Hi. My sister and I co-wrote 'The Answers to Global Warming Scepticism' published by Community Environment Network (2010) which is a non-technical summary based on our (late) father's (Dr Frederick Bell)research 'The Scientific Basis for Scepticism about Global Warming'. The publication is very suitable for school students and is available free as an e-resource for educational purposes. You may view and download the ebook at http://www.climatechangematters.net.au/documents/answers%20_to%20_scepticism.pdf
Could you please let me know if this ebook is something that you would like to include in SCIS?
