Today's Global Warming and Cooling Links

Lots of new links about Global Warming today:

There is a very interesting review by Jim Hansen about An Inconvenient Truth and other books about the subject. A good resource to throw at skeptics or uninformed people. Via Framing Science.

Then there is a post at The Intersection about the not so pressing worries about a coming ice age in the seventies. So much about the unjustified hype then.

Via Uncertain Principles comes a post about How to Cool a Planet. My take is that fertilizing the oceans with iron to boost growing algae is the most feasible, and deploying mirrors or lenses is better something we try first with Venus, as soon as that is possible. It is certainly more expensive than cutting green house gases in the first place. Anyway, it is good to have options in case it gets (still!) worse than expected.

Finally, RealClimate has an interesting article about the difficulty in modeling the melting of the ice caps and the rising sea levels.
