People have become motivated to explore the topic of Anthropogenic Global Warming for many reasons, sometimes starting from a passing interest, as in my case. It intrigued me in about 2007 to find that the UK was proposing to create an act of parliament entitled the ‘Climate Change Act’. Anyone with a background in technology and the numerate sciences, might take this Act could to mean that it was something to provide extra funds and preparedness for what we had already experienced by way of climate effects. The consequences of cold winters, flooding, low rainfall, coastal erosion, had been long understood and mainly been countered by experience. Whilst there were hazards from the UK climate, surely very little would be required to improve on protection?
