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
"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
"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
"Goreham, the antidote for Gore!"

--Peter Glover, author, journalist, and International Associate Editor, Energy Tribune
"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

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.
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.
