The Global Warming, Carbon Dioxide Hoax: Easy to Read Proof That Climate Change Is Normal and Not Man-Made

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Global-Warming-Carbon-Dioxide-Hoax-...
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.

General Winter

https://www.amazon.co.uk/General-Winter-Grigory-Adamov-ebook...
To free the Northwest Passage of ice, one young scientist devises an ingenious plan to heat the Gulf Stream. But nothing so economically valuable, or so environmentally controversial, can be accomplished without making powerful enemies across the globe, and Sergei Lavrov doesn’t know who to trust. Lifelong friends and government allies are all suspect as the Great Arctic Works suffer one devastating blow after another. Major Dmitry Komarov of State Security knows it’s sabotage. Through the taiga forests and into the heart of Moscow, the Major chases an elusive figure across the frozen north to prove it. In an adventurous tale of science against the elements, General Winter reveals the cold brutality of the Russian Arctic and challenges the brightest minds to defeat it.

Global Warming: The Complete Briefing

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Global-Warming-Complete-John-Hought...
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.

This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate

https://www.amazon.co.uk/This-Changes-Everything-Capitalism-...
Naomi Klein, author of the #1 international bestsellers, The Shock Doctrine and No Logo, returns with This Changes Everything, a must-read on how the climate crisis needs to spur transformational political changeWe seem to have given up on any serious effort to prevent catastrophic climate change. Despite mounting scientific evidence, denialism is surging in many wealthy countries, and extreme fossil-fuel extraction gathers pace. Exposing the work of ideologues on the right who know the challenge this poses to the free market all too well, Naomi Klein also challenges the failing strategies of environmental groups. This Changes Everything argues that the deep changes required should not be viewed as punishments to fear, but as a kind of gift. It's time to stop running from the full implications of the crisis and begin to embrace them. Naomi Klein is an award-winning journalist, syndicated columnist and author of the international bestsellers, The Shock Doctrine and No Logo. She is a member of the board of directors for 350.org, a global grassroots movement to solve the climate crisis, a Puffin Foundation Writing Fellow at The Nation Institute, and a former Miliband Fellow at the LSE. She holds an honorary Doctor of Civil Laws from the University of King's College, Nova Scotia.

Treat Climate Change, Save the Earth: How to Prevent Flooding and Drought to Slow Global Warming (Treating the Symptoms of Climate Change Book 1)

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Treat-Climate-Change-Save-Earth-ebo...
Reviews for Treat Climate Change, Save the Earth: How to Prevent Flooding and Drought to Slow Global Warming"We all need to get this book, read it, and then get it into the hands of as many people as possible. This includes big business, small businesses, and most importantly local, state and federal government officials.""This book takes on a radical attitude towards our current crises, and is real food for thought.​It moves away from the blame culture, currently so prevalent within the media, and puts forward an honestly thought out blue print for moving forward and tackling the problem of Climate Change.""5 stars for the sheer audacity of 1 person trying to solve the biggest environmental challenge we face!"Have you ever been frantic with worry about your family and friends after a hurricane or wildfire destroyed their homes?Have you worried that all that we can seem to do so far is to debate whether climate change exists, whether it's mankind's fault, and whether anything should be done about it?Have you felt despair because while all of this debate continues, you or your family or your friends are standing waist deep in flood waters?Perhaps you're gazing out at your crops which are withering from drought?Perhaps you don't feel safe drinking the water that comes out of your tap due to nearby fracking projects?This book isn't a debate about climate change The facts described in nearly all of the global warming books takes care of doing that.This book is about realistic solutions that can be implemented globally to treat the symptoms of climate change!This is about a system that would enable us to act before the tragedies strike.The system I describe in my book can help: -Get flooding and drought under control -Help prevent wildfires -Begin to restore our melting glaciers -Avert sea-level rise -Leverage more accurate weather forecasting, and act before a storm hits -Deliver clean water where it is desperately needed -No longer depend only on underground sources of freshwater, allowing them to replenish themselves -Extend humanitarian aid in a way that will help countries to support themselves instead of being forced to rely on charityWe can build a system that can help with all of these problems, and run it on its own renewable energy!The system I've devised will take time and resources to build. But it also took time and resources to build pipelines to transport oil from the tar sands. And when those pipelines leak, the oil destroys land, kills wildlife, and cripples the livelihoods of the people living in that area!Wouldn't it be far better to use our resources to support our population and to protect wildlife?Wouldn't it be far better if this system can support itself with its own generated energy, and have the potential to also generate renewable energy for human use? We're already taking steps toward increasing how much we use renewable energy. Now it is time for us to live more in harmony with our planet instead of sucking all of the resources out of it.Ours is a rapidly growing population. Across our entire planet, humanity requires more to support itself.Yet at the same time, we have developed enough that we can begin to support the land that support us!I'm offering a real global solution in less than 100 pages!

Assuming Names: a con artist's masquerade (Criminal Mischief Book 1)

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Assuming-Names-masquerade-Criminal-...
When it was over, there were a lot of questions.The detectives were embarrassed but they still wanted answered, "How did a 15-year-old runaway successfully pose as a world travelled countess?"The newspapers turned it back on them, practically sneering, "How did she do it while under investigation by the FBI, DEA, and Interpol?"The Mafia had been demanding the same thing for six months, "What is your real name?"And the psychologists asked the question they always ask, "Why?"It’s the why of it that will keep a girl in trouble.Assuming Names is the true story of a young con artist. It’s the tale of a runaway that assumed the title of Countess and then went on to fool the FBI, DEA, and Interpol—as well as a number of other celebrities and institutions—with an elaborate tale of world intrigue.A NOTE FROM THE AUTHOR: Hello everyone. This is Tanya. You may find yourself reading my book and saying, “No, this did not happen.” You may be inclined to say it is too far-fetched and, quite frankly, impossible. I have provided evidence at my website that what I write is the truth. I mention it at the front of the book but it may be easy to overlook, so I am reiterating here.At my website are copies of the newspaper and magazine articles mentioned in the book. The articles are from the Austin American Statesman, The Dallas Morning News, and Woman’s World Magazine. They are all nationally recognized media for news. Previous reviewers were concerned I may have gone to Photoshop to create them, and while my book does paint me as the sort that would do such a thing, the reality is that those media institutions would sue me into submission before the cache could be cleared.In the end, you may not believe me, but you can surely believe what the papers wrote.

Drawdown: The Most Comprehensive Plan Ever Proposed to Reverse Global Warming

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Drawdown-Comprehensive-Proposed-Rev...
• New York Times bestseller •The 100 most substantive solutions to reverse global warming, based on meticulous research by leading scientists and policymakers around the world“At this point in time, the Drawdown book is exactly what is needed; a credible, conservative solution-by-solution narrative that we can do it. Reading it is an effective inoculation against the widespread perception of doom that humanity cannot and will not solve the climate crisis. Reported by-effects include increased determination and a sense of grounded hope.” —Per Espen Stoknes, Author, What We Think About When We Try Not To Think About Global Warming “There’s been no real way for ordinary people to get an understanding of what they can do and what impact it can have. There remains no single, comprehensive, reliable compendium of carbon-reduction solutions across sectors. At least until now. . . . The public is hungry for this kind of practical wisdom.” —David Roberts, Vox“This is the ideal environmental sciences textbook—only it is too interesting and inspiring to be called a textbook.” —Peter Kareiva, Director of the Institute of the Environment and Sustainability, UCLAIn the face of widespread fear and apathy, an international coalition of researchers, professionals, and scientists have come together to offer a set of realistic and bold solutions to climate change. One hundred techniques and practices are described here—some are well known; some you may have never heard of. They range from clean energy to educating girls in lower-income countries to land use practices that pull carbon out of the air. The solutions exist, are economically viable, and communities throughout the world are currently enacting them with skill and determination. If deployed collectively on a global scale over the next thirty years, they represent a credible path forward, not just to slow the earth’s warming but to reach drawdown, that point in time when greenhouse gases in the atmosphere peak and begin to decline. These measures promise cascading benefits to human health, security, prosperity, and well-being—giving us every reason to see this planetary crisis as an opportunity to create a just and livable world.

Merchants of Doubt: How a Handful of Scientists Obscured the Truth on Issues from Tobacco Smoke to Global Warming

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Merchants-Doubt-Handful-Scientists-...
The U.S. scientific community has long led the world in research on such areas as public health, environmental science, and issues affecting quality of life. These scientists have produced landmark studies on the dangers of DDT, tobacco smoke, acid rain, and global warming. But at the same time, a small yet potent subset of this community leads the world in vehement denial of these dangers.Merchants of Doubt tells the story of how a loose-knit group of high-level scientists and scientific advisers, with deep connections in politics and industry, ran effective campaigns to mislead the public and deny well-established scientific knowledge over four decades. Remarkably, the same individuals surface repeatedly-some of the same figures who have claimed that the science of global warming is "not settled" denied the truth of studies linking smoking to lung cancer, coal smoke to acid rain, and CFCs to the ozone hole. "Doubt is our product," wrote one tobacco executive. These "experts" supplied it. Naomi Oreskes and Erik M. Conway, historians of science, roll back the rug on this dark corner of the American scientific community, showing how ideology and corporate interests, aided by a too-compliant media, have skewed public understanding of some of the most pressing issues of our era.
