Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

Climate change is arguably the most important and most controversial environmental science issue of our time. The debate over its causes continues in the scientific community and in the media without true consensus about the role of greenhouse gas emissions as a contributing factor.

Evidence-Based Climate Science: Data opposing CO2 emissions as the primary source of global warming objectively gathers and analyzes a vast amount of scientific data from experts in meteorology, geology, atmospheric physics, solar physics, geophysics, climatology, and computer modeling. It examines patterns of past climate changes, influences of changes in ocean temperatures, the effects of solar variation, and the effect of CO2 to clearly present counter-global warming evidence not embraced by proponents of CO2.

Key features:

  • Authored by the world's leading climate scientists, each with more than 25 years of experience in the field
  • Offers an unbiased analysis of scientific data-readers can see for themselves the evidence for the amount and timing of global temperature changes
  • Includes extensive analysis of the physics of CO2 as a greenhouse gas and its role in global warming
  • Provides comprehensive citations, references, and bibliography
  • Presents adaptation strategies as alternative reactions to greenhouse gas emission reductions

I've had enough of the wild forecasting, such as several feet of ocean rise. I've had enough of so-called scientists cheating on their data to predict dire consequences. See the real graphs in this book. See the proof that the 1930's were the hottest on record in the last 100 years, not recent years. What does "global warming" mean to the people that still believe it? Spending lots of money to create programs that will tell you what choices you'll be allowed to make on where you'll live, what transportation you'll use, and other choices that government has no business in.
What sense does it make that any compound expressed in parts per million has a major affect on our atmosphere?
What's the real reason we have climate trends, both ups and downs over several decades? Read this book and find out.

Format: Hardcover
It reveals ( in great depth ) that global warming and/or climate change [ whatever you want to call it ] may not be caused primarily by man made co2 emissions. So just to be clear, this is not a "skeptical" book in the sense it aims to illustrate facts and ask common sense questions, nor is it pushing any agenda. Its factual and simply challenges the assumption that CO2 is the primary driver for climate change. It shows evidence in many time scales and unlike pro-AGW or overtly skeptical propoganda , I can find no evidence of obvious cherry picking. Its not as comprehensive in some areas as I would have liked and some important observations of current climate change are not addressed enough or at all , but on the whole this book delivers a solid message. That assumptions are just that, not evidence or proof. Great read for AGW religious with an open-ish mind, neutrals , and skeptics. Pricey but worth it, very content heavy and easy to follow if you are educated to a fairly good high school standard in sciences and maths and understand some entry level advanced statistics, if you don't you can soon swot up on that to make better progress with this book. If people like Al Gore read this book, then he like others would make fools of themselves less often. Some basic evidence in the book blows away the myth that hurricances are more common, more powerful and are effected by warming. The evidence actually points to the opposite being true. Just one example of how the book corrects false assumptions and allows the reader to rethink the scenarios. As neither AGW religious nor "skeptic", I found this book perfect to inform and to leave more questions un-answered ! The science certainly is not settled.Read more ›

This book is one of the most completed and updated synthesis of the climate change debate.

It provides indeed a structured and factual piece of evidence that the very selective syntheses made by the UN-IPCC (International Panel for Climate Change) does not tell all the truth, and that their forecasts, based exclusively on computer simulations and not so realisitc socio-economic scenarios, are in obvious contradiction with several experimental evidences gathered by eminent specialists of different disciplines (oceanographs, archeo-geologists, astro-pysicists, measuremnt specialists, etc.)

Not bad coverage.
A bit heavy for the lay-person,but an interesting study.
The writer tends to reach into as yet unknown areas of possible causes of Climate Change.
Still - all possibilities need to be dealt with. And the reader can accept or reject the writer's hypothesis.
A good contribution to a complex science.
