In this annex to The Ladybird Expert Guide to Climate Change we provide additional information, links to further information and references to the scientific literature.

Please note that for some of the scientific publications only the abstract is free to view. The links are provided as a sample of the relevant literature and are not meant as an exhaustive list or a comprehensive synthesis.

A number of the references are to the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), which is the international body for assessing the science related to climate change. It produces regular assessment reports, written by hundreds of leading scientists, which summarise the published literature.

Every effort has been made to ensure the accuracy of the information presented here, however if any omission or error has been made please contact us at

This page will be updated as new evidence becomes available.
