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

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

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.

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.

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!

Climate Change: The Facts 2017

https://www.amazon.co.uk/Climate-Change-Facts-Anthony-Watts-...
PLEASE NOTE FULL COLOUR GRAPHS BEST READ ON KINDLE APP (MAY BE DIFFICULT TO INTERPRET IN GREYSCALE ON KINDLE DEVICES)There are certain things best not discussed with neighbours over the fence, at barbeques and at gatherings of the extended family; these topics used to include sex and politics, but more recently climate change has become a sensitive issue and has, consequently, crept onto the best-to-avoid list. At the same time as climate change has assumed this status, it has become a topic more likely to be included in a church sermon. Indeed, while once considered the concern of scientific institutions, climate change is now increasingly incorporated into faith-based initiatives with even Pope Francis weighing in, issuing an encyclical on the subject as explained in chapter 16 by Paul Driessen.There are those who believe Pope Francis, and admire another climate change exponent, Al Gore – who marketed An Inconvenient Truth with comment, ‘the fact of global warming is not in question’ and that ‘its consequences for the world we live in will be disastrous if left unchecked’. And then there are the die-hard sceptics who dare to doubt. Many claim that these climate sceptics and their support base have an undue political influence, successfully thwarting attempts to implement necessary public policy change.This book is a collection of chapters by so-called climate sceptics. Each writer was asked to write on an aspect of the topic in which they are considered to have some expertise. None of them deny that climate change is real, but instead, they point out how extremely complex the topic of Earth’s climate is, with some of the contributors also querying the, often generally accepted, solutions.As you will see, this is not a book with just one message, except perhaps that there is a need for more scrutiny of the data, and of our own prejudices. This book’s reason for being is to give pause for thought, and to throw some alternative ideas and considerations into the mix.

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.

AD2516 - After Global Warming

https://www.amazon.co.uk/AD2516-Global-Warming-Noel-Hodson-e...
Entered for The Whitbread First Novel Prize and reviewed by Brian Aldiss in The Times & The Guardian, who dubbed the author "That distinguished futurist". AD2516 depicts the world re-born after the 2012 floods and pandemics in Noel Hodson's first tale, OUT OF THE DEPTHS. It is a good read - amusing and on many levels - that predicts what life will be like in the interconnected communities relying on quantum computing or The Q Field. The future science, economics and societies are all realistically based in today's achievements. It offers hope and a great life, in a world that has rebuilt New York and functions without money, where people live for 180 years. Engaging and intriguing, it lasts just about as long as a transatlantic flight.
