  Climate report creates dilemma for Trump administration
A draft of a U.S. government climate science report drew wide attention recently, partly because of its contents, but mainly because it creates a political problem for the Trump administration. This may have surprised the wider world, but those of us involved in the preparation of the report anticipated and pointed out this impending dilemma even before the inauguration.

Global Carbon Cycle Primer

There is a natural greenhouse effect when carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide and other gases trap heat in the atmosphere and warm the Earth. The concentrations of these gases remained relatively constant from the 700s to the 1700s – the dawn of the Industrial Revolution. Since then, greenhouse gas concentrations have risen 44%, raising the Earth’s mean global temperature by 1.4°F.
