General Winter

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.

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

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.

This Changes Everything: Capitalism vs. the Climate

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.

Global Warming: The Complete Briefing

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.

Human Caused Global Warming

Human Caused Global Warming

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Human-Caused-Global-Warming-Ball-eb...
This book examines the claims of human induced global warming made by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) using proper journalistic and investigative techniques. It explains how it was a premeditated, orchestrated deception, using science to impose a political agenda. It fooled a majority including most scientists. They assumed that other scientists would not produce science for a political agenda. German Physicist and meteorologist Klaus-Eckart Puls finally decided to look for himself. Here is what he discovered.Ten years ago I simply parroted what the IPCC told us. One day I started checking the facts and data—first I started with a sense of doubt but then I became outraged when I discovered that much of what the IPCC and the media were telling us was sheer nonsense and was not even supported by any scientific facts and measurements. To this day I still feel shame that as a scientist I made presentations of their science without first checking it.…scientifically it is sheer absurdity to think we can get a nice climate by turning a CO2 adjustment knob.This book uses the same approach used in investigative journalism. It examines the Who, What, Where, When, Why, and How.

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

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.

The Real Global Warming Disaster: Is the obsession with 'climate change' turning out to be the most costly scientific blunder in history?

The Real Global Warming Disaster: Is the obsession with 'climate change' turning out to be the most costly scientific blunder in history?

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Real-Global-Warming-Disaster-scient...
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.
