Global warming

I have not read about philosophy for a long time. I remember reading about ethics. The question was posed as to whether an act is good, if the act was not done for a good reason. I thought I would read about "global warming", partly because of the future of the planet, but mostly because I was worried about the future of science after climategate.

I have read "Global warming -- a very short introduction" by Mark Maslin. This gave a good overview of the issues. I now know a little bit more about "hockey sticks" and things.
