A week-long series of articles for IssueHawk.com collected as one longform essay. If you have not researched climate change before, or if you have and aren't sure who or what to believe, this is for you.

It's filled with facts, but presented in an fast-paced and entertaining narrative. The author links to his sources throughout the text, so you can delve deeper into any of the topics covered and hear it straight from the experts themselves!
