Présentation de l'éditeur

Global warming is a household phrase these days, and it has led to a situation in which far too many educated people believe that mankind is hastening the destruction of the world through the emission of carbon dioxide. But where is the evidence to support these claims? In this impossible-to-put-down book Harold Ambler presents the history of climate in ways that are accessible to the average Joe or Jill and which make it clear that in terms of temperature, weather, and climate we have been here before. Without compromising on scientific detail, Ambler spends each chapter focusing on a different facet of climate science including sunspots, tradewinds, computer modeling, and data collection. He also deftly connects political stakeholders in the global warming arena to various distortions of the science. This distillation of information gives the reader the ability to decide whether global warming is a tangible threat or a convenient propaganda tool.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A cogent and revealing review of Climate Change 16 février 2012
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Read this book and skip Michael Mann's recent prevarications The Hockey Stick and the Climate Wars: Dispatches from the Front Lines.

Some say fire, some say ice (thank you Robert Frost), but the ice fans have far more real science to back their claims.

Even in green-benighted Germany the seeds of doubt have recently arisen. Only currently available in German, "Die Kalte Sonne" (The Cold Sun) by Dr Sebastian Lüning and Prof. Fritz Vahrenholt covers a similar thesis.

Ambler uses logic, simple non-technical language and many examples to make his points, making this quite accessible to the non-mathematical yet thorough and convincing. Some reviewers have said this is a left-wing approach, but I find it more properly described as neutral. He makes the cogent point that true environmental causes and real concerns such as world hunger and mercury contamination have been consumed in the conflagration of the Catastrophic Anthropogenic Global Warming propaganda crusade. Even the most conservative talking heads agree that the earth requires good stewardship. Spending billions on useless carbon credits to prevent a non-catastrophe that can't be prevented anyway is not good stewardship.

If you are a thorough CAGW believer, try this book to see how the other half lives. You won't be trashed or demonized and you might learn something. If you have a skeptical bent, read this book as a thorough basic review. I have read most of the basic points in other sources, but Ambler brings them together and puts them in context very well.

If the next decades bring an extended lessening of Solar Activity, I vote with Ambler that it should be called the "Eddy Minimum" after Jack Eddy. Read "Don't Sell Your Coat" to see why!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Welcome Book - But We May Soon Wish it Were Not Getting Colder 26 février 2012
Par B. Hutchins - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This is a very welcome book. Even if you have a dozen or so books on the subject, you may well find this one to be different in three ways:

First of all, it is VERY readable - cover to cover in two evenings. And it is not very technical. This means that the science is nicely, and accurately, digested. Alarmist might reflexively complain that such an evaluation means that the "true consensus science" is ignored. Others may note that this more approachable presentation prevents the alarmist from shouting "you wouldn't understand - we're smart and you aren't - you just have to trust us." Those who have read many of the more technical books will find their thus acquired, and thereafter well-considered views, to be nicely reflected by Ambler.

Second, the point of attack here is that the earth is getting colder. This, while not originating with Ambler, constitutes an alarmism in the other direction, and thereby tends to co-opt (retake) the legitimate vista. Instead of discrediting the global warming ->climate change -> increase in severe weather event mantra, a more obvious implication of the evidence is upon us. No longer is it "Oh Yea! - well the last two years were not warmer" or even "there has been no statistically significant warming for 13 years" but rather "it's GOING to get cold." And inasmuch as the case for CO2 driven warming (human or otherwise) was bogus (the logarithmic relationship and anti-causality for example), here in contrast, a truly scientific case for cooling is outlined. This return to honesty is good news for the profession of science, but not great for those of us who don't particularly appreciate a chill.

The third element to note is that Ambler generally writes as a journalist or historian in telling us how we GOT into this mess. This is useful because many who understand the science are mystified at how it can be that others who apparently do (or at least should understand it) stubbornly discard their training and proceed with an irrational bias, that for all of us, and more particularly for the developing world, borders on misanthropy. Likely this pathological "science of global warming" will provide sociologists with academic fodder for many decades (as they huddle closer to the fireplace).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Covers every topic 9 février 2012
Par Leonard J. Knoll - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This is the perfect book for anyone wanting an honest objective overview of climate variation from millions of years ago to the present and even the next imminent glaciation. It covers all causes of climate variation. After reading this book, anyone should have a realistic perspective on how any present day climate variations fit into the wider picure, instead of the extreme and socially irresposible nonsense fed to us by major media.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Easy to read, biased but a real eye opener 16 avril 2012
Par Emmanuel Maicas - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
This book is entertaining and easy to read by non-scientists but it is not neutral: it is a catalog of counterarguments against catastrophic man-made global warming. The author actually predicts global cooling.

I do not think he is very thorough in his scientific analysis, perhaps for the sake of clarity, but the book successfully destroys the claim that there is a scientific consensus on climate change. The debate is very real and this book is a good summary of the points of contention.

I wished the author would pair up with a "warmist" author to produce a side-by-side discussion.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Eye opener 10 juin 2014
Par Michel Lafontaine - Publié sur Amazon.com

Adults should be put in charge of this whole business about global warming a.k.a climate change a.k.a climate disruption, whatever name they give to it. This book gives ample reasons to reconsider the whole thing using FACTS, HARD DATA, as opposed to quasi religious beliefs.
