2 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 132 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This video sets aside doomsday alarmism and political axe-grinding to look at the science behind the history of climate change on earth.

Dr. Willie Soon of the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics provides an easy-to follow review of current climate science, which suggests that the sun's irregular patterns and other natural forces are the major sources of climate change
