Review

"Goreham, the antidote for Gore!”
—Doug Giles, Syndicated Radio Host

“It’s all here. Replete with great graphics and much humor, Steve Goreham reveals the mountain of failed eco-predictions, rank green hypocrisies and outright fraud that currently masquerades in the guise of modern environmentalism and ‘climate science’…The Mad, Mad, Mad World of Climatism is an easy-to-read, easy-to-understand expose of all the key facts behind the dirty ‘green’ politics of the greatest pseudo-science racket of our age.”
—Peter Glover, author, journalist, and International Associate Editor, Energy Tribune


“This is the first book written to make you laugh at the absurdity of man-made global warming—that is, until it makes you cry. If 250 pages of facts are too much, you can simply read the amusing cartoons and quotes on every page to fully understand how the world has been misled.”
—Jay Lehr, PhD, Science Director, The Heartland Institute

“I am extremely impressed with this work, easily the best of its kind I have ever read…an authoritative, well-referenced, but easy-to-understand summary of the climate scare and its dire implications for society and the environment.”
—Tom Harris, Executive Director, International Climate Science Coalition


“Interesting, accurate, compellingly readable, and directly relevant to one of today’s most important political debates. What more needs to be said beyond, ‘Buy this fascinating book!’”
—Robert Carter, Australian Marine Geologist and Environmental Scientist

“Steve’s new book is exactly what I hoped would be published. It makes climate science understandable to everyone. Finally, some common sense, presented in a way to inform, not to deceive.”
—Burt Rutan, Aerospace Engineer, Innovator, Entrepreneur


“Steve Goreham’s insightful and readable analysis of the ideology of Climatism and its socialistic goals is an important addition to public understanding of both the facts and the critical importance of making the right decisions for America.”
—Harrison H. Schmitt, PhD, Geologist, former Senator and Apollo 17 Astronaut

“Goreham’s book is an excellent, readable, comprehensive, and indispensable education for everyone. It should be required reading in all schools, universities, statehouses and Congress.”
—Edwin Berry, PhD, Physicist and Meteorologist


“Steve Goreham has provided the science, the motivations, and the examples of deceit that surround the man-made warming hypothesis. He leaves no excuse for the public and the policy makers to prolong the misguided effort to spend trillions of dollars trying to reduce the insignificant effect of CO2 on global climate change.”
—Leighton Steward, Geologist, Author, and Environmentalist

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.

Putting Climate Change in the Right Perspective: A Natural Cycle Sept. 8 2014
By Clare G. - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Finally, so real common sense to the senseless and erroneous environmental push to control the climate and save the planet! Mr. Goreham's resources are excellent as he uses many of the scientific studies over the past half century to show that the climate has always changed -- and will always change -- primarily due to Sun spots, ocean churns, the Moon, and the natural production of CO2 (a "trace gas" that makes up only about 19% of the atmosphere), which is necessary to the sustaining of life (plants need the CO2 that we breathe out in order to produce oxygen that we breathe in!). Mr. Goreham does an excellent job of tracing the real reason that world leaders want to create an atmosphere of alarmism among people -- money! There is big money in trading carbon credits and the rich are getting richer off of this scheme. As we know from previous ice ages and global warmings (from looking at ice cores pulled from the Arctic ice caps) there have been times when CO2 was much higher, particularly during global warm periods and when the earth was entirely tropical (prior to the ice caps forming!). I've studied this issue for many years, and am now a big fan of Steve Goreham!! He lays it all out for those with any knowledge of climate science and a modicum of common sense will understand clearly!

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.
