Climate Change Evidence and Causes

One of the endless frustrations of trying to communicate about climate change with people who are relatively new to the topic, at least beyond the level of headlines and bumper stickers, is the paucity of really good introductory material.

There is now a Climate Change Bridge Google Group, which will be the home for project discussions for the foreseeable future.
