I just watched Lecture 13 where Greenhouse Effect is briefly being discussed. After I watched it, I found this explanation by Dr. Roy W. Spencer, which made it clear to me what Greenhouse Effect is, and also what is not.November 13, 2013 at 11:29 am #8274
Thank you Adrian Woods for the book list thread!November 28, 2013 at 5:45 am #11862
If I may add (to consolidate the booklist thread), I would like to recommend another book:
- “Silent Spring”, by Rachel Carson. I am currently reading it, but after I started this permaculture course the topics just seemed to have a whole new understanding and a lot in common. The book encompasses (so far I know) the deleteriuos effects of traditional agriculture (with chemical spraying) to the ecosystems. This book is also considered to be amongst the most influential works in sustainability science and policy.
By the way, the other two books that Larry recommended are:
- “Soil and Civilization”, by Edward Hyams
- “Collapse”, by Jared Diamond
For those who want to know more about sustainability (besides permaculture), for more tips of good books on this matter, see:
- “The Top 50 Sustainability Books”, by Wayne visser (University of Cambridge)
