Fred Singer and Dennis Avery highlight the many fallacies associated with the hysterical claims of dangerous climate change and unsubstantiated computer projections surrounding the theory of human caused global warming. They have managed to lay out, dissect, and expose the facts in a thoroughly readable style. Unstoppable Global Warming is a ‘must read’ for everybody who is interested in the real issues surrounding climate change. (William Kininmonth, Australasian Climate Research)
Singer and Avery skillfully present their case for the existence of a solar-induced 1,500 year cycle that generates warming and cooling of the Earth’s temperature irrespective of the atmospheric concentration of greenhouse gases. The authors even more skillfully argue the implications of their findings to the ongoing heated debate regarding the human contribution to observed and future changes in climate. (Robert C. Balling, Jr., Arizona State University)
Fred Singer and Dennis Avery have put together an impressive collection of 'reasons to believe that global warming may not be as bad as some people are telling us'—in other words, that natural variations, rather than human-emitted greenhouse gases, have tended to control climate. Their exhaustive list of scientific references, mostly from refereed journals, only underscores their statements. Bravo for a job well done! (George H. Taylor, State Climatologist, Oregon Climate Service)
This book is must reading for anyone concerned about global warming. The authors stress that "consensus" has no place in science, only hard-headed testing of speculation. Their testing of the earth's erratic, moderate warming since 1850 leads them to the planet's recently discovered—but already broadly studied—1500-year climate cycle. (Frederick Seitz, former President, National Academy of Sciences)
Real science in, real science out. A masterpiece of understanding, dispelling the computer myths of manmade global warming. Please read this book. (David Bellamy, Order of the British Empire, academic, author and host of British TV documentaries)
A wonderful new book. . . . meticulously researched and footnoted. (The Washington Times)
Singer and Avery present in popular language supported by in-depth scientific evidence the compelling concept that global temperatures have been rising mostly or entirely because of a natural cycle. Unstoppable Global Warming explains why we're warming, why it's not very dangerous, and why we can't stop it anyway. (Science Daily)
...a thoughtful book by two respected scientists... (Shopfloor.Org)
Unstoppable Global Warming is a valuable and sane contribution to the public conversation about global warming. It deserves a warm reception from readers. (The Washington Times)
About the Author
S. Fred Singer was the founding dean of the School of Environmental and Planetary Sciences at the University of Miami, the first director of the U.S. National Weather Satellite Service, and served five years as vice chairman of the U.S. National Advisory Committee on Oceans and Atmospheres. He is the author or editor of more than a dozen books and monographs, including Global Climate Change (Paragon House, 1989) and Hot Talk, Cold Science: Global Warming's Unfinished Debate, (Independent Institute, 1997). Dennis T. Avery has been a senior fellow of the Hudson Institute since 1989. Prior to that, he was a senior analyst in the U.S. Department of State (1980-88), where he won the National Intelligence Medal of Achievement in 1983. Avery's book Saving the Planet With Pesticides and Plastic: The Environmental Triumph of High-Yield Farming (Hudson) was first published in 1995, with a second edition in 2000.
