Guide to the Science of Climate Change in the Twenty-First Century
by David H. Manz, Ph.D., P. Eng., AOE, FCAE, 2020.
It is my wish that the Guide provides an introduction to the science of global warming and climate change that can be understood by anyone with an interest. It was inspired by my experiences as an instructor at the University of Calgary, Faculty of Continuing Education where I taught the subject since 2007, the same year the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change published the Fourth Assessment Report.
The Guide was completely written on December 12, 2020 the fifth anniversary of the Paris Agreement. It has been rewritten after the IPCC published AR6 WG1 Climate Change 2021: The Physical Science Basis.
The Guide is organized into a Front Matter (includes two Prefaces), and 24 Chapters. Each of the elements can be downloaded independently.
The Guide is constantly being reviewed and updated. Most recently August 14, 2021 to include the recent publication of the IPCC WG1 report Climate Change 2021: The Physical Science Basis which was published on August 9, 2021.
Guide to Mitigation of Climate Change is in preparation and will be published soon.
