Global Warming: A Case Study in Groupthink: How science can shed new light on the most important "non-debate" of our time (GWPF Report Book 28)
Christopher Booker looks back on the history of the global warming scare and considers how Irving Janis's seminal work on "groupthink" can help us understand how climate science has lost its way and the violent reactions of climatologists to those who question the "consensus".

The Global Warming, Carbon Dioxide Hoax: Easy to Read Proof That Climate Change Is Normal and Not Man-Made
Earth’s climate has always changed. 12,000 years ago most of North America was covered in over a mile of ice and the oceans were 400 feet lower! America has been warming ever since. We will continue to warm or we could go back into our current ice age.Ice ages are bad because food doesn’t grow well and billions of Humans will either starve or freeze to death. Warming is good because we all live and prosper.There is absolutely no evidence that Humans cause global warming. In fact, only the stars know if it will get hotter or colder and it is all up to that one star we call our sun.

The Real Global Warming Disaster: Is the obsession with 'climate change' turning out to be the most costly scientific blunder in history?
This original book considers one of the most extraordinary scientific and political stories of our time: how in the 1980s a handful of scientists came to believe that mankind faced catastrophe from runaway global warming, and how today this has persuaded politicians to land us with what promises to be the biggest bill in history.Christopher Booker interweaves the science of global warming with that of its growing political consequences, showing how just when the politicians are threatening to change our Western way of life beyond recognition, the scientific evidence behind the global warming theory is being challenged like never before.The book exposes the myth that the global warming theory is supported by a 'consensus of the world's top climate scientists'. It shows how the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is run by a small group of 'global warming' zealots, who have repeatedly rigged evidence to support their theory. But the politicians, pushed by the media, have so fallen for its propaganda that, short of dramatic change, our Western world now faces an unprecedented disaster.

Conspiracies: Conspiracy Theories: Government Cover Ups, Global Warming, Aliens & Unsolved Mysteries (Area 51, Unexplained Phenomena, Atlantis, The New World Order, False Flags, CIA, FBI)
There is no doubt that some conspiracy theories have more than a grain of truth in them; however, it can be very difficult, if not impossible, to know which ones are true and which ones are just theories. In fact, many cannot be proven either way.The internet has made the situation worse, once a conspiracy theory would be slowly built by those near the supposed events; over time spreading to a wider circle and slowly becoming part of common folklore. In fact, these types of conspiracy theory are constantly built on and elaborated to make them sound bigger and better than they previously were.However, now a theory can be suggested on the internet and be global within minutes; it does not need to be particularly plausible or even have much foundation in any actual event. Literally anyone can start the theory and watch it build. This makes it more difficult to assess whether there is any truth in a theory or not.This book is designed to look at how conspiracy theories come into existence, why they happen and what their purpose is. It also looks at the most famous government cover ups in history; there are many which are not mentioned but the ones that are should be enough to get you thinking.The book touches on global warming and whether this is a genuine concept or simply another conspiracy. It also looks at one of the most favourite conspiracy theories; aliens and whether they really exist and are already living amongst us.Finally, there are a range of mysteries which remain unsolved; some are responsible for conspiracy theories; some are simply mysteries in their own right. All of these have yet to be solved and may present just the challenge you are looking for.The aim of this book is not to prove or disprove a specific theory; many of them require detailed research and you will still not have a definitive answer. Instead, it is important to be aware of the theories which already exist and the importance of questioning preconceived facts. Just because something is marked as a conspiracy theory does not mean it did not happen, or that it did. You will need to make your own mind up on each theory!

How much of global warming is due to human activities? How far will it be possible to adapt to changes of climate? John T. Houghton's definitive, full colour, guide to climate change answers these questions and more by providing the best and latest information available, including the latest IPCC findings. The simple, logical flow of ideas gives an invaluable grounding in the science, as well as the physical and human impacts of climate change for undergraduate students across a wide range of disciplines. Accessible to both scientists and non-scientists, the text avoids mathematical equations and includes more technical material in boxes, while simple figures help students to understand the conclusions the science leads to without being overwhelmed by vast amounts of data. Questions for students to consider and test their understanding are included in each chapter, along with carefully selected further reading to expand their knowledge.

Are Chemtrails real or just made up by conspiracy theorists? Well, the information within this book will answer that question for you. The author has revealed that the government, under the control of the New World Order has been spraying Chemtrails into the atmosphere in conjunction with using SuperDARN facilities located throughout the world to alter the state of minds of the global population, and to telepathically communicate with them. He also reveals that “Smart Dust" is being sprayed within the atmosphere, which is known to the scientific community as (MEMS) or micro electro mechanical systems, Nano mites, miniaturized robots and sensors that can be absorbed through the skin, and once inside the body can do whatever they have been programmed to do.
