links, and the material can be understood by anyone.
