From the Author
I wrote Climate Confusion for several reasons. In contrast to other works, I wanted it to be an entertaining and easily understood primer on how weather and climate works, showing why manmade global warming is unlikely to be a serious problem for humanity. Furthermore, I wanted to explore the political, philosophical, and religious underpinnings of beliefs in catastrophic global warming, helping the reader to better appreciate why scientific research in this area has become tainted and untrustworthy. Finally, and possibly most importantly, by using basic economic concepts I wanted to counter currently proposed policy "solutions" to global warming that will have devastating effects on the world's poor.

The author's approach is easygoing and relaxed enough to help the reader to realize that climate change is not our enemy. It is political panderers. He describes the natural (global) processes that have been going on for centuries without any help from us and makes it all almost understandable. The exclusion is the agenda driven person who probably won't read this book. In any case, it (the weather in our beautiful earth) is explained so that even a casual reader can understand it. And the author confronts the various issues one at a time and lets us laugh at the confusion even as we gain a greater understanding of what is going on.
Prof. Spencer is a real scientist, unlike the computer modellers, self-styled environmentalists and fraudulent politicians. His book shines some light on a subject of which even the true experts know only a part.
