My friend Marc Morano of Climate Depot has a new book out now “The Politically Incorrect Guide® to Climate Change” which is one of many books in the The Politically Incorrect Guide® series that are now available from Regnery Publishing.
I had an early review copy, and here is what I wrote about the book, listed in the beginning section of the book:
“This book covers the history of climate, from the global cooling ‘coming ice age’ scare of the 70s to the ‘we have just a few years left to save the planet’ that characterizes the current global warming scare. Written in a light reading style, virtually every page is meticulously referenced with sources for the points he makes. Love him or hate him, Morano is very effective in conveying the history and the climate flim-flammery under the guise of science that has been going on the last few decades, mostly thanks to huge government funding of climate science. It reads like a postmortem verification of President Eisenhower’s farewell address, which warned of the ‘military-industrial complex,’ but also said, ‘The prospect of domination of the nation’s scholars by Federal employment, project allocations, and the power of money is ever present and is gravely to be regarded.’”
— ANTHONY WATTS, publisher of WattsUpWithThat, the world’s most viewed climate-themed website
The book is chock-full of history, and in page after page, points out how climate science has not just been a series of missteps, but an outright colossal failure of the scientific method because it has come to be so highly politicized. As I referenced above, money does that. Morano makes ample use of the work here at WUWT, and references many of our best essays throughout the book.
I particularly liked this bit of history, one I hadn’t read before.
The world is running a fever, and the effects will be dire. As another commentator observed,
Snows are less frequent and less deep. They do not often lie, below the mountains, more than one, two or three days, and very rarely a week. They are remembered to have been formerly frequent, deep and of long continuance. The elderly inform me the earth used to be covered with snow about three months in every year. The rivers, which then seldom failed to freeze over in the course of the winter, scarcely ever do now. This change has produced an unfortunate fluctuation between heat and cold in the spring of the year which is very fatal to fruits.
This same observer also noted,
“I remember that when I was a small boy, say 60 years ago, snows were frequent and deep in every winter.”
Who said that? Al Gore? Leonardo DiCaprio? Nope. That’s Thomas Jefferson, in his 1799 book Notes on the State of Virginia.”
It just goes to show, that even before the industrial revolution started around 1850, before the world saw an invasion of big, bad, carbon belching machines, the climate was changing just like it always has. In today’s political climate, Thomas Jefferson would be labeled a “denier”.
Recently, we were all saddened by the death of our friend John Coleman. In the months preceding his death, he wrote the foreword for this book, and he says it all. I’ll just leave it in his capable hands.
Foreword by John Coleman.
Don’t worry about “climate change,” says Marc Morano—there is no significant manmade global warming.
Are you kidding me? We all know that the icecaps are melting, the oceans are about to flood our cities, and more and more superstorms are happening. And the experts are certain that mankind’s use of fossil fuels is causing it all. We have all the facts; right?
The truth is that there is a debate about climate change but it has been very one-sided. With the U.S. government, all the scientific organizations, Al Gore, the Science Guy, Hollywood, the Democratic Party, and the United Nations all behind the bad news that our use of fossil fuels is destroying the climate of Earth, anyone on the other side of the debate finds themselves behind the eight ball. Peeking out from behind the eight ball is Marc Morano. In this great book he begins his comprehensive review of the debate about global warming by chatting about the history of climate scares in centuries past—and goes on to decisively debunk the current climate scare. By the time he’s done, you will realize you’ve been hoaxed. Climate change has become a scam.
