Changes in climate are driven by natural and human-induced perturbations of the Earth s energy balance. These climate drivers or "forcings" include variations in greenhouse gases, aerosols, land use, and the amount of energy Earth receives from the Sun. Although climate throughout Earth s history has varied from "snowball" conditions with global ice cover to "hothouse" conditions when glaciers all......
