The first 6 chapters deal with standard GW topics. In Chapter 1 I define "our environment". Chapter 2 quantifies world energy use in the 20th and 21st centuries. Chapters 3, 4, and 5 relate to energy required in heating the Earth's atmosphere, water, and to melt all the planet's ice, respectively. Chapter 6 covers sea level rise as ice melts.(Final level and time to reach it)
Chapter 7 diverges from ordinary GW topics. There I estimate the energy stored in the Earth's 2 metal cores, 1 solid and 1 liquid.
Furthermore, in the lower mantel is stored more than in the 2 metal cores, and in the upper mantel there is a similar amount. This means that more than 2/3 of the internal heat is stored in the mantels. Its thermal interaction with the surface is very significant.
In Chapters 8, 9, and 10 I present a different theory of global warming incorporating Earth's interior energy. In Chapter 8 there is a 400,000-year graph showing climate history as it pertains to CO2 (carbon dioxide) concentration and temperature. The new theory is strongly supported by the close connection between the two, especially during GW. Chapter 9 shows a massive increase in worldwide flooding over the last 22 years. Chapter 10 discusses more aspects of the graphs presented in chapter 7. It connects flood data of Chapter 9 with the new theory.
Chapter 11 compares climatic numbers with very large numbers in common use. Chapter 12 addresses climate control. Chapter 13 covers some odds and ends not yet discussed, but that may be among people's concerns. Some very different ways of looking at GW concepts are stated. Chapter 14 is the conclusion, which briefly summarizes the new theory. It offers a solution to reduce greatly or stop our contribution to global warming.

About the Author

Mr. George Sourlis attended Purdue University from 1960 through 1964 when he received his BS. He holds a double major in physics and math. In 1965 he entered the Master degree program at the University of Arkansas majoring in physics. After 2 years of course and thesis work, he took a position teaching physics at Drury College in Springfield, Missouri in 1967 112 miles from the U. of A. During his teaching there he commuted on weekends and spent his summers at the U. of A. finishing his thesis work. In 1969 with that completed he had earned an M.S. in physics. In December of 1969 he left academic work to find something doing research. He was hired to work in the Applied Research Department at Videojet Systems Inc., a division of the A.B. Dick Company at that time. In his 14 years there he studied and help develop a continuous-jet industrial ink jet marking machine, which is now used world wide to bar code mail and date code food and beverage product containers. The public sees these codes daily on their U.S. mail, bottoms of beverage cans, and on other grocery products. They are printed in a dot matrix format as bar codes or alpha-numerics During his time doing applied research as a physicist for Videojet Systems, Inc. he patented 1 item and developed 1 proprietary process. He is an expert in the process of continuous-jet ink jet printing. The company changed hands in the early 1980s, and in 1987 he left to start his own company in an unrelated field. He retired in 2002.
