Overblown crisis

by Analyticalpresence on Jan 30, 2013

Global warming is, without question, the most overhyped and politically charged phenomenon of modern times. That political leaders are now contemplating the reversal of economic progress and human prosperity for the sake of a few hundredths of a degree Celsius is beyond absurd. All the hyperbole has been expended over a brief era--1978-1997 when globally averaged temperatures rose about one-third of a degree Celsius, this following a period--1945-1997--when they fell by a like amount. To single out CO2 as the culprit is irrational, particularly when the earth was 1-2 degrees warmer in the period 900-1350 without industrial activity. In fact, the earth's climate is subject, primarily, to natural, cyclical forces, including solar activity, the earth's elliptical orbit, its axial tilt, its precission wobble, and the effect of cosmic rays on cloud cover that do far more to explain climate variation than an inconsequential trace gas that has been singled out as the leading culprit. But the cause is clear. CO2 is one factor subject to control by government which can substitute bureacratic diktat for free market mechanisms

Professional but blinkered

by Lesmac on Apr 1, 2010

This is a most professional text-book, well written and clearly explained. It suffers from one major flaw. It assumes that Carbon dioxide and global warming are synonyms. There is no question about other causes than the increase in CO2 emissions whether or not the models accurately portray past history and predict the future.Ignores ocean currents, solar radiation, cloud cover and historical evidence of previous warmings. Take it as an article of faith and you will be satisfied. Take it as a scientific enquiry and you will be horrified.

Thorough

by UniversityStudent on Jul 23, 2009

this book was one of two required for a university course. it is very thorough in explaining the science of climate (& change) without being to overwhelming to the lay person.
