Background

This is an index of blog posts about climate change, written by Milan Ilnyckyj for a sibilant intake of breath. The purpose of this page is to allow posts on a particular topic to be identified quickly and easily.

I am also the editor of BuryCoal.com - a group blog that argues that coal and unconventional oil and gas should be left underground. Substantive posts that I have written for that site are included in this index.

One page introduction

I wrote a one page summary, laying out some of the key items for consideration and listing some of the most accessible and reputable sources of information about climate change. For more information on specific subjects, see the index below.

Key Climate Questions

Deniers and delayers

Note: By 'deniers' I mean those who reject the facts that the Earth's climate is warming, that anthropogenic greenhouse gasses are largely responsible, and that further emissions and warming will likely be harmful to human and natural systems. 'Delayers' are those who accept those facts, but believe that we should not try to mitigate our greenhouse gas emissions.

Those who are unsure of what to think on the climate issue may find my page for waverers useful.
