    I'm going to move this to General Science, as it's not quite physics.

    Have you looked in your local library? There are usually some titles on the subject of weather. I'm not too sure geology is really involved, unless you are concerned with volcanic gasses.

    I'm not sure anyone has the root cause. The planet has gone through numerous warm and cold cycles. I don't recall anything convincing about what brought on the ice ages, or why things were able to warm up after so much ice formed.

    Actually one of the better explanations is our sun is actually a variable star, it is not as stable as we'd like to assume. If that is the case we are lucky it isn't worse.

    A good all round introduction is

    Atmosphere and Ocean - Our Fluid Environments
    By
    J G Harvey

    Oceanography
    By Summerhayes and Thorpe

    Is good on global warming, greenhouse effect, and climate change
