For those who often feel frustrated trying to articulate the reality of climate change and the scientific evidence, here are four articles that I think prove useful:

Scientific consensus: Earth’s climate is warming http://climate.nasa.gov/scientific-consensus/#.WEXT5S7qByE.twitter

 

Consensus on consensus: a synthesis of consensus estimates on human-caused global warming http://dx.doi.org/10.1088/1748-9326/11/4/048002

 

The pivotal role of perceived scientific consensus in acceptance of science http://go.nature.com/gszHdq

BBC News – Earth warming to climate tipping point, warns study http://www.bbc.com/news/science-environment-38146248

I have found them useful in terms of engaging folks in meaningful conversations. They will not prove useful in Twitter fights. I really think the third piece from Nature is critical in terms of hope. The article suggests that the more we speak truth to power, the more the public gets onside with science.
