Introduction to Climate Change Pages

Climate change is the most important issue that faces us in the world today. It has been overshadowed by the global economic crisis but it hasn't gone away.

I did a lot of work on this climate change website in the lead up to the United Nations conference at Copenhagen (Dec 2009), and in the year that followed. My aim was to create a useful information resource that would cover the whole subject of climate change, which is being intensified by human activities: what the issue is, what it means, and what we can do about it. I also wanted to present you with links to reliable sources of further information.

These pages should be a useful read for a few years, whether you are new to the subject or if you want a more rounded picture. The information will age though so please do check the links to the sources I have provided.

Content of these pages last updated December 2014

For the record I have no moral high ground to stand on when it comes to climate change: I'm working on it but I know that my carbon footprint is still too big. I do have some knowledge and passion about this subject, which I can hopefully share and help to inspire. It is a beautiful world out there, and it is important that we try and keep it that way!

About this website

  • All pictures on the site have titles, which you should be able to see if you hover over them with your mouse-pointer. I have used this idea to add additional notes in places, which you can see wherever hover over this symbol: [i]
  • If you are browsing these pages with smart phone / tablet you wont have a mouse-pointer. Not to worry though as you can click on the pictures: this will fire up a message with the picture title for you to read, and will also give you the option of opening the images as full size. [i]

Follow this link for information about how these web pages are structured. Notice that I have tried to design the site so that you can read through a summary of each topic, with the ability to delve into more detail about specific points of interest.
