Editorial Reviews

Review

"An amusing and colorful, yet science-based, look at mankind's obsession with global warming." --Publishers Weekly

"Goreham, the antidote for Gore!" --Doug Giles, Syndicated Radio Host

"It's all here. Replete with great graphics and much humor, Steve Goreham reveals the mountain of failed eco-predictions, rank green hypocrisies and outright fraud that currently masquerades in the guise of modern environmentalism and 'climate science'... The Mad, Mad, Mad World of Climatism is an easy-to-read, easy-to-understand expose of all the key facts behind the dirty 'green' politics of the greatest pseudo-science racket of our age." --Peter Glover, author, journalist, and International Associate Editor, Energy Tribune

"This is the first book written to make you laugh at the absurdity of man-made global warming—that is, until it makes you cry. If 250 pages of facts are too much, you can simply read the amusing cartoons and quotes on every page to fully understand how the world has been misled." --Jay Lehr, PhD, Science Director, The Heartland Institute

"I am extremely impressed with this work, easily the best of its kind I have ever read... an authoritative, well-referenced, but easy-to-understand summary of the climate scare and its dire implications for society and the environment." --Tom Harris, Executive Director, International Climate Science Coalition

"Interesting, accurate, compellingly readable, and directly relevant to one of today's most important political debates. What more needs to be said beyond, 'Buy this fascinating book!'" --Robert Carter, Australian Marine Geologist and Environmental Scientist

"Steve's new book is exactly what I hoped would be published. It makes climate science understandable to everyone. Finally, some common sense, presented in a way to inform, not to deceive." --Burt Rutan, Aerospace Engineer, Innovator, Entrepreneur

"Steve Goreham's insightful and readable analysis of the ideology of Climatism and its socialistic goals is an important addition to public understanding of both the facts and the critical importance of making the right decisions for America." --Harrison H. Schmitt, PhD, Geologist, former Senator and Apollo 17 Astronaut

"Goreham's book is an excellent, readable, comprehensive, and indispensable education for everyone. It should be required reading in all schools, universities, statehouses and Congress." --Edwin Berry, PhD, Physicist and Meteorologist

"Steve Goreham has provided the science, the motivations, and the examples of deceit that surround the man-made warming hypothesis. He leaves no excuse for the public and the policy makers to prolong the misguided effort to spend trillions of dollars trying to reduce the insignificant effect of CO2 on global climate change." --Leighton Steward, Geologist, Author, and Environmentalist

About the Author

Steve Goreham is executive director of the Climate Science Coalition of America, a speaker and author on environmental issues, a former engineer and business executive, and a father of three.

Mr Goreham: please write another book on this contentious issue, i.e., an update, especially to defeat the lies of Naomi Klein and their ilk. Thanks!

A great read. Nothing new here, but he's pulled together a lot of threads and woven them into a coherent readable debunking of the United Nations climate scam. This should be on every student's bookshelf as an effective antidote to the brainwashing going on in schools today.

can't say enough about the dedicated research and the immense debunking of the current religion of climatism that the leftist, socialist pagans are spoon-feeding the press and this current administration. What a money pit is the lie of the left. Al Gore is just one of a huge number of bloated boobs on the side of the money-changers....they win and American enterprise loses.

Reading the reviews is great fun, particularly the attacks on the book and its author based on his association with the Heartland Institute. In part those are entertaining because they so blatantly try to substitute various versions of the Ad Hominem fallacy for substantive argument, combined with equally blatant and fallacious Arguments from Authority. It's all especially funny when the critic admits that he has read only a small portion of the book and couldn't even find the end notes. What comes across most clearly is that some of these folks are not used to being challenged and having to defend their own position on its merits.

But what's truly hilarious is to see folks from the science establishment pretending not to have their own financial and other interests at stake in this debate. It's too funny! Climate change science is a taxpayer-funded mini-industry: Lots of research institutes -- does the green energy industry help fund those? -- that provide fat salaries and well-paid, high-status, high-visibility positions inside and outside of academia, endless paid-for conferences in fancy international locations with premium hotel and other accommodations, specialized journals to publish your articles and thus fatten the vita for academic promotions and pay increases, research contracts and grants by the boatload, invitations to sit on government panels and advisory boards, lucrative consultant posts, and on and on. The Earth- and Atmospheric Sciences never, ever had it so good.

The notion that climate scientists are an unbiased and disinterested source of commentary on a book like this is preposterous. All the Ad Hominem sputtering and Assertions from Authority are just another version of the panicked attempts to shut off debate with nonsense about "settled science.

excellent, detailed debunking of the global warming hysteria and outright hoax. Every politician needs to read this before sending us down the road to spend massive amounts of money to fix a non-problem.

This fine book has an overall rating of only 3 1/2 stars because the minions from the church of ManBearPig have come forth to silence the Deniers. It is interesting to note that a fair number of the book's critics have not bothered to read it, but are content to base their shrill reviews on a cursory skimming. I can picture their apoplectic rage, causing them to leave spittle on their monitor, as Sylvester The Cat might do while pounding out their self righteous critiques.

Now to the book. In the first part, Mr. Goreham introduces the many individuals and organizations that support the idea of AGW. He does this in a respectful way, without any "smirking", as some have suggested. After that, he proceeds to address every aspect of the debate, from A to Z, in a reasoned presentation of facts, that any first rate courtroom attorney would envy. Some have accused the author of not being a scientist. I believe that his MS in Electrical Engineering provide more than ample credentials in science, and its applications in the real world. His ability to understand the nuances of the scientific method in determining causal relationships far greater than that of ALGOR.

Readers may consider reading the last couple of pages of the book before starting at the beginning. These point out that many well meaning adherents of AGM are prompted by the "Precautionary Principle". Unfortunately, in a world with finite resources, and the many worthy needs clamoring for them; we cannot afford to spend untold sums on an unproven calamity.

I have loaned my copy of this very readable book to a friend who is a believer in AGW, with a request that he keep a writing tablet nearby, so that he might jot down any factual errors, or items that he disagrees with.

Too many critics and skeptics rely on extrapolation and models for their arguments. Do your own research on every topic and find the empirical data. This topic is very polarized and political. Anyone that says they have all the answers is extremely misguided. The climate (and weather) is an extremely complicated system. I compliment this book for presenting data and facts.

This book contains many scientific errors -- see the link below. However, don't take that article author's (Dr. John Abraham) word for it, rather do your own research to confirm or refute his explanations of the errors. However, be sure to look at nonpartisan scientific sources, NOT articles from the Heartland Institute.
