Editorial Reviews

Review

“The history of science is filled with examples of individuals with new ideas being met by the current scientific establishment not with enthusiasm, but rather with disregard and sometimes, even ridicule, like Louis Agassiz with glaciation and Alfred Wegener with continental drift. This also applies very much to the book Dark Winter, by John Casey. This book represents a fascinating read, and the potential consequences outlines are no less than far ranging.”
—DR. OLE HUMLUM, Professor of Physical Geography, University of Oslo, Norway

"Dark Winter is an important contribution for understanding and facing the environmental challenge, in its multi-faceted and often disquieting manifestations. John Casey approaches problems like a true scientist, who follows Leonardo da Vinci and he also knows how to explain concepts in a form that anyone can understand."
—DR. GIOVANNI GREGORI, Theoretical Physicist, Italy

"Dark Winter is simply a great work! It throws new light into the climatic patterns of the Earth. John's concepts will help people better understand nature and the full story of what is behind our climate changes."
—DR. NATARAJAN VENKATANATHAN, Professor of Physics, SASTRA University, India

"The air is filled with lectures and rumors that our Earth is getting warm. The author of Dark Winter, John Casey has found evidence to the contrary. His work is quite a revelation that marks a step toward a new scientific civilization. This book adds a brilliant page to the history of science!"
—DR. FUMIO TSUNODA, Professor Emeritus of Geology, National Saitama University, Japan

Format: Hardcover
Former White House space program advisor and space shuttle engineer, John Casey hits it out if the park again with Dark Winter. In this book, he further discusses the coming Dalton Minimum (Little Ice Age) but he also details specific things we can do to best adapt to this. Of particular interest is fascinating material on the rise of volcano and earthquake activity both historically during the Maunder and Dalton minimums, but what is to come.

Casey's predictions speak for themselves. Go listen to his speeches before last year's "polar vortexes" hit the USA, freezing us into miserable ice cubes. This man knows what he is talking about, and even if you decide you don't like his politics, I have read everything from Michael Mann to Bill Nye all the way far right to David Archibald, and without a doubt, Casey provides a chillingly accurate yet hopeful, read. It's a not miss if you want to know why we are heading for cooling, with serious and soon evident consequences. Don't miss this. I have Cold Sun, and I loved reading Dark Winter. I hope he tours in my area as he is a great speaker too. No, I do not know him at all, just a big fan. Beware of the inevitable trolling. Some never like the messenger, even when he's repeatedly correct.

As the subtitle indicates, Casey predicts a 30-year cold spell, beginning very recently. If you live in North America anywhere east of the Rocky Mountains you probably saw enough winter last year to concede that he might have a point.

His calculations are based on solar cycles. A couple of years ago the publishers of the Olde Farmers Almanac stated for publication that their method of predicting weather is based on 11 and 22-year sunspot cycles, and has had essentially the same prediction method for more than 2 centuries. At that time the official weather office predictions were based on fluid mechanics. The original researchers on Chaos Theory showed conclusively that the fluid mechanics theory had an absolute maximum usefulness of 23 days. Beyond that time it is totally useless. The weather office claimed that the Farmers Almanac method was unscientific. I disagreed with that position on the basis that the two prediction methods should be judged on the accuracy of their results, not the horsepower of their computer sections.

About 20 years ago the Farmers Almanac was more accurate for weather more than about a week in the future. With advances in satellite technology this breakpoint may have been extended another few days.

Casey has done his homework. He is actually a scientist, not a politician, and every page of his book shows it. He proceeds in the scientific manner. His figures show, as do most similar researchers, that there are strong weather cycles of about 100 years and about 206 years. These strongly indicate a cold period ahead, with the coldest part in about 2030. He quotes figures from other researchers. Most of these are in general agreement. I note that he quotes several Russian researchers.

The hypocracy of global warming has generated millions for some and caused the rest of us to struggle to find the truth. This author has presented a good case for climate change. Much of what he has stated was published by Smithsonian in
a book titled " Nature On A Rampage"' in 1994 .Casey gives us the missing pieces between this book on climate change and "WHY". Casey does a great job of covering a difficult subject. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to know the truth about climate change.

At 75 years old, I've learned a lot of things, from a lot of good people that later turns out to be dead wrong. So when someone tells me with absolute certainly what the effects of our carbon wastes will be I am turned off. Jim Casey says carbon, working alone in the atmosphere, might well warm the planet a fraction of a degree over the next decade but as always, there are many other factors working in other and often opposite directions. The cycles of the sun could have the effect of cooling (or warming) the earth sooner and to a far greater degree than anything man is likely to do. I don't know that Casey is right or wrong but I believe open minded people should read this book and add it's wisdom to what you have all ready learned. In doing so you can come to your own conclusions based on a broader range of information. You may well conclude that those telling you so absolutely what is happening may have agendas of their own to push. In short - READ THE BOOK!

This is a good read for anybody interested in the AGW (man-made global warming) debate. Casey makes some very good points regarding solar cycles and the effects on global temperature historically. He makes an excellent warning of the potential for wide spread starvation across the U.S. and probably world. This he explains will be mostly due to the centralization of the U.S food system.

The downside of the book, it's primarily composed of newspaper articles his organization has published. This information would be more effectively portrayed as a long magazine article. Excellent information, but too much filler.
