I've just finished reading FROZEN BRITAIN and although it's shocking and worrying on the one hand, one has to take a deep breath and think through what lies in opposition to this. As others have pointed out, there are errors of analysis in the book, such as temperatures. In addition, I have noticed that the author feels the need to REPEAT, REPEAT AND REPEAT the same "facts" or predictions over and over and over (see where this is going) and over again, often on the same two page spread! We are not STUPID! If a point is valid, make it once, or at best twice in a relevant context. Frankly I got the feeling he was filling up space. This feeling was reinforced by his inclusion of a large section of an interview with a scientist. Furthermore, on the point of filling space, I notice that a blank page separates the chapters of this already short book, padded it out still further. Then, as you'd expect, there's a bibliography which neatly fills up a few more pages but.......NOWHERE can I find ANY reviews of THIS book! Usually with such non-fiction the back cover has a few glowing reviews of the book - but Mr Cooke doesn't have a single one. A quick Google search reveals newspaper reviews of this book in the Daily Express and Daily Mail, which are WORD-FOR-WORD extracts from the book, rather than actual reviews, which I find suspicious to say the least.
As other reviewers point out, this book warns (you guessed it) AGAIN AND AGAIN AND AGAIN.....(AND AGAIN...) of the coming MASS MIGRATIONS "to the north and west" of people's who lands to the south become unusable due to climate change. We're warned of the complete breakdown of society as we know it and we're told we'll be governed by extreme right-wing regimes in the near future.

This book by a non-specialist dramatises climate change and predicts trouble for a society experiencing overpopulation and decline in oil supplies. It begins with an alarming sketch of what might happen if climate change in Britain starts now with a run of really cold winters. Sudden changes in climate have occurred many times in the past. The sun's magnetic field affects temperature in our global greenhouse. At sunspot minimum more cosmic rays enter the atmosphere and seed more clouds, which reflect sunlight and cool the earth (C.T.R.Wilson showed with his cloud chamber a century ago how droplets form round the tracks of atomic particles and the connection between cosmic rays and clouds is explored in Svensmark H, Calder N. The Chilling Stars). We are now at the beginning of what looks like a very weak sunspot cycle. If the trend continues we may be in for a repeat of the solar minimum associated with the Little Ice Age and the frozen Thames in the late 1600s. Failing food supplies could lead to conflict. Alternative energy development is suggested, particularly solar power. The book lists references and suggestions for further reading and has been reviewed elsewhere. I found the case convincing and put in some extra loft insulation, but doubtless our climate will continue to tease all theorists.

A disappointing book. Too much fiction in here - and some of the numbers and "facts" are wrong. Temperatures, percentages etc all get the same treatment. A lack of proof reading somewhere along the process is evident.

The author is not keen on "immigrants".

This book left me feeling cold. I'll keep it only to use it as kindling when I need it.

Unimpressed.

Excellent Book! There are a lot of good facts and knowledge in this book, born out by the fact that on average, the world is actually getting much colder. Although Britain has had a mild winter so far this winter of 2014, on average over the past 6 years it is definitely getting colder in the UK.

The planet has cooled and warmed over millions of years. We are at the end of the current inter-glacial or holocene period. We are due the next ice age. This book shows how it could begin. Scary. Hope it holds off till i'm pushing up daisies!

Scary. Not totally convinced by the authors prediction of what will happen.

The book 'Frozen Britain' starts off as a plausible, alternative perspective on climate change and the potential for a significant decrease in temperature in northern europe, due to the interruption of the gulf stream. However, reading through the book - which looks as if it is 'self-published' there is no clear structure for referencing and it looks as if the author pulled some of the reference material from the Daily Mail.

Some of the chapters are interesting to read through as a 'what if' scenario, but is best left to the fiction shelves rather than a scientific outlook on climate change.

The chapter on Labour party immigration policy is particularly imaginative, as I don't ever recall Labour party ministers thinking more immigrants would mean more core Labour votes - a bit far-fetched if you ask me. That chapter was one of the areas where I couldn't really see the connection with the potential cooling effects of climate change and what the author was talking about.

I didn't finish reading this book, as I figured there wasn't much point as the facts were not backed up with hard science, and wasn't structured well enough to be a fiction novel.
