9780615569048: Don't Sell Your Coat: Surprising Truths About Climate Change

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 industry and civilization. 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.

From the Author:

Here's something that you can bring to the bank: With regard to global warming, the major purveyors of news in the industrialized world will be climbing down from their positions of frenzied alarmism. Here's something else that you can bring to your banker: the climb-down will be sneaky. On the other hand, when the series of editorial re-positionings is visible to casual members of the public at all, it will be awkward. How do I know? Because the process has already begun.

From the Inside Flap:

"This is a beautiful book in many ways. First of all, in terms of attracting the attention of whoever may pick it up, it is beautifully laid out, typeset, and illustrated. You might well buy the Kindle version, but I'll bet you'll soon come to wish you had something more tangible for the coffee table. Second, it is extremely well written. Friendly, fluent, flowing prose, and although dealing with very contentious issues, civil and coherent throughout. Third, it provides candid glimpses into the life and the intellectual and political development of boy, youth, and grown man, one who is alive to the world of nature and to the world of ideas, and who thought on both deeply enough to shake off the left-wing conditioning all around him about climate change, and to think through his own thoughts and seek out data himself." - John Shade, writing at Climate Lessons

Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****.Not very long ago, scientists, politicians, and journalists were seemingly unanimous: Global warming had already damaged nature, and things were only going to get worse. Snow was rapidly becoming a thing of the past; summers were becoming hotter; storms were becoming more violent; droughts and floods were becoming more intense. This was a nightmare.

As for our own time, snow cover is increasing; summertime heating is negligible; hurricanes are diminishing; droughts and floods both used to be worse. The real nightmare is the politics suffusing modern climate science and the effects this is having on every resident of planet Earth. Don t Sell Your Coat, besides bearing a suggestion for its readers, brings to the public the scientific argument that global cooling is as likely a scenario for the next few decades as any of the nightmares of Al Gore. It also allows non-scientists to enter the debate about climate change armed with facts and to have a sense of humor while they do so. Codice libro della libreria APC9780615569048
