This is a book that purports to discredit the hypothesis of man-made global warming due to carbon dioxide produced by the burning of fossil fuels. However, it contains much of what I would term "crackpot science" and so the book cannot be taken seriously. Worse than that, it is seriously misleading if used as a source of scientific information. Finally, it enables CAGW believers to say "Deniers are talking nonsense as usual".
My own position
My review of "Slaying the Sky Dragon - Death of the Greenhouse Gas Theory" is not complimentary so, for the avoidance of doubt, let me make my own position clear:
- I think that belief in catastrophic man-made climate change is akin to a religion which has many passionate believers, whose belief is based on faith rather than evidence.
- I think that the global warming mass delusion has resulted in immense harm in numerous ways.
- The evidence for global warming was based on analysis of temperature data with numerous problems of reliability but in any case the data has failed to show continued global warming for the past ten years or so.
The evidence for CO2 being a threat is non-existent. The only "evidence" is computer models, which have been programmed by people with a strong desire to produce evidence for a strong relation between CO2 and global temperatures. But, as someone said, a computer model is an illustration of a hypothesis, it is not evidence.
I am sure that, at some time in the future, perhaps not in my lifetime, the whole thing will be recognised as the greatest mass-delusion of all time.Read more ›
Funny, how people with no apparent knowledge of even the basics of the physics of radiative transfer think they have the authority to write a book about it. The "science" presented in this book is of a laughable Mickey-mouse level and is mostly wrong and presented in a misleading way at pretty much every level. The "reviews" you can read here of the climate change deniers are often equally laughable with a truly staggering display of lack of ANY basic knowledge of thermodynamics or radiative transfer. It truly boggles the mind that people with not even the very basic knowledge required to understand the greenhouse effect believe they can pontificate about the matter. I suppose that is post-mdernism for you.
Don't waste your mental effort on this pathetic excuse for a science book.
The book sets out, chapter by chapter the reasons why the theory of AGW is not only incorrect, but cannot possibly be correct.
The co-authors have impeccable scientific credentials, and spare none of their expertise in demolishing accepting notions of climate systems.
The fraudulent methods and assumptions of the IPCC are comprehensively exposed, and replaced with proper science, not speculative junk science that underpins AGW models.
Some of the last chapters are unintelligible if you don't have a good grasp of advanced maths (I certainly don't) but this doesn't detract from the fact that over 90% of the book will be understood by most people who care to know the truth.
The fallacies of the AGW brigade are shot down using real life examples, not computer models relied on so much by the IPCC.
PLease read this book, tell your friends about it, and together we may be able to stop the insane'carbon reduction' schemes currently in operation or being planned.
Diagrams are sometimes too small to follow clearly.

All aspects logically argued with reference to fact, and presented in an understandable way to the non expert. This book should be mandatory reading for all politicians!Published on 15 Aug. 2013 by Phil Boyle
