If you are a follower of Climate Change Dispatch, my book Sunlight on Climate Change: A Heretic’s Guide to Global Climate Hysteria will readily affirm what you already know.
But I’d like to tell you about the book because you may find it’s worth sharing with people outside the scientific community whose only source of information is the media.
My book reaches out to the large segment of our society who as good citizens are concerned about climate change, but as intelligent persons are doubtful of the declarations of an existential climate threat.
Most default to the majority view of human-caused climate change based on perceived common wisdom rather than an understanding of the science.
If you have tried to explain climate science to these non-science persons, their eyes begin to roll somewhere between the second law of thermodynamics and the logarithmic relationship between global warming and the concentration of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere.
My book uses analogies and stories to define those concepts in language that is easy to understand and has been consistently reviewed as entertaining to read.
Rather than avoid or dumb down the hard science, it is addressed in detail in the first three chapters of the book.
Chapter one is a trial scene. The prosecutor’s case is right out of the mainstream media headlines, and the defense must counter each accusation and build his own case while simultaneously educating a skeptical jury.
The second chapter explains solar dynamics, the Ice Ages, the formation of clouds, and the physical observations that variations in the sun have caused climate change within recorded human history.
The third chapter is the story of Mr. Dryas, a 12,000-year-old man who witnessed and adapted to climate change since the Last Glacial Period. Using multi-discipline science, we can reconstruct that over 90% of the last 10,000 years were warmer than what we’re experiencing today.
With this new foundation in classical science, Chapter 4 takes the reader to the main source of the information being disseminated by the media: the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
A comparison of the scientific method to the apparent IPCC method makes it glaringly evident that the IPCC’s methods are not scientific and that their “scientific facts” are opinion only.
The reader is then invited to reinterpret basic data provided in simple graphs to conclude there is no existential climate threat.
This is followed by an examination of how the IPCC is influenced by politics, borrowing from the views of scientist/politician Margaret Thatcher.
I examine how politics influenced the omission, alteration, and fabrication of evidence used to create climate hysteria, and conclude that the IPCC is an organization beset by an integrity and credibility crisis.
In the last part of the book, the reader is invited to take the perspective of a heretic— one who does not accept an idea when proof of it does not exist. (A denier does not accept an idea even when proof of it does exist.)
Chapter 5 looks at common government initiatives to reduce carbon dioxide emissions that were not thought all the way through; I call them The Good, The Bad, and the Ugliest.
More heresy is presented in Chapter 6 where ten common mainstream media news stories promoting a climate emergency are refuted, the biggest one being the 97% scientific consensus claim on climate change.
The final chapter explains why the Paris Agreement will fail and presents my humble yet sincere plan to save the planet.
My book is an entertaining way you can share the truth about climate change with the non-scientist. Climate Discussion Nexus agrees: “… very readable Sunlight on Climate Change: A Heretic’s Guide to Global Climate Hysteria we recommend for the concerned but open-minded young person on your gift list…”
Dare them to know, and to have the courage to use their own understanding.
