Overview

The first book on climate change that is fun to read! Using figures, cartoons, and whimiscal sidebars, Steve Goreham describes our crazy world, which is far down the primrose path of global warming fantisy. Contrary to popular consensus, climate change is natural and NOT caused by our cars.

But this book is not short on science. Goreham uses charts, graphs, and references to dozens of scientific papers to support his arguments. He shows that icecap melting, stronger storms, polar bear extinction, and many other climate fears are unfounded. At the same time, his large collection of zany pictures and quotes grabs the reader's interest.

"Goreham, the antidote for Gore!" --Doug Giles, Syndicated Radio Host

"It's all here. Replete with great graphics and much humor, Steve Goreham reveals the mountain of failed eco-predictions, rank green hypocrisies and outright fraud that currently masquerades in the guise of modern environmentalism and 'climate science'... The Mad, Mad, Mad World of Climatism is an easy-to-read, easy-to-understand expose of all the key facts behind the dirty 'green' politics of the greatest pseudo-science racket of our age." --Peter Glover, author, journalist, and International Associate Editor, Energy Tribune

"This is the first book written to make you laugh at the absurdity of man-made global warming—that is, until it makes you cry. If 250 pages of facts are too much, you can simply read the amusing cartoons and quotes on every page to fully understand how the world has been misled." --Jay Lehr, PhD, Science Director, The Heartland Institute

"I am extremely impressed with this work, easily the best of its kind I have ever read... an authoritative, well-referenced, but easy-to-understand summary of the climate scare and its dire implications for society and the environment." --Tom Harris, Executive Director, International Climate Science Coalition

"Interesting, accurate, compellingly readable, and directly relevant to one of today's most important political debates. What more needs to be said beyond, 'Buy this fascinating book!'" --Robert Carter, Australian Marine Geologist and Environmental Scientist

"Steve's new book is exactly what I hoped would be published. It makes climate science understandable to everyone. Finally, some common sense, presented in a way to inform, not to deceive." --Burt Rutan, Aerospace Engineer, Innovator, Entrepreneur

"Steve Goreham's insightful and readable analysis of the ideology of Climatism and its socialistic goals is an important addition to public understanding of both the facts and the critical importance of making the right decisions for America." --Harrison H. Schmitt, PhD, Geologist, former Senator and Apollo 17 Astronaut

"Goreham's book is an excellent, readable, comprehensive, and indispensable education for everyone. It should be required reading in all schools, universities, statehouses and Congress." --Edwin Berry, PhD, Physicist and Meteorologist

"Steve Goreham has provided the science, the motivations, and the examples of deceit that surround the man-made warming hypothesis. He leaves no excuse for the public and the policy makers to prolong the misguided effort to spend trillions of dollars trying to reduce the insignificant effect of CO2 on global climate change." --Leighton Steward, Geologist, Author, and Environmentalist

    This "book" is some kind of sick joke. I read bits and pieces but could not continue: it turned my stomach. It promotes a "Beavis & Butthead" style of smirking at science and scientists. It contains footnote numbers but not footnotes or references. You can almost tell that the people behind it were the same ones fighting the idea that smoking is bad for your health -- and nicotine is incredibly addictive (take it from me, it took me 30 years to quit). It absolutely lies about the positions of eminent climate scientists and people who think that melting Greenland and Antarctic is a bad idea: for example, it implies that both Al Gore and James Hansen reject the Milankovitch theory of orbital forcing as the best explanation for ice ages, saying that they hold that it is CO2. This is a lie of the first order: both Gore and Hansen know that ice ages are orbitally forced (about every 100,000 years) but along with almost all other scientists know that the magnitude of the temperature changes can only be explained when all factors -- including CO2 -- are taken into account. If you really want to know more, listen to registered Republican scientist Dr. Richard B. Alley by googling A23A and hitting the first link (his talk in front of a large audience of scientists at the American Geophysical Union 2009 Fall Meeting -- at which he received the prestigious Bjerknes award). If you enjoy being lied to so that you can feel better about driving your
    Hummer, then by all means get hold of this (Heartless Institute will send it to you free -- please do not buy it!).
