Science of Climate Change Website: If you need to gem up on the science behind climate change this is the place to do it! Written by the government’s Chief Scientific Advisor, Sir John Beddington, it provides comprehensive and accessible information on the science of climate change and compelling evidence of human drivers and the nature and degree of uncertainties. NB: this website has been archived by the government, but you can still read it on the National Archive website by clicking on the above link and it's still very pertinent information.
