For information on biogeochemical cycles: Any good advanced high school or introductory college ecology text. For example: Smith, R. L. (1996). Ecology and field biology. (5th ed.). New York: Harper Collins College Publishers.
For information on Earth's orbit, solar variability, or climate: Any good high school or introductory college earth science text. It is particularly fun to read texts written in the mid to late 1970s because the temperature had been level or even dropping for several decades and the idea of global warming is almost scoffed at in these texts. For example: Tarbuck, E. J. & Lutgens, F. K. (1979). Earth Science (2nd ed.). Columbus, OH: Merrill Publishing.
Science, Science News, and Nature magazines have many articles every year on issues related to global warming.
