Editorial Reviews

Review

This is a serious book that carefully examines the issues that have been used to create the current climate change/global warming crisis...I endorse Climatism for its easy-to-read, well-illustrated presentation of complex science. John Coleman, Meteorologist and Founder of the Weather Channel

If you care about the 21st century society, you must read this book. In my 55-year career as a scientist I have written over 1,000 book reviews for various journals. No book has pleased me more than Climatism! by Steve Goreham. Jay Lehr, Ph.D., Science Director, The Heartland Institute

Climatism is a myth-buster of a book. If you are interested in climate, carbon or energy, you need this common-sense book on your reference shelf, especially if you are a politician, a journalist, a teacher or a parent. Steve Goreham identifies the origins, symptoms and cures for the societal sickness of Climatism. His book is comprehensive, interesting, logical, factual and well-referenced. He also has a marvellous collection of quotes. You will enjoy reading it. Viv Forbes, Chairman, The Carbon Sense Coalition

Before your future disappears under piles of climate model print-outs and fraudulent carbon credits, read Steve Goreham s new book Climatism! Dennis Avery, Director, Center for Global Food Issues, Hudson Institute and Author

In the entertaining and factual book Climatism, Steve Goreham shows that this newest ism has precious little clothing of science, but is driven by an amazing collection of other motives. The book recounts the history of Climatism, from its carefully orchestrated beginnings by people with agendas that went well beyond climate control to the current sound and fury of the Copenhagen climate summit and the embarrassment over the Climategate computer files. William Happer, Cyrus Fogg Bracket Professor of Physics, Princeton University

Goreham covers the science, the politics, the history, and the consequences if we get things wrong...I'm agog at how much research he must have done to pull together so many strands. I'll be keeping this book close by. It's one heck of a resource. Joanne Nova, Australian Speaker, TV-Host, and Author

Climatism, written with eloquence and simple-to-understand language to explain complex concepts, is a must-read to understand the interplay between the demagoguery of alarmist climate change and the real dangers that it entails in the lifestyle we enjoy. Steve Goreham has done a masterful job to present a very coherent and convincing book on perhaps the most crucial social, political and economic issue of the 21st century. Professor Michael J. Economides, University of Houston, Editor-in-Chief Energy Tribune

Climatism! A real cool book that quenches the fire of the mythical dragon of global warming with the twinkle of real science. Professor David Bellamy, Ph.D., British Botanist, Author, Broadcaster, and Environmentalist

I found the book Climatism! by Steve Goreham so facinating I could hardly stop reading. Don Bongaards, Author and Retired Westinghouse Engineering Manager

Climatism! is the ideal foundation for serious non-scientists about understanding the science, politics and public policy of climate change in the world today. Dan Miller, Publisher/Executive Vice President, The Heartland Institute

Climatism! achieves the right balance of being readable and a credible reference source. David Archibald, Australian Climate Scientist

Format: Hardcover
If you care about twenty-first century society, you must read Steve Goreham's new book, Climatism. In my 55-year career as a scientist I have written more than 1,000 book reviews for various journals. No book has pleased me more than this one.

Unmasking a Dangerous System

After The Heartland Institute's Third International Conference on Climate Change in March 2009, Goreham decided to summarize, between the covers of a single book, everything everyone should know on this topic. In 390 pages of narrative, including 133 outstanding charts and illustrations plus 1,134 references from countless articles, he has succeeded.

Goreham has performed a service for the uncommitted citizen, which could one day lead to the unraveling of the new social order, religion, and political system Goreham calls climatism. While an ever-larger percentage of the public is beginning to recognize that man cannot and does not control the global climate, the public has no idea how thoroughly climatism has infiltrated the seats of world power.

Scientific Flaws

The first five chapters of the book are filled with persuasive science presented in such a readable manner that the average layman will easily grasp it. For instance, we often hear about the concepts of positive and negative climate feedback, but few people understand their importance. The author explains these concepts clearly and shows how the asserted positive feedbacks that cause most of the forecasted warming in alarmist computer models are not happening in the real world.

In a section titled "Garbage In, Garbage Out," Goreham explains:

"Model simulation results are not experimental data.

Mr. Steve Goreham has written a very interesting, readable, and useful compendium on the global warming hoax. The book is packed with information and documented with numerous references. There are three major sections in this book. The first section details and documents the false science behind the global warming hoax. Carbon dioxide does not cause global warming. Climate change is driven much more by the sun. And other factors such as the Pacific Decadal Oscillation influence earth's temperatures. The second section details the pseudo religious nature of the climate control movement and its tactics. The section documents the repressive tactics of the global warming proponents against scientists and others who dispute their beliefs. In essence anthropological global warming is not science but a demented system of religious beliefs. This sect is not interested in scientific truth but in power over the lives of others. The third section describes the warmist renewable energy solutions to the alleged problem of global warming. The sections makes very clear these warmist proposals would greatly raise energy costs and reduce living costs while having no effect on the climate of the earth. The cost increases have been confirmed by recent experience in Spain, the United States, and elsewhere.

All of the chapters are very useful and interesting. Of particular use is the chapter "Carbon Dioxide: Not Guilty". In this chapter Mr. Goreham points out that more carbon dioxide enables better plant growth. He also relates that carbon dioxide does not stay in the atmosphere for long due to Henry's Law in chemistry. Valid scientific studies places the average carbon dioxide lifetime in the atmosphere under fifteen years.

Format: Hardcover
This book is even more rubbish from Steve Goreham. For those who don't know, Steve is associated with the Heartland Institute. The Heartland Institute accepts money from businesses to perform advocacy work for, among other things, tobacco policy, hydraulic fracturing, and climate change. The Institute became well-known in the 1990's when it accepted money from Philip Morris to attack science linking secondhand smoke to human health risks. At present, they receive money from oil and energy companies to try and discredit the science behind climate change. This explains why Steve's facts and figures in this book are so distorted, misleading and, very often, downright lies.

And in case you didn't notice, most of the individuals who give Steve's book a 5-star rating are also associated with the Heartland Institute. Self promotion of their own books is a common strategy this group uses to make it look as if their materials have more credibility than they actually do. Many of these individuals have graduate degrees, and may look authoritative to the naive reader. But most of their degrees have nothing to do with climate science (for example, Steve has degrees in engineering and business). And none of them has ever published a study about climate change in any peer-reviewed, scientific journal. Just look them up on Google Scholar, and you'll quickly notice that folks who work for the Heartland Institute have no scientific credibility whatsoever.

For several years before I left teaching in the classroom, I would swim against the stream and tantalize my students with the notion that, just maybe, all the "leading" climate scientists were incorrect in their exaggerated claims that human activity was responsible for the acceleration of climate change (and far too many students were under the grossly exaggerated notion that humans were its actual cause, an idea I was hoping they were misunderstanding, rather than being fed, in other classes). Look to the sun, I would advise them. For the more astute students, who wanted to understand better and would seek me out on their own time, I would caution them that science has historically been politicized, and to follow the money, as it were, using all available info to come up with their own conclusions, based on what they knew about the scientific method and statistics, and how each could be used to tell three sides of the same story, depending on who was conducting the research, how the research was being funded, and how entities from carbon credit traders to oil companies to the "local" energy providers stood to benefit from these certain conclusions. Some of the sharper, or, if you will, more cynical, ones would remark about the intentionally emotional and provocative scenes from a particular academy award-winning documentary they were all sent to see one Earth Day, and challenged themselves and their friends to consider the machinations behind and repercussions of that film.Read more ›
