Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

If there is to be any reasoned public discussion about climate change, we need to familiarize ourselves with diverse points of view. Bell, a professor of space architecture at the University of Houston, presents a highly critical deconstruction of mainstream findings about the causes and consequences of global warming. After scrutinizing an array of international scientific studies, he concludes that scientists, including those at the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, who are tracking a rise in global temperatures and theorizing about dire repercussions are using questionable methodologies (he explicates problems with computer modeling) and flawed data, and taking alarmist positions with an unscientific agenda. A featured Tea Party speaker, Bell also argues that governmental studies of global warming are all about funneling money to special-interest groups. If only Bell didn’t pepper every page with vitriolic commentary and snipe at Al Gore, thus expressing his bias just as he accuses others of doing, his book would provide food for thought in the Bjorn Lomborg vein (Cool It, 2007). For public libraries seeking thorough coverage of a hot-button subject. --Donna Seaman

Format: Hardcover
I have read several books on Climate Change and Global Warming and have been trying to really find out the truth for myself since I first saw Gore's movie. I have been frustrated that people on both sides of the issue seem filled with emotion and misinformation. There are careers on the line plus industries and government agencies with a lot to gain or lose.

This book has put the nails in the coffin for me. I now feel secure in the knowledge that the science is NOT settled as Al Gore and his followers keep saying. Any possible dangers are overblown, the models are faulty and our climate future is not really known or certain. Man's part in any possible global warming is also very uncertain and unproven. The solutions put forth by the climate change alarmists are not very helpful even if their alarming premises were true, which they aren't.

The book is a must read for anyone who has the slightest interest in our climate and the environment.

I consider myself an environmentalist, but we have plenty of other issues to pay attention to and solve rather than chasing the red herring of climate change.

I am so glad I got this book. I have the Kindle version. It gives details of how the Global Warming phenomena got its start, and what keeps it going. The author details the information and gives direct quotations along with the data. It is disgusting to see how the world has been manipulated by so few in order to generate a "crisis" where none really exists. This should be required reading everywhere thoughtful people exist.

1- and 2-star reviewers cite "...lack of science..." for this book, but it is the BOOK and Bell that actually cite science you can LOOK UP and VERIFY. Chances are high (at least 4 stars) that the 1-2 star people either work for "environmentalist" (another term killed by the left) organizations, or are people who foolishly believed the liberal drivel shoveled at them by professors about as "objective" and "honest" as the Climategate liars and Al Gore. Besides diminishing the important of reading, writing, and arithmetic in public schools, the left really went after the elimination of critical thinking skills, which, at one time, included a strong common sense component. The latter - if still practiced by our young and naive "college students" (quality is diminished) - would have made the "global warming" fraud obvious from the beginning...that it is still floating around out there is a tribute to the damage done to students by arrogant, politically-motivated teachers and professors. It is on them that the huge blame will fall for the utter descent of our education system into mediocrity, closing in on irrelevance. Apparently, the country's only hope is to divide into two autonomous regions, one in which the education (and other departments) will be removed as obstacles to spiritual, academic, and economic growth, and the other can live its subjective, socialist paradise run by nimrods like Gore, Obama, Sebelius, Chu, and Holder. Breaks one's heart to see America having to transform in such a way, but better one real America half the size, than a whole America ruined by lefties.

Format: Hardcover
This is an extremely well-written book disputing the validity of the mainstream-accepted idea of human-caused global warming. It is well-researched, and makes a very strong case for an outlook that is contrary to most of what you might hear on the subject. While the author is occasionally a tad snarky with regard to those on the other side of the issue, he is nowhere near as uncivil as they gnerally are in regard to anyone disputing their accepted wisdom, nor does he sound as irrational as many people on his side of the issue do.

I am nowhere near the scientist it would take to be able to definitively determine whether his claims are in fact accurate, or whether those who take the more mainstream approach have the truth on their side.I confess to bias in Bell's favor: I WANT to believe what he says, because I expect that if the doomsayers are correct, we are faced with two choices. Either we will cause a catastrophic climate change, or our entire civilization will collapse. Neither of these choices are acceptable, and picking between them is a damned-if-you-do, damned-if-you-don't alternative that I truly hope that we are not faced with. But whether Bell is right or not, one thing is certain: if you want to read a rational, well-balanced and researched statement of the argument against human-caused climate change, even if just to acquaint yourself with the arguments that need to be refuted, you'd be hard-pressed to find a better example than this book.

Obviously this is a controversial topic, and the author hits the nail on the head when he likens the belief in man-made global warming to a religion. One only has to look at the reviews. They are all 5 stars or all zeros...lol. Pretty much like reading a discourse between atheists and religionists. No middle ground.

I am a scientist of som 32 years working experience in both oil and gas and in protecting the environment. No its not a contradiction. My years as an enviromental consultant taught me that money drives everything. I made the distinction between an enviromentalist and and environmental scientist. Environmentalists are idealistic kids, immature adults, and lawyers. Somebody is making money at the Sierra Club and Green Peace, and it isn't the first two. Something similar goes on in the Environmental Science industry. The scientists who are trusted to study it for the colleges and government depend on their findings for their livelihood. Conflict of interest? You bet. Climategate as shown by the author was rooted in corruption fueled by this conflict of interest. Add to it the left leaning political view of the same institutions and you have a double whammy.

As a scientist who specialized in earth history and who took his share of climate and meteorology courses, my degree is an MS in Atmospheric and Earth Science with a concentration in Geology, none of this man made global warming crap has ever rung true to me. I flew in the face of everything I learned and knew about earth history.
The shear magnitude of the systems involved, the uncertainty of the measurements, everything I know about the scientific method told me it was nonesense.
