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.

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.
