Books (newest first in list)
|The Great Global Warming Blunder||This is a rather short book from Dr. Roy Spencer (UHA); he concentrates on one important point: are warming feedbacks positive or negative (does water vapor increase lead to more sun-blocking clouds?), and as a consequence, what is the probable climate sensitivity. There is not much math to be find (what I regret), but there are links to Dr. Spencer's blog where more extensive computations can be found.|
|The Real Global Warming Disaster||Very interesting book (often close to a thriller) by the Sunday Telegraph investigation journalist C. Booker. He writes, in excellent English, a chronology of the politicized climatology and its believers from 1972 to 2009 (stopping just before Climategate)|
|Climate Change and its Causes||This freely available booklet (PDF, 55 pages, SPPI original paper, 04Mar2010) of Dr. N. Scafetta from Duke University is certainly one of the best resuming most recent knowledge on climate change and its causes: The IPCC AGW hypothesis plays down natural causes and variability and clearly exaggerates human influence.|
|L'Homme est-il responsable du réchauffement climatique?||
By André Legendre, ingénieur chimiste ENSCP Ecole
Nationale Supérieure de Chimie, Paris.
An easy to read skeptical book. No mathematics.
The author cites Haroun Tazieff: "Je vous conseille de dormir en paix et de ne pas redouter un effet de serre anthropogénique aux conséquences négligeables."
|Climate of Extremes||By Pat
Michaels and Robert Balling Jr. (the same team that wrote "The
Satanic Gases", see further down). 2009, The Cato Institute.
Easy to read, with a lot of scientific information, putting many scares into perspective. Many pages of references.
"What is so scary that some governors don't want you to know it? Apparently it is this: The world is not coming to an end because of global warming."
|Red Hot Lies||by Christopher
Horner. Witty, well written, a non scientific book on the politics and
strategies of the global warming alarmists industry and its army of
helpers. Many insider information, some good laughs.
2008, Regnery Publishing Inc.
"Young researchers keep their mouth shut, because of the fear for repercussions for their careers..."
|Frohe Botschaften||by Dirk
Maxeiner and Michael Miersch. A very funny book, not on climate, but on
closely related "Umweltangst". In German.
2008, wjs Verlag.
"Widmen wir uns deshalb dem unablässigen Strom der Hiobsbotschaften, die ein globales Heer von Forschern und Funktionären mittlerweile am Fliessband produzieren..."
|An Appeal to Reason||by Lord Nigel
Lawson, former Chancellor and President of the British Institute of
Energy Economics-for Energy.
"The new religion of global warming ... contains a grain of truth and a mountain of nonsense."
"We appear to have entered a new age of unreason...It is from this, above al,, that we really do need to save the planet."
|Climate Confusion||by Dr. Roy
Spencer, University of Alabama in Huntsville (UAH).
"We should keep in mind that the first and only theory of some newly observed phenomenon seldom survives forever."
|Scared to Death||by Christopher
Booker and Dr. Richard North
A thrilling story of past great scares that all obey to a common scheme, and cost society huge sums in money and often many lost lives (as did the DDT scare). Global warming is the last in the row, the "mother of all scares".
|Cool it||by Bjorn
Focus on adaptation versus mitigation.. Talks of the consequent ignoring of alternate and cheaper solutions then CO2 restrictions.
2007, Alfred A. Knopf.
|Hurra, wir retten die Welt!||by Dirk
Maxeiner (in German)
A very readable common-sense book debunking many myths on catastrophic man-made globalwarming.
"Es gibt Wörter, die man nicht benutzen, Wahrheiten, die man nicht aussprechen, und Fragen, die man nicht stellen sollte"
|Human Impacts on Weather and Climate||by William R.
Cotton (Colorado State University) and Roger A. Pielke Sr. (University
of Colorado at Boulder). 2nd edition, 2007. Cambridge University Press.

The Erring Ways of Climatology
|The Satanic Gases||by Patrick J. Michaels &
Robert C. Balling Jr.
|Treibhauseffekt||by Dr. Gerd G.
Weber, Max-Planck Institut. 1992 (in German).
This older book contains a lot of still very valid reflections. For instance:
"Heute werden auf eine Weise Forschungsgelder verteilt und Berichte geschrieben, dass sich daraus eine positive Rückkopplungsschleife bildet, die allen Beteiligten Gewinne abwirft. Die Wissenschaftler bekommen mehr Forschungsgelder,, die Medien neue Empörungsgeschichten..., den Politikern erschliesst sich ihr Stimmenpotential."
