Global Warming: Top 15 books on the latest real science (apolitical)

Emc2
The list author says: "This is a primer list for those with a genuine interest in the science supporting the theory of man made Global Warming. This list is intended as a starting reference for those with scientific curiosity who want to make their own judgment. Books presenting alternate hypotheses are also included, that’s how science works. Most books considered were published between 2007 and 2010 (only one is left from 2004), just to recommend the most updated information. I tried, but some are indeed controversial and not so apolitical. The latest batch of publications is moving the debate towards the economics of mitigation and deciding which are the most sensible/reasonable policies, regardless of whether global warming is real or not."
Climate Change: Observed impacts on Planet Earth
Climate Change: Observed impacts on Planet Earth
"Don't miss it, very comprehensive. Recommended for those concerned with the science. 2009."
Climate Change: Picturing the Science
Climate Change: Picturing the Science
"2009"
Climate Change 2007 - The Physical Science Basis: Working Group I Contribution to the Fourth Assessment Report of the IPCC
Climate Change 2007 - The Physical Science Basis: Working Group I Contribution to the Fourth Assessment Report of the IPCC
"This is the latest UN's report on climate change by the IPCC, co-winner of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize (together with Al Gore). This is the "Bible" on Global Warming. Chapter 8 regarding the limitations of the ensemble of climate simulation models used by the IPCC is a must-read. Written in scientific jargon. Also available in the web in PDF format for free. 2007."
Climate of Uncertainty
Climate of Uncertainty
"A rare work standing in the middle ground, presenting the views of both sides of the controversy and their attempts to manipulate us. Despite criticism that might arise particularly from the warmer side, Stewart is bold and politically incorrect enough to delivers what he promises. Finally someone dared to break the spiral of silence. Highly recommended. 2010"
An Appeal to Reason: A Cool Look at Global Warming
An Appeal to Reason: A Cool Look at Global Warming
"This is the reply to the Stern Review, and worthwhile the reading. Lawson begins by explaining why he thinks the science is far from settle, but after Chapter 1, and as any good economist would do, he assumes the GW consensus view is right, and with common sense and through the eyes of economics he makes quite a critic. He concludes that a carbon tax is the only sensible policy. 2008"
The Deniers: The World Renowned Scientists Who Stood Up Against Global Warming Hysteria, Political Persecution, and Fraud**And those who are too fearful to do so
The Deniers: The World Renowned Scientists Who Stood Up Against Global Warming Hysteria, Political Persecution, and Fraud**And those who are too fearful to do so
"A different approach, with a detail presentation of real scientific objections to the CO2 GW theory. Despite what the title suggests, it is highly recommended for those with an honest interest in the science. 2008 PS: A revised edition was published in 2010 (covers Climategate and the IPPC Report blunders)"
The Global Deal: Climate Change and the Creation of a New Era of Progress and Prosperity
The Global Deal: Climate Change and the Creation of a New Era of Progress and Prosperity
"Sir Nicholas Stern wrote this version of his 2007 work, The Economics of Climate Change (see below), but now aiming for the general public. And some "scaring" new findings are discussed. 2009."
The Economics of Climate Change: The Stern Review
The Economics of Climate Change: The Stern Review
"The consequences of GW are analyzed through the eyes of their economic impact. This is the highly praised Stern Review. Published 2007."
Sustainable Energy - Without the Hot Air
Sustainable Energy - Without the Hot Air
"This is a must read. Though written for the UK, the author shows with simple back-of-the-envelope calculations what makes sense and what doesn't in terms of moving towards a low-carbon economy. You will be surprised of what is left without the hot air. 2009"
The Future of Everything: The Science of Prediction
The Future of Everything: The Science of Prediction
"A crash course on the limitations of simulation models in the fields of climate, economics and health. The author shows how the three fields are related and what it means for making predictions in the long term. 2007."
Cool It: The Skeptical Environmentalist's Guide to Global Warming
Cool It: The Skeptical Environmentalist's Guide to Global Warming
"From the famous "Skeptical Environmentalist", "the Martin Luther of the environmental movement", and one of Time Magazine's 100 most influential people in the world for 2004. Check the Amazon reviews, Michael Crichton as a guest reviewer praises this author as "...the best-informed and most humane advocate for environmental change in the world today. 2007."
CO2 Rising: The World's Greatest Environmental Challenge
CO2 Rising: The World's Greatest Environmental Challenge
"A primer to understand man-made global warming. Written for the general public and told from the point of view of Dave, a CO2 molecule following the carbon cycle. 2008"
The Chilling Stars: A Cosmic View of Climate Change
The Chilling Stars: A Cosmic View of Climate Change
"In this 2nd edition an updated alternate hypothesis is presented for the rising global temperatures, the sun cycles plus cosmic rays, believe or not. Controversial, but that’s how science works, and a serious case is presented for a truly alternative theory. 2008."
The Discovery of Global Warming (New Histories of Science, Technology, and Medicine)
The Discovery of Global Warming (New Histories of Science, Technology, and Medicine)
"Presents the history of the development of the theory of man made Global Warming, and the internal conflicts faced by climate scientists. A very honest account on how the consensus was reached. Recommended even for the skeptics. 2004."
A Question of Balance: Weighing the Options on Global Warming Policies
A Question of Balance: Weighing the Options on Global Warming Policies
"An economist view with scenarios for all sides of the controversy. The conclusion will surprise you. A good counterbalance to the Stern Review. 2008"
