I bought this for my Kindle to further my understanding if the Great Global Warming
Discussion. It's a well-researched piece and very detailed, in some respects so detailed that it becomes very hard work. I found the many graphs to be hard to interpret at times, and would have been glad to have some more conclusions clarified as I went through the text. Nevertheless it's a powerful piece of research, performed with scientific rigour, and stands in strong contrast to the shockingly poor efforts of the AGW proponents, with their cherry-picked statistics
and automatic redaction of contra-indicators. Looks more and more as if AGW is this century's South Sea Bubble, with fortunes being made at the expense of the gullible.

This is a fascinating read and gives a layman's account of Global Warming....Using Ice core samples from the arctic and Ant-artic, John Kehr comes up with a convincing argument [for me] that the current warming trend and extreme weather is part of Earths Climatic cycle, and is no different, and to some extent less extreme than the weather that has raged around the planet for millions of years in the past and in the not so distant past. He argues the long term trend of Earth cooling [The last 1000 years are the coldest mean average in the last 10.0000] poses a far greater threat to humanity than the current warming trend. Crops grow in a warmer temperate climate, they do not grow in an Ice Age
Draw your own conclusions from the evidence he produces but either way it cant do any harm to arm yourself with the alternate take on what is happening to our planet against the views and persuasions of those that may have a more political and financial motive. All in all a thoroughly enlightening read

I have just read John Kehr's book again after lending it to an Engineer friend who immediately went out and bought his own copy. i am a retired chemist/chemical engineer who spent years in Industry designing and operating chemical plants, cause and effect and the heat and mass and energy balances of a process were our stock in trade. I have wished for years for a practising Engineer to delve into this issue and we now have volume 1 of John's deliberations for a mere £10. His wonderfully clear verbal and graphic description of our planet's daily, yearly and combined orbital (malenkovic) cycles and their relavence to farmers in the USA and elsewhere are within the understanding of anyone from any background. His equally clear description of geographical influences and the hemisperical differences effects on overall climate are likewise. His simple plots of the TSI at 65o North, the reducing greenhouse influence of CO2 with concentration and it's variable water solubility with temperature are simple relationships but critical to our understanding. The isotope ratio in ice cores based temperature records for the current Halocene and previous Eemian cycle are truly graphic and anyone can extrapolate to our future and see that winter is definitely coming. The sections on the rise and fall of sea levels and the attendant growth and demise of corals and the evolution of grizzlys to become polar bears deal with two scaremongering myths of the AGW scam If only humans were as adaptable (7 billion new innuits, seems unlikely!). John continues his deliberations and his website should be visited regularly for volume 2 etc for free, Currently Africa's droughts are explained (nuclear desalination rather than liveaid concerts is more realistic). Please buy and read the book and educate your friends and family.

As a working geologist I know about cycles and rhythms. I have always thought that the concepts of AGW made no sense. Throughout the histeria of the 90s and noughties I maintained a dignified skepticism often against the herd mentality of countless others. This book is excellent at shooting down the myth. A really really good scientific and pragmatic look at the facts about solar cycles and the distribution of continents on the earth. If you like a whodunnit - look no further than that big orange globe in the sky.

This is certainly a very comprehensive investigation about the Earth's Climate, by John H. Kehr

I bought the kindle version to read on my computer. This was the least expensive option, but I also find it much easier to read than a paper book. Most of the diagrams and graphs were quite clear and legible. It took a couple of afternoons to get through, but I didn't stop to check all the detailed numbers and fact presented.

Even as an engineer, with a similar background in R&D, and having studied the subject for several years, I found it difficult to follow all the details and analysis, particularly about the Earth's energy balance. What it did reveal is how we have been totally mislead and misinformed about global warming hysteria by the climate alarmists, with their misrepresentation of how the climate works.

I recognise the need to be specific about the details and the numbers, but felt he should have more carefully considered the primary issues and messages to get across, perhaps more succinctly, but as I know for myself, it is not easy for an engineer so deeply immersed in the details.

It is not light reading, but it certainly shows that global warming has been greatly exaggerated and if anything we should be far more concerned about the onset of climate cooling, as we approach the next ice-age.

The very clear message to come from this is that the climate is changing, it always has and it always will, and we have very little effect on it, so we had better learn to live with what happens to the climate, but don't worry about the world going up in flames due to global warming.
