1.0 out of 5 stars Alarmism is unhelpful to the discussion, 20 Feb 2013
This review is from: Overheated: The Human Cost of Climate Change (Hardcover)
Another author cashing in on Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt.

Global warming has been on hold for 14 years (source - UK met office) and CO2 is still increasing. I'd like to see this addressed in this book. The warm spell from the 70's to 90's seems to have been temporary and part of a cyclic effect. Calling it climate change is disingenuous...look at the big yellow book title.

This book continues to preach the precautionary principle says we must act even if there is no problem. Unfortunately the risk calculation is based on action being without risk or cost. We know now that bottom left quadrant is not without risk or cost. The risk is we are generating fuel poverty by pursuing impracticable renewable strategies that are turning out to be costly white elephants.

The book is based on flawed models and dubious data. Read it alongside the official IPCC projections which are modified down every time they are released. And keep in mind the "snow is a thing of the past", "desertification of south east england" and "the seychelles are drowning" predictions all of which have failed to come to pass.

If you still believe, I have a plans for a citrus farm in Kent you might want to invest in...

Global warming has NOT been on hold for 14 years. The source is wrong. Its what Daily Mail says Met Office is saying and Met Office has answered to that false statement. Try something better. Try explaining why 97% of climate scientists (the people that know about this) is in favor of the idee that the Earth is warming because of our co2 emissions.
I havent read the book yet but there is two youtube clips on Youtube where he summarises the book and that very good.
