Earth's Energy Imbalance and Implications
by J. Hansen, M. Sato, P. Kharecha, K. von Schuckmann
Publisher: arXiv 2011
Number of pages: 52
Improving observations of ocean temperature confirm that Earth is absorbing more energy from the sun than it is radiating to space as heat, even during the recent solar minimum. The inferred planetary energy imbalance provides fundamental verification of the dominant role of the human-made greenhouse effect in driving global climate change.

The book brings to life the world's largest geological research program, which has been drilling over many decades at many locations below the ocean floor to recover cores of sediment. Study of these materials helps us understand how the Earth works.
