A cogent and revealing review of Climate Change 16. Februar 2012
Von Amazon Customer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
Read this book and skip Michael Mann's recent prevarications The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars: Dispatches from the Front Lines.

Some say fire, some say ice (thank you Robert Frost), but the ice fans have far more real science to back their claims.

Even in green-benighted Germany the seeds of doubt have recently arisen. Only currently available in German, "Die Kalte Sonne" (The Cold Sun) by Dr Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt covers a similar thesis.

Ambler uses logic, simple non-technical language and many examples to make his points, making this quite accessible to the non-mathematical yet thorough and convincing. Some reviewers have said this is a left-wing approach, but I find it more properly described as neutral. He makes the cogent point that true environmental causes and real concerns such as world hunger and mercury contamination have been consumed in the conflagration of the Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming propaganda crusade. Even the most conservative talking heads agree that the earth requires good stewardship. Spending billions on useless carbon credits to prevent a non-catastrophe that can't be prevented anyway is not good stewardship.

If you are a thorough CAGW believer, try this book to see how the other half lives. You won't be trashed or demonized and you might learn something. If you have a skeptical bent, read this book as a thorough basic review. I have read most of the basic points in other sources, but Ambler brings them together and puts them in context very well.

If the next decades bring an extended lessening of Solar Activity, I vote with Ambler that it should be called the "Eddy Minimum" after Jack Eddy. Read "Don't Sell Your Coat" to see why!

The IPCC has got it wrong - it will get colder. 25. September 2014
Von ep289 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
A very convincing expose of climate junk science. Particularly strong on the demolition of IPCC's climate modeling systems. The description of what has to be covered in a climate modeling program is so vast that it is incomprehensible that they will ever work or be useful - they have failed so far. Yet this is IPCC's main proof of man's contribution to global warming.
Also he gives a very effective explanation on the sun's almost total contribution to climate changing.
Another area of interest is the impossibility of measuring the average global temperatures - it goes in to the many variables and problems in marking the temperatures, so you have to question what we are told.
It does not cover as many aspects as other climate sceptics books and is a bit wordy - but the areas covered are done in some depth.

Welcome Book - But We May Soon Wish it Were Not Getting Colder 26. Februar 2012
Von B. Hutchins - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is a very welcome book. Even if you have a dozen or so books on the subject, you may well find this one to be different in three ways:

First of all, it is VERY readable - cover to cover in two evenings. And it is not very technical. This means that the science is nicely, and accurately, digested. Alarmist might reflexively complain that such an evaluation means that the "true consensus science" is ignored. Others may note that this more approachable presentation prevents the alarmist from shouting "you wouldn't understand - we're smart and you aren't - you just have to trust us." Those who have read many of the more technical books will find their thus acquired, and thereafter well-considered views, to be nicely reflected by Ambler.

Second, the point of attack here is that the earth is getting colder. This, while not originating with Ambler, constitutes an alarmism in the other direction, and thereby tends to co-opt (retake) the legitimate vista. Instead of discrediting the global warming ->climate change -> increase in severe weather event mantra, a more obvious implication of the evidence is upon us. No longer is it "Oh Yea! - well the last two years were not warmer" or even "there has been no statistically significant warming for 13 years" but rather "it's GOING to get cold." And inasmuch as the case for CO2 driven warming (human or otherwise) was bogus (the logarithmic relationship and anti-causality for example), here in contrast, a truly scientific case for cooling is outlined. This return to honesty is good news for the profession of science, but not great for those of us who don't particularly appreciate a chill.

The third element to note is that Ambler generally writes as a journalist or historian in telling us how we GOT into this mess. This is useful because many who understand the science are mystified at how it can be that others who apparently do (or at least should understand it) stubbornly discard their training and proceed with an irrational bias, that for all of us, and more particularly for the developing world, borders on misanthropy. Likely this pathological "science of global warming" will provide sociologists with academic fodder for many decades (as they huddle closer to the fireplace).

Easy to read, biased but a real eye opener 16. April 2012
Von Emmanuel Maicas - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This book is entertaining and easy to read by non-scientists but it is not neutral: it is a catalog of counterarguments against catastrophic man-made global warming. The author actually predicts global cooling.

I do not think he is very thorough in his scientific analysis, perhaps for the sake of clarity, but the book successfully destroys the claim that there is a scientific consensus on climate change. The debate is very real and this book is a good summary of the points of contention.

I wished the author would pair up with a "warmist" author to produce a side-by-side discussion.

Covers every topic 9. Februar 2012
Von Leonard J. Knoll - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is the perfect book for anyone wanting an honest objective overview of climate variation from millions of years ago to the present and even the next imminent glaciation. It covers all causes of climate variation. After reading this book, anyone should have a realistic perspective on how any present day climate variations fit into the wider picure, instead of the extreme and socially irresposible nonsense fed to us by major media.
