How to Explain Climate Change to Your Cranky Old Uncle

Relax, the hard work has been done for you.  The U.S. National Academy of Sciences, in conjunction with Britain's equally prestigious Royal Society, have reduced the science to a handy pamphlet aimed at the lay reader.  It's entitled, "A Discussion on Climate Change: Evidence and Causes."

The 36-page booklet is detailed but not buried under scientific jargon most people can't understand.  At the link given you can download the entire pamphlet, the Q&A section, the "Climate Basics" section, or all of the graphs and figures.

Climate science is based on climate computer models. But the 17 year temperature pause was not predicted by the models and therefore the models are wrong. They have attempted to explain this unfortunate truth by claiming that the missing heat is buried deep in the world's oceans, but the models didn't predict this either so once again the models are wrong.

I noticed that your handy pamphlet does not mention anything about the 17 year pause. Funny about that.
