There are a lot of gems in this book from the standpoint of the reviewer who is just beginning to examine the scientific evidence both for and against man-made (anthropogenic) climate change. Each one of these however needs to be critically examined along with the supporting references that are quoted in the book. As such one should not expect a book of this length to contain the evidence that supports the claims that are made between its covers. Readers therefore who want to understand the arguments against (and for) anthropogenic climate change, and like the reviewer have a strong scientific background in areas not dealing with, both serving as a foundation for climate science, can expect to spend a considerable amount of time in obtaining this understanding.
There are no short-cuts in scientific understanding, and unfortunately there are those on both sides of the “debate” that do not even have even a rudimentary understanding of the fundamentals of physics or data analysis. How to deal with uncertainties in measurement data and how to deal with errors in simulation models are just two examples, and both of these are actively discussed in the book. An understanding of these fundamentals is absolutely crucial if one is to make claims on the role of humans in climate change or global warming.
It is fair to say that climate change is now political doctrine, and like most doctrines permits no deviation from its policies and edicts. It eschews (and fears) critical thinking, and puts emphasis on marketing and propaganda, rather than on experimentation and facts derived from careful analysis. For those with a sincere desire for the raw, naked truth behind climate change, and climate science in general, this book will hopefully be one of many others that will assist in fostering a healthy skepticism about the subject.
The contributions I read have one thing in common. All try to reach conclusions based on scientific method using both empirical evidence and theoretical foundations.
As for the global warming we are living in a period that some call the pause since temperature stop rising for the last several years.
