Book cover: Earth's Energy Imbalance and ImplicationsEarth's Energy Imbalance and Implications
by - arXiv ,
Observations of ocean temperature confirm that Earth is absorbing more energy from the sun than it is radiating to space as heat. The energy imbalance provides verification of the dominant role of the human-made greenhouse effect in climate change.
