Tepid . . .,
This review is from: The Real Global Warming Disaster: Is The Obsession With `Climate Change` Turning Out To Be The Most Costly Scientific Blunder In History? (Hardcover)
I bought this book in an attempt to view the phenomenon of climate change from the 'other side'. It's a disaster!! The book I mean! Even with my rather modest scientific background I could tell that he had cherry-picked his sources and made assertions from clearly unreliable 'data'. A challenge to the concensus is required, though I fear that the lack of an adequate contrary tome means that the threat is very real.

Mr. Steven C. Watson says:
Oh dear. Perhaps you could supply some evidence of this 'unreliable' data (sic)? Why should I trust someone who cannot even be bothered to do some cherry-picking of their own? Scientific background or numpty? You decide.

Lee Boehmer says:
The book itself is evidence of the lack of reliability of the 'data' and the lack of validity of its assertions. I could demonstrate that a flipped fair coin only ever lands tails up if I applied the author's lack of rigour to that endeavour. I suggest that you read the book, examine the 'sources' and think about the limitations of the evidence. You really should refrain from reading pop-science when you have no appreciation of scientific method.
