5.0 out of 5 stars Great Listening, Jan. 20 2014
The Christmas Oratorio was exactly as I expected and was delivered promptly. I had previously owned a vinyl version of Bach's Oratorio, but, when the turn table was discarded, so were the vinyl recordings. That was quite a few years ago. I missed this one so did a quick search on and found this King's College version. Thank you amazon!

A great story of real science and the discovery of the source of cloud condensation nuclei. The source of cloud seed nuclei has been a puzzle for generations. Dr. Svensmark has demonstrated truly ground breaking results with the connection between Cosmic rays, muons and low level cloud cover, the type of cloud that reflects sunlight back to space and produces a cooling effect. The sun's magnetic activity regulates the magnetic shield that controls the cosmic ray flux and ultimately the surface temperature of the Earth. A must read for anyone interested in the Earth's climate.

5.0 out of 5 stars A very Important Book., May 27 2010
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.
