Review

Greg s book is interesting, easy to read and understand and sums up the entire global warming debate. In the best traditions of the citizen soldier, he has taken the time to arm himself with the facts on this matter, and by doing so, makes it easier for everyone to do the same. I say as a citizen solider, because his love for his country is evident to me as a driving force behind this book. His search for the truth on this matter in this book is a journey any objective person of good will in this country should be willing to embark on. I couldn't put it down and hope everyone will use this to arm themselves with the facts. --Joe Bastardi, Senior Meteorologist AccuWeather.

Gregory has written a book that understands the science or more correctly the bad science. More important he then presents the entire issue from his strength of knowing and understanding the political and economic ramifications of the deception. He recognizes the threat to jobs and economies, but realizes that basing policy on false information is a more profound problem, that meaningful leadership must spring from truth and basic values. --Dr. Tim Ball, renowned Environmental Consultant and former Climatology Professor at the University of Winnipeg.

Greg's book does much to dispel the myth that issues like global warming are to help the people who can't speak for themselves. Greg goes a long way to explain how these lies suddenly become truths. The book is a great study in how the Left co-opts many issues, and specifically how they have made natural climate occurrence into nothing more than a money-grab and a farce. An interesting and must read! --Kevin Jackson, Political Pundit and Conservative Radio Show Host.

A serious book with well documented sources that made me laugh. Not at the content, but at the comedy of errors. It seems like weather is a constant in this world - constantly changing that is. Predictions come and go, and well, come and go. This helps to document the cyclic trend in the great debate between the ice age and the global warming - or the great meltdown. Well done Mr. Parker - You have given me a visual of 'Chicken Little' running around with the GWAs 'warning' the world of impending doom. I guess in a few years they will switch back to the Ice Age apocalypse. Enjoyed the book, Really!

Thomas Jefferson said "Information is the currency of democracy," and Greg
Parker's first venture into the publishing arena gives the reader a
substantial amount of currency for the greatest debate of our generation.
Parker's wit and charisma are evident as he breaks down this complex issue.
Written in simple language for the laymen it serves as a guide for
those seeking quick retort when facing irrational "Global Warming
Alarmists."

Former Vice President and self anointed prophet of the Global Warming
Alarmist movement, Al Gore famously stated in testimony before Congress "The
debate is over!" But after reading "Global Warming.... Really?" I believe
that Mr. Parker either didn't get that particular memo or he received it but
sarcastically proclaimed "Really!?!" In a refreshing style he tackles the
science and dispels many of the myths perpetuated by Al Gore and the
troglodytes who follow without question the dictates of those who wish to
reshape the American economy and disrupt the perceived evils of capitalism.
These Global Warming Alarmists hide behind junk science and fear tactics as
they attempt to radically change the world in one of the largest transfers
of wealth the world will have ever been witness to. Parker exposes the
faces of those working behind the scenes and the bold face lies they spin in
this highly informative book.

Parker details the timeline and traces this issue back to expose the many
faces and incarnations of a topic that resurrects and reinvents itself
generation after generation. Who can forget the looming "Ice Age" predicted
in the 70's?

Greg Parker, a Tea Party buffoon from New Braunfels, Texas with a degree in public policy vs. thousands of climatologists who have been studying these issues for years. Greg Parker, who essentially works for the oil and gas industry vs. academics whose primary interest is the pursuit of knowledge. Whom do I trust more on this issue? Admittedly, it's a tough call, but let's start at the beginning, shall we?

The forward to the book is written by one Timothy Ball, who, according to Parker, "holds a PhD in Climatology and is a renowned environmental consultant and former climatology professor at the University of Winnepeg. Dr. Ball employs his extensive background in climatology and other fields as an advisor to the International Climate Science Coalition." Wow, that's sound extremely impressive until one uses the google machine to learn that Ball's degree is actually in geography and that "during much of the years he was a professor at U. Winnipeg, he was a junior lecturer who rarely published, and then spent 8 years as a geography professor. His work does not show any evidence of research regarding climate and atmosphere and the few papers he has published concern other matters." Further, the "International Climate Science Coalition" is one of the shadowy climate change denier groups funded by people like the Koch brothers. In summary: the number of climatology papers published by Dr. Timothy Ball in peer-reviewed journals: 0. None. Zilch. It seems we're off to a rather bad start.

I could go on like this for almost as many pages as there are in Parker's book, but why bother? People like Tim Ball and Greg Parker get paid to pretend that climate change is a myth.

Easy to read, this book is well documented and shows that the earth has faced warming and cooling over its whole existence of time! The author points out the ramifications of this bad, junk science, and talks about how detrimental carbon trading and green jobs can be for the economy. The movement of man-made global warming leads back to greed, power, money, and control of human beings, and the author, Gregory Parker, does a great job showing this through his writings.
