The New Scientist states, "Solar forcing may have been largely responsible for warming in the late 19th and early 20th century, levelling off during the mid-century cooling." The earth indeed cooled between 1945 and 1976, despite record GDP growth of more than 4% a year and rising CO2 levels.
A 2009 article in Geophysical Research Letters said, "Increasing Total Solar Irradiance between 1980 and 2000 could have contributed significantly to global warming." The 2004 Symposium of the International Astronomical Union agreed that the sun caused most of this warming. It also concluded that the sun's activity would soon lessen and so that the earth would again start to cool (as it has done since 1998). Between January 2007 and February 2008, the earth's temperature fell by 0.59 degrees C (the Met Office's Hadley Centre's figure), or 0.75 degrees C (the Goddard Institute of Space Studies' figure).
On estimates of sea-levels by 2100, the journal Science said, "increases of two metres are physically untenable." The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change's Fourth Assessment Report estimates a rise of 13 centimetres by 2100, dropping its earlier estimate of 30 centimetres. Al Gore said six metres!
Antarctica's temperature averages 46 degrees C below zero.Read more ›
This is a book that, without hestitation, I would recommend to anyone who wants to become well informed about climate change issues and to anyone who would prefer not to have their hard-earned wealth squandered into the coffers of carbon-trading dealers. I found the book very readable with the science presented in terms which, I consider, would be easily understood by non-scientists.
For those who campaign against the use of climate change scares to tax and control the populations of Western democracies this book is a vital source of useful information.
who are questioning the 'settled science' on Global Warming
or, as it has become due to recent temperature falls, Climate Change.
The incompetent "science" being carried out is staggering.
Computer models that don't work. Research data being ignored if
it does not fit the model. Scientists being ignored if they
Never mind the facts let's get a good headline !!
The biased guesswork and 'tweaked data' being forwarded by the IPCC to Governments
as fact is staggering. All of it is quite easily torn to shreds
in this excellent book.
Just as I was wondering how they were getting away with it in the light of
the truth being so available and how could our leaders be so gullible
it became clear that they are
mostly all in on it !!
Think of them all now as Tax Collectors in green suits.
The mother of all taxes is on the way if 'Copenhagen' goes through, and because it's for the
good of the planet you will all be willing to pay anything to stop
the polar bears from melting..or whatever.
This is an excellent way of making the UN (and Al Gore's carbon traders)
masters of the planet and rich beyond imagination. It will do nothing for the
planet; it will carry on warming up and cooling down as it has for
millions of years, along with the Polar Bears.
From Chapter 16 you will feel a chill run down YOUR spine, and it
has nothing to do with climate and everything to do with big business
and governmental control.
The author may not be a global warming expert, he doesn't have to be. What he has masterfully done though, is compile scientific (yes, scientific) evidence which not only challenges, but debunks the entire "concensus" view surrounding "global warming". When politicians state that the "science is settled" and we "don't have time" to debate further - summed up by Gordon Brown's recent (Oct, 2009) announcement that we "only have 50 days left" - after reading this book, you'll understand what the real reasons are behind their rush.
This is a timely book. I just wish it was compulsory reading.
