Science of Climate?, The

Synopsis
Examines global warming, explaining the nature of the main elements of the climate system and looking at the range of evidence which seems to suggest that climate is changing. Shows that recent changes in climate are negligible compared to changes over longer timescales of thousands or millions of years. Looks at some of the natural causes of climate change and shows that recent changes, however small, are significant and are almost certainly caused by human activity.

Notes
NB. As of May 2016 Open University Worldwide are no longer distributing DVDs. They have posted this message on their website: ‘Unfortunately Open University Worldwide Limited has decided that product sales are no longer viable given the reduced funding to Higher Education institutions and diminishing demand for the products we have traditionally stocked. At present the Open University Students Association (OUSA) will continue to sell the "Good Study Guide", and we are in discussion with other possible distributors to continue to make The Open University’s products available for purchase. As soon as we have any information on other channels of distribution we will update this notice’. Some products are still available via second hand dealers on Amazon.co.uk
