This book seeks to separate fact from fiction in the global-warming debate. The author begins by describing the history of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and many other conferences, and their dire predictions on global temperatures, rainfall, weather and climate, while highlighting confusion and sensationalism media reports. He then lays out the "heretical" scientific case of the sizable skeptical scientific community who challenge the accepted wisdom.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
Aus den Rezensionen:

"… Als Professor für Klimatologie … ging Leroux dieser Entdeckung nach, indem er eine Vielzahl von Satellitenphotos auswertete. … Der … Klimatologe wirft seinen Zunftkollegen in einer ... grundlegenden Auseinandersetzung mit der These von der ‘Globalen Erwärmung‘ vor, … überkommene Vorstellungen von den Triebkräften des Wettergeschehens kritisch in Frage zu stellen …Demgegenüber hat Leroux Ansatz, … den Vorteil, die seit den 70er Jahren ohne Zweifel wachsende Zahl von Wetterextremen nachprüfbar erklären zu können …"

(Edgar Gärtner, in: Schweizer Monatshefte Zeitschrift für Politik Wirtschaft Kultur, 2006, Vol. 86, Issue 11-12, S. 57 f.)
