This page is part of an A-Level project on climate change. It served as a really useful project in uncovering what I believed and where I stood with regard to contemporary climate change. Though often this report is incoherent and a bit “half baked”, it scored well for the academic level that I was at the time and I believe it to be a useful resource. It helped me to understand that the anthropogenic portion of climate change is the unusual rate of change that sits atop these underlying drivers of climatic change that generally operate on much greater timescales. Respected institutions and legions of academics acknowledge the anthropogenic component to change and its significance for the future, as do I.

I have broken my project down in to the following sections:
