Steve Goreham has compiled the pertinent scientific facts regarding the climate change issue. The book includes an adequate number of charts and graphs to illustrate his points. There are also a number of side bars which I found entertaining. In my opinion Goreham does an excellent and credible job of countering the myth that climate change is within the control of mankind. He does touch on some of the motivations which have perpetrated this issue having gained popular acceptance but leaves me wanting more in this regard. There are many other books which cover the same terrain as Goreham but he does an exceptional job of making the issues accessible to almost every reader interested in this subject.

This is an excellent expose of the phobia that has overtaken the so-called "civilized world".
It is a book that should be required reading in schools - and teacher's colleges.

Entertaining comments May 5 2013
By meadowreader - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Reading the reviews is great fun, particularly the attacks on the book and its author based on his association with the Heartland Institute. In part those are entertaining because they so blatantly try to substitute various versions of the Ad Hominem fallacy for substantive argument, combined with equally blatant and fallacious Arguments from Authority. It's all especially funny when the critic admits that he has read only a small portion of the book and couldn't even find the end notes. What comes across most clearly is that some of these folks are not used to being challenged and having to defend their own position on its merits.

But what's truly hilarious is to see folks from the science establishment pretending not to have their own financial and other interests at stake in this debate. It's too funny! Climate change science is a taxpayer-funded mini-industry: Lots of research institutes -- does the green energy industry help fund those? -- that provide fat salaries and well-paid, high-status, high-visibility positions inside and outside of academia, endless paid-for conferences in fancy international locations with premium hotel and other accommodations, specialized journals to publish your articles and thus fatten the vita for academic promotions and pay increases, research contracts and grants by the boatload, invitations to sit on government panels and advisory boards, lucrative consultant posts, and on and on. The Earth- and Atmospheric Sciences never, ever had it so good.

The notion that climate scientists are an unbiased and disinterested source of commentary on a book like this is preposterous. All the Ad Hominem sputtering and Assertions from Authority are just another version of the panicked attempts to shut off debate with nonsense about "settled science." Baloney. Only by blind luck could true knowledge in an area this complex and poorly understood be represented by computer models that are replete with errors of specification and measurement. It's farcical. The outraged defensive reactions you see here from representatives of the climate science establishment are exactly what you always see when any heavily-invested interest group sees its gravy train in danger of being de-railed.

Pop some corn, sit back and enjoy, because this show is just getting started. There's a photo on the web this morning of two Meteorology profs at San Jose State, one holding this book over a lit match held by the other. Book burning used to be the province of religious fanatics intent on eliminating heresy. In a way, I guess it still is.

Another Heretic June 16 2013
By Maris Ziraks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This fine book has an overall rating of only 3 1/2 stars because the minions from the church of ManBearPig have come forth to silence the Deniers. It is interesting to note that a fair number of the book's critics have not bothered to read it, but are content to base their shrill reviews on a cursory skimming. I can picture their apoplectic rage, causing them to leave spittle on their monitor, as Sylvester The Cat might do while pounding out their self righteous critiques.

Now to the book. In the first part, Mr. Goreham introduces the many individuals and organizations that support the idea of AGW. He does this in a respectful way, without any "smirking", as some have suggested. After that, he proceeds to address every aspect of the debate, from A to Z, in a reasoned presentation of facts, that any first rate courtroom attorney would envy. Some have accused the author of not being a scientist. I believe that his MS in Electrical Engineering provide more than ample credentials in science, and its applications in the real world. His ability to understand the nuances of the scientific method in determining causal relationships far greater than that of ALGOR.

Readers may consider reading the last couple of pages of the book before starting at the beginning. These point out that many well meaning adherents of AGM are prompted by the "Precautionary Principle". Unfortunately, in a world with finite resources, and the many worthy needs clamoring for them; we cannot afford to spend untold sums on an unproven calamity.

I have loaned my copy of this very readable book to a friend who is a believer in AGW, with a request that he keep a writing tablet nearby, so that he might jot down any factual errors, or items that he disagrees with. It will be interesting to see what he comes up with. As with a couple of other books that I have been taken with, I may buy a second copy to make part of my personal lending library. At my request. the Phoenix Public Library is in the process of adding this book to its collection.

The debate is not over. Note that Mr. Goreham has offered to debate his opponents, with no takers thus far.

Measurable evidence doesn't support man made cause Aug. 26 2013
By Michael Bridges - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The author did an excellent job of comparing actual empirical evidence that can be observed, measured and repeated, with the claims of the man made global warming alarmists based on their computer models. The information was very well researched and had some humor sprinkled in to make the information more enjoyable to read. I highly recommend this book to everyone interested in understanding the warming and cooling trends that are natural and normal over time and how the scare over mans additional CO2 is politics being exalted over the actual evidence that can be measured in the upper atmosphere.

A top read May 2 2013
By Cathy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Congrats to Mr Goreham for having mastered the wide range of topics that are related to the global warming issue, and then for sharing his knowledge with us in a such a chatty, easily read form. A must-read for those who want to understand the magnitude of the carbon dioxide scam, and the turpitude of the enviromental lobby groups, business interests, scientific organisations and politicians who are benefitting from it.
