Regarded as the springboard to raise awareness about global warming, Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth” brings to bear research conducted by top climatologists and other scientists to explain global warming using information graphics and other evidence to document the pace and scope of the phenomenon. Usually cited as the book responsible bringing the country’s attention to this issue, “An Inconvenient Truth” is one of the save-the-climate movement’s early calls to action.

More recently Brian C. Black and Gary J Weisel have published “Global Warming,” an omnibus on global warming and climate change. Covering such topics as the history of global warming research and the geopolitics and ethics of studying climate change, “Global Warming” updates and expands on Gore’s work. Likewise, Stephen H. Schneider’s “Science as a Contact Sport: Inside the Battle to Save Earth's Climate” proposes solutions for developing practical policies to lessen the effects of greenhouse gases and create more green jobs.
