Format: Paperback
The author is knowledgeable about his area of expertise; satellite temperature data and the processes that are driving the normal (natural) fluctuations in global temperature. He describes how the traditional means of measuring global temperature with ground stations has been flawed (likely intentionally) and demonstrates how the satellite temperature data record fits the well known natural variability and occillations much better. An honest and successful attempt to let the pure science and unadulterated temperature data speak for us to give us a true sense of the recent global temperatures. Clearly, when politicians and big money get too involved with science it can morph into pseudo-science and become untrustworthy. The author rises above the fray to present us a thoughtful and well-reasoned book worth reading.

The author has published in book form, what is apparently essentially a research paper that he wrote earlier that was rejected by both Science and Nature journals. It should be pointed out that both of these journals are firmly in the anthropogenic global warming camp, and research that does not support that view would usually be rejected by their editors.

The author has reviewed the satellite temperature data, accurate to +/- 0.03 degrees Celsius, in itself far more accurate than ground based thermometers, but the interesting thing he found was that the satellite data show no warming trend from 1978 to 2008, only an oscillation of temperature, cooling and warming, of 0.4 to 0.5 degrees, with a period of 3-5 years. The only exception was 1997 to 1999, which showed significant warming. The author suggests this was due to the appearance of a Super El Nino. He states that, except for that brief warming, the global temperature follows the normal El Nino Southern Oscillation (ENSO) period and pattern, and that it is ENSO that determines the climate change, not CO2. He states that if there is no warming trend, then rising CO2 is not causing any warming.

It is a short, well-written paper, illustrated with easily read charts and satellite images. I believe this book adds in no small measure to the body of research.

Excellent book and a must read for all concerned and interested in the subject of Climate Warming. I would add that the only question that matters in the Climate discussion is WHETHER ADDING MORE CO2 TO THE ATMOSPHERE WILL MAKE THE WORLD MUCH WARMER: WHAT EVIDENCE IS THERE THAT CO2 FORCES TEMPERATURES UP FURTHER? Everything hinges on this one question. If carbon dioxide is not a significant cause, then carbon sequestration, cap-and trade, emissions trading, and Kyoto agreement are a waste of time and money. All of them divert resources away from things that matter - like finding a cure for cancer, feeding the starving, etc.

The Only 4 Points that Matter

1. THE GREENHOUSE SIGNATURE IS MISSING. Weather balloons have scanned the skies for years but can find NO SIGN of the telltale "hot-spot" warming pattern that greenhouse gases would leave. There's not even a hint.
2. THE STRONGEST EVIDENCE WAS THE ICE CORES, BUT NEWER, MORE DETAILED, DATA TURNED THE THEORY INSIDE OUT. Instead of carbon pushing up temperatures, for the last half-a-million years temperatures have gone up BEFORE carbon dioxide levels. On average 800 years before. This totally threw what we thought was cause-and effect out the window.
3. TEMPERATURES ARE NOT RISING. Satellites circling the planet twice a day show that the world has not warmed since 2001. How many more years of NO global warming will it take? While temperatures have benefit, CO2 has been rising, BUT something else has changed the tread. The computer models don't know what it is.
4. CARBON DIOXIDE IS ALREADY DOING ALMOST ALL THE WARMING IT CAN DO. Adding twice the CO2 doesn't make twice the difference. The first CO2 molecules matter a lot, but extra ones have less and less effect.
