Books to Consider

Books to Consider, that I have read and found scientifically/factually based:
Unstoppable Global Warming: Every 1500 Years
Singer and Avery present the compelling concept that global temperatures have been rising mostly or entirely because of a natural cycle. Using historic data from two millennia of recorded history combined with natural physical records, the authors argue that the 1,500 year solar-driven cycle that has always controlled the earth's climate remains the driving force in the current warming trend.

The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming
provides a provocative, entertaining, and well-documented expose of some of the most shamelessly politicized pseudo-science we are likely to see in our relatively cool lifetimes.

Shattered Consensus: The True State of Global Warming
convincingly demonstrates the remarkable differences between what we commonly read about global warming and what is really appreciation of the complexity of the climate issue and will question the need for expensive policies that are likely to have little or no detectable effect on the planet's temperature

Global Warming and Other Eco Myths: How the Environmental Movement Uses False Science to Scare Us to Death
explode the myths behind much of the doom and gloom of today's environmental movement. You will discover how the hysteria about global warming, overpopulation, mass extinctions, imminent famines, biotechnology, energy shortages, and more are grounded not in reason but in false science and a fear of progress

Global Warming in a Politically Correct Climate: How Truth Became Controversial
Contrasting the exaggerations and glib explanations of politicians, advocacy groups, and bureaucracies, Mathiesen provides a clear and revolutionary account of the actual science behind five major environmental campaigns. As the title indicates, Mathiesen's work culminates in a relentlessly objective analysis of the real causes of the present global warming.

New Books to Consider, that I have not yet read.
Climate Confusion: How Global Warming Hysteria Leads to Bad Science, Pandering Politicians and Misguided Policies that Hurt the Poor
shows that fears about global warming are vastly exaggerated and are driven by politics, not truth.......helping the reader to better appreciate why scientific research in this area has become tainted and untrustworthy.
wanted to counter currently proposed policy "solutions" to global warming that will have devastating effects on the world's poor.

An Appeal to Reason: A Cool Look at Global Warming
that global warming is not the devastating threat to the planet it is widely alleged ot be; and that the remedy that is currently being proposed, which is in any event politically unattainable, would be worse that the threat it is supposed to avert.All this is argued with logic, commmon sense, and even wit, and thoroughly sourced and referenced. The book concludes by outlining the form a rational response to global warming should take, and explains why the mistaken conventional wisdom has become the quasi-religion it is today, and the dangers that this presents.
