for those whose attention span is limited we have here a book that explains in 1/5 the number of words of what you need to know about climate change, yet he manages to explain several factors ( variance in the output of our sun, the Milankovitch cycles for example) that neither the popular media nor politicians never talk about (likely because of their ignorance of them)
