With Climategate scandals making the headlines again, it's great to have a book dealing with the actual science behind the global warming fraud, by someone who actually studies the data for a living. Spencer covers pretty much all the bases: the problems with temperature recording stations, tweaked data to give an impression matching policy, historical readings showing common trends and reversals, the importance of negative feedback on climate (completely ignored by warmists), the problems inherent in the computer models that predict more warming, and perhaps most significantly, the temperature data from the last 10+ years that have shown no warming. In fact, if his theory about cloud feedback on climate is correct (and a recent paper he has published suggests he is), we've probably entered a 30-year period of cooling. In sum, Spencer's book is easy to read and highly informative. Highly recommended.

If you have ever wondered how the Global Warming hypothesis due to CO2 came about, this book will explain just what happened. Dr. Spencer, the lead scientist for the Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer, flying on the Aqua satellite for the last decade, shows conclusively that that the atmospheric feedback is negative, not positive. This is based on real measurements not computer models! Dr. Spencer shows how the global warmers mixed up cause and effect. An excellent read and a display of real science. Highly recommended.

As an engineer with over 40 years experience in the design and development of power generation and environmental control systems, I had just completed a chapter in my next book, to be called "Global Warming Trounced", when I received from Amazon Roy Spencer's "The Great Global Warming Blunder", followed by their invitation to review it.

It was gratifying to note that Dr. Spencer's book confirmed much of what I had said and written about the subject, ever since declaring war on it, when it first appeared some twenty years ago, and I have no hesitation in recommending the book as a "must read" for anyone who cares about the future of civilization.

The book abounds with passages which I could have written myself: "The climate policy of most of the world's leading industrial nations is based on a total lie" ---- "The junk science that has led to these policy disasters is the greatest scientific blunder in history" - - - - "At some point in the future we will realize that the fear of climate change was the worst case of mass hysteria the world has ever known".

The whole thing appears to have been invented by Steve Schneider, a brash young physics graduate of the 60's, who was determined to make a name for himself, and chose as his topic "What were humans doing to the climate?" In other words, he invented the fatuous notion that our piddling activities could have an effect on the climate, which strikes me as hubris of the worst kind. Taking advantage of the newly available computer technology, he was able to devise his computer models of climate change, and in 1972 he gave a lecture to the American Association for the Advancement of Science, at which he first advanced his Theory of Global Warming. With amazing rapidity the nonsense spread.

This book presents an overlooked point of view in a scientifically robust yet easy-to-read manner. The author presents his own viewpoint backed up by research, and also explains why mainstream scientists say and believe what they do in a clear and non-judgmental manner.
