Book Description

If the IPCC was Selling Manmade Global Warming as a Product, Would the FTC Stop their Deceptive Ads? has been published for color versions of Kindle due to its popularity in .pdf form.

The failings of the computer-based climate models used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) are exposed in If the IPCC was Selling Manmade Global Warming as a Product, Would the FTC Stop their Deceptive Ads? The discussions are intended for readers without technical or scientific backgrounds, and they are presented with more than 200 color illustrations, which allow the 20th Century surface temperature data and the publically available data from the IPCC’s climate models to tell their stories.

Based on computer simulations of 20th Century global surface temperatures with and without anthropogenic greenhouse gases, the IPCC says the warming was most likely caused by increased concentrations of manmade greenhouse gases. But those climate models show no skill at being able to simulate the warming of global surface temperatures over the 20th Century. This is plainly visible in time-series graphs when the model outputs are compared to surface temperatures during the two warming periods and the two periods when surface temperatures leveled out or cooled slightly.

If the IPCC was Selling Manmade Global Warming as a Product, Would the FTC Stop their Deceptive Ads? also allows satellite-based sea surface temperature data to show how, where and why it has warmed over that past 30 years. It includes a detailed, introductory-level explanation of the natural climate phenomenon known as the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and describes how ENSO is misunderstood or misrepresented by some climate scientists. And it explains where, online, readers can find the surface temperature and climate model data, in easy-to-use formats, and how to reproduce the graphs in the book so the readers can confirm the results.

4.0 out of 5 stars detailed piece of work 14 Aug. 2012
By Dr.P
Format:Kindle Edition
This is a detailed and critical review of the IPCC data, particularly on climate modelling. The author has, of course, a specific stance but covers the area well and it's worth a read.
Some of the graphs don't go well with a black and white kindle screen and there is some repetition of point, but it's worth the effort.

4.0 out of 5 stars Make up your own mind 18 May 2012
By HR - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Bob Tisdale has been providing climate data on his blog for several years now as a citizen-scientist in the tradition of 19th century naturalists (but with access to 21st century technology). This book is a nice compilation of that work. It seems like the philosophy behind his approach is to provide you with the data and let you make up your own mind. His concentration on the oceans reflects just how important they are to understanding what is going on in our climate.
There are plenty of reasons to believe that the prophecies of doom around climate change are overstated. Tisdale's work helps to highlight that. You should be looking for a variety of viewpoints on the subject of climate change and one of them should be this book. I'd heartily recommend this book and his blog.

5.0 out of 5 stars computer aided global warming 9 Jun. 2012
By Cinaed - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
This is an excellent book and highly recommended especially for those who haven't followed Bob Tisdale on his or WUWT blogs. Actually, it's a great book even if you have followed the blog discussions.

Scientific theories require physical measurements as evidence. The output of a computer model is not scientific evidence. When the model doesn't reproduce the measurements then the model needs to be changed. Bob has clearly demonstrated in the case of the IPCC, the model doesn't reproduce the data. And given the IPCC has based public policy tragically incomplete science and misleading models, from the perspective of science, the IPCC should denote the 'International Pack of Climate Criminals' :).

2.0 out of 5 stars Bias, bias everywhere 12 May 2012
By Justsomeguy - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition
Both sides of the global warming debate fall far too often into a name calling fiasco. Tisdale's posts on WattsUpWithThat surely show his bias, as does this text. If you want to learn about global warming, and the problem's with the global advocates and their dissenters I recommend the IPCC reports themselves and then fact check them, it will become clear that the UN and the IPCC are not telling you the truth, but instead cherry picking facts for their side of the argument. What you do when you figure out James Hansen and Michael Mann are making fools of their scientific colleagues is up to you.
