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.
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 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.
