Data File 1 - Climate Change

Its the biggest problem facing mankind, yet it is often difficult to get real scientific facts rather than tabloid generalisations.

I am going to start producing data files about a variety of environmental issues. These will include scientific links and comment, as well as my own opinion.

These files will be updated as I find new resources and materials, so hopefully they will build into a useful resource for environmentalists or indeed anyone who is interested in an issue covered.

If anyone reading this, knows where online it is possible to view the much referenced study -

Stabilization Wedges: Solving the climate problem for the next 50 years with current technology' S. Pascala, R. Socolow, Science vol. 305 Aug. 13 (2004) p968.
please post the details in the comments section, many thanks in advance.
