Hot Talk Cold Science: Global Warning's Unfinished Debateby S. Fred Singer, Frederick Seitz (Foreword by)
Designed to appeal to lay readers and specialists alike, this concise, scientific analysis refutes the pessimistic global warming scenarios depicted in the media. In addition to covering better-known topics such as the climate record, computer models, and the effects of clouds, oceans, and greenhouse gases, the book also provides an in-depth examination of less frequently discussed issues including the inaccuracies in historical climate data, the limitations of attempting to model climate on computers, solar variability and its impact on climate, and factors that could mitigate any human impacts on world climate. Potential upsides related to global warming and the extreme financial consequences that economically disadvantaged groups and nations would suffer as a result of many of the proposed solutions are identified.
