Contents Climate change happens -- "We are going to destroy the creation" -- Forcing : how warming gets started -- Feedback : how much warming results from the forcing -- How mother nature fooled the world's top climate scientists -- Global warming : satellite evidence for an alternative explanation -- Carbon dioxide : dangerous pollutant, or elixir of life? -- Out on a limb : predictions for the future
Note "The Great Global Warming Blunder provides a simple explanation for why forecasts of a global warming Armageddon constitute a major scientific faux pas: climate researchers have mixed up cause and effect when they have analyzed cloud behavior. Combining illustrations from everyday experience with state-of-the-art satellite measurements, Roy W. Spencer reveals how these scientists have been fooled by Mother Nature into believing that the Earth?s climate system is very sensitive to humanity?s production of carbon dioxide through the use of fossil fuels. He presents evidence that recent warming, rather than being the fault of humans, is a result of chaotic, internal natural cycles that have been causing periods of warming and cooling for thousands of years" --Cover, p. 2
