We are not alone in the world. Others have taken up similar challenges.
There are literally hundreds of references now on the subject of climate change (aka global warming),
starting from long before The Inconvenient Truth and even the Rio Conference. The trick is sorting
out the reality from the spuming of the disinformation machine. My caution to you is, be skeptical, seek
truth and be suspicious of those who gain from the continued use of fossil fuels, and especially those
who hide their connections to fossil fuels.

If you are looking for additional items related to climate change and mitigation spanning
a period of years, you could go through (or search) the archives from these email distribution lists.
The Sustainable Organizations Biofuel List (2000-2017)
(2016-present) named in honour of Keith Addison
(This list is still active, so you can subscribe if you wish. However, I recommend viewing the archives
for a bit before deciding if you are prepared for the content on a (near) daily basis. Generally a mix of
calling out climate change hypocrisy, what needs to be done, and stories of the shift to sustainable (energy)
practices and the people actually doing it.)
If you need a thoroughly depressing lens to focus on the reality and future consequences of catastrophic
climate change, spend some time at Nature Bats Last. Is he right?
Read and make up your own mind. However, I do agree with his leading statement: "Passionately pursue a life of excellence."
If you are still under the impression there is a future for hydrogen as fuel, please read
The Emperor's New Hydrogen Economy
for a good review of the topic. Published in 2006, it (sadly)
remains very current as we have not moved forward much on our energy behaviour in the past thirty years,
let alone in the past decade. The
ebook version is just US$6.
[Disclosure: I wrote this book, so I think it's pretty good and worth the read. However, some unbiased
people also think so, so it might be worth the investment of money and time. It even won a couple of awards.
Also, the several cents or dollars a year I get from the royalties after the US IRS finishes with all its
withholdings for non-residents goes to a good cause - paying for part of a
meal for the author.]
If you really want to go diving into older documents,
the Climate Files (tends to focus on Royal Dutch Shell, but does cover a broad range) is an interesting place
to spend a few hours.
This 2017 document titled The Climate Emergency by
John Scales Avery has a trove of references while providing a brief survey of the topic of climate change (in just 295 pages).
In 2010, the U.S. Congress looked at the topic, and released a 220 page report titled
A Rational Discussion of
Climate Change: The Science, The Evidence, The Response
