The Real Global Warming Disaster: Is the Obsession with 'Climate Change' Turning Out to Be the Most Costly Scientific Blunder in History? Audible – Unabridged

Yet the book has its flaws too. It has a key misprint: a 7.7 degrees C temperature drop, for 0.7 degrees C. Don't publishers employ proof-readers any more? Carelessly, Booker writes that 1934 was the world's warmest year, when the research he cites clearly referred to the USA's warmest year.
The recent warming is not unprecedented. The Holocene Maximum of 7000-3000 BC, the Roman Warming of 200BC-540AD, the Medieval Warming of 900-1300 were all warmer than now, yet the planet survived.
The Met Office's Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research rejected Freedom of Information requests for data on the weather stations it used. Professor Phil Jones (now head of the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia) wrote in 1990 that its stations had 'few, if any changes in instrumentation, location or observation times'. He based this statement on a US Department of Energy report on just 35 of the 84 stations, which had found that fully half of the 35 had been moved!
The Met Office consistently predicts more warming than actually happens. For example, using the same computer model that gave the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change its forecasts for 2100, the Met Office forecast that 2007 would be the world's 'warmest year on record', with Britain 'set to enjoy another sizzling summer', that 2008 would be one of the 'top ten warmest years' ever, that 2009 would be one of the 'five warmest years on record', with a 'barbecue summer' in Britain, and that our winter would be 'milder than average'. All wrong: in February it admitted that 2008-9 was 'the coldest winter for 13 years'.Read more ›
A must-read for all serious defenders of the thruth and sanity.
The scientific consensus, as summarized by the work of the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), is that human activity is the leading cause of climate change. Booker does not accept this view. He concludes that man-made CO2 is not destroying the world. He also believes it's all a massive conspiracy and scientists are falsifying temperature data to conjure global warming and frighten the public.
"The Real Global Warming Disaster" has been described by The Guardian newspaper in London as being "the definitive climate sceptics' manual." Booker claims that the Arctic ice is not vanishing and that sea levels are not rising. Booker interviews a few renegade scientists who don't believe that mankind is making the world warmer. He claims that the IPCC is run by a small group of global warming zealots, who have repeatedly rigged evidence to support their theory. He suggests that the politicians, pushed by the media, have fallen for this propaganda.
The main problem with the book is that the scientific establishment has reached a consensus on climate change. NASA claims that 97% of climate scientists believe that global warming is man-made. Booker asks you to accept that the world's scientists, for reasons unspecified, have decided to create a myth about human-induced global warming without the rest of the scientific community noticing.Read more ›
