Customer Reviews

This book covers the "science" and politics of global warming, I mean, climate change.

Kudos to Brain for not falling for the leftist BS and for telling it like it is, much to their chagrin!

I have followed this issue for several years. It took me a couple of years before I came to the point of view that Sussman lays out here. Global warming is a deeply insidious expression of Marxism with the express agenda of de-development and global wealth redistribution. This is as anti-capitalist and un-American as it gets. Sussman lays out the major issues well, which basically amount to cherry picking of data and manipulating mathematical models to produce the desired results.

What was so hard in my journey here as an engineer was to see that such a large segment of the academic and scientific community has been corrupted into religiously advancing this theory. The incentive system of having government funding as the primary source where you get funding to advance the theory, but sit out in the cold if you don't buy in is in itself rather disturbing. Sussman didn't delve into this aspect, but it is partially covered in the book "SuperFreakonomics". I have yet to see any author take on the challenge of how to reform science funding. For the sake of the continued contribution of science to human prosperity, this challenge must be taken up.

My only real criticism of Sussman is that he is preaching to the choir. He doesn't do enough to bring people along who are where I was a couple of years ago -- skeptical, but not quite able to believe the extent of the corruption. In my own journey the writings of Freeman Dyson at Princeton, Richard Lindzen at MIT and the well known systems engineer Burt Rutan helped me a great deal.

Format: Hardcover
Sussman provides many very good, but also very quick 'snapshots' of the entire movie it would take to fully understand the scientific, economic, political, moral, etc. problems with the bases for harmful AGW. He highlights the fact he's won several awards for being a good TV personality, but doesn't make the fact he has a meteorology degree well known (I read this on a third party website). A lot of readers may not appreciate the fact that he goes into into a fair amount of history, political philosophy, and even a touch of theology in the first chapter. But, I do admit I was glad I read that portion thoroughly, since it does provide the reader with a more solid background/foundation on which to understand why he believes/says what he does.

Sussman is not afraid of letting you know what he thinks about certain people and ideas. Most of the time, this makes for good reading. On occasion, though, he could've toned things down a little (like calling Karl Marx a bast****). The text is well referenced, but there are the occasional exaggerations (300 mph jet streams? - rare, at best) and instances when more/better documentation would've been great - especially when he references his own interviews and refers to the climategate emails. Sussman is clearly writing about a topic he holds to be important, and it is this fervor which makes this book good. As much of the book is about his personal experiences (challenges, perhaps), he's encountered in both his professional and personal life since he's officially become a 'denier.' Very little of the science presented in this book was 'new' for me; that will be true for you as well, if you keep up to date on the topic. If you're looking for a peek into the makings of climategate and care about scientific integrity & ethics, however, this will be an excellent read. Enjoy.

Finally, a highly-trained professional meteorologist discloses the truth about the fraud that is man-made global warming.

Mr. Sussman names names and uncovers the vile deceptiveness that has both "educated" our children and provided a huge moneymaker for Gore, Obama and others who will profit from this hoax.

A must read. I'm buying several copies for presents.

Format: Hardcover
Purchasing the book on April 15th at the Pleasanton, CA Tea Party event, I've read the book, twice - and sat back to watch the non-intellectual food fight - here on Amazon and throughout the media. What I've come away with so far from the public discourse is at best disheartening.

Missed so far on these pages is a simple observation: of being that Mr. Sussman's research was not originally scientific - it was research for citable data from professional and academic sources that he analyzed and then commented on. Anyone who disagrees with Sussman has missed the point and indeed the science and method involved. Rather than challenge Sussman - 'warmers' need to debunk or argue to marginalize his sources.

When you mix political discourse with science - as Sussman has done - sparks tend to fly. Make no mistake - this book was deliberately released to stimulate the NEEDED debate over CAP-'n-Trade - the (people who currently run the) Federal Government's attempt to curtail the emission of CO2 by taxing its producers. Since corporations don't pay taxes - only collect them from their customers - the rationale behind this legislation should be wide open to further discussion - not shut down and most importantly - with China and India exempting themselves from the process - exactly what climatic gains will result? Sussman answers this - almost none. This aspect of the debate has been waiting for an answer from the 'warmers'.

Then there is Sussman's delving into his political associations, history, impetus and what he claims is the true agenda of the 'warmers'. There is no doubt in my mind that Sussman knew in advance exactly what his book would do. Here is where he gains, loses and draws vile from various special interest groups.
