DAILY CALLER Book Review: “Scientists Conspired To Hide Obvious Flaws” … “Endless Series Of Hobgoblins”

Ball BookUncovering deceptions in the climate change debate

For more than a decade, the Heartland Institute has tried to explain to the public, in courteous terms, that the idea of a human-caused global warming catastrophe is a delusion, and that its proponents should not be allowed to waste the world’s economic resources through arrogant efforts to alter the planet’s climate.

Tim Ball, Ph.D., takes up the issue with strong words in his new book, The Deliberate Corruption of Climate Science. He argues, with overwhelming evidence, that in fact the global warming debate in the halls of science has been an unmitigated fraud perpetrated by people who no longer have the right to be called scientists. Their collective goals have been to…” Read more: http://dailycaller.com/uncovering-deceptions-in-the-climate-change8

    On February 5, 2007 Timothy Ball published a brief essay about “Global Warming is not due to human contribution of Carbon Dioxide” at: http://www.meaus.com/116-global-warming-myth.htm , stressing already:
    ___” Believe it or not, Global Warming is not due to human contribution of Carbon Dioxide (CO2). This in fact is the greatest deception in the history of science.”
    ___” The world has warmed since 1680, the nadir of a cool period called the Little Ice Age (LIA) that has generally continued to the present. These climate changes are well within natural variability and explained quite easily by changes in the sun. But there is nothing unusual going on.”
    ___” Since I obtained my doctorate in climatology from the University of London, Queen Mary College, England my career has spanned two climate cycles. Temperatures declined from 1940 to 1980 and in the early 1970’s global cooling became the consensus. This proves that consensus is not a scientific fact. By the 1990’s temperatures appeared to have reversed and Global Warming became the consensus.”

    It would be good if IPCC is now more impressed.

    “Professor Richard Fortey investigates the remains of ancient volcanic lake in Germany where stunningly well-preserved fossils of early mammals, giant insects and even perhaps our oldest known ancestor have been found.

    Among the amazing finds are bats as advanced and sophisticated as anything living today, more than 50-million-years-later; dog-sized ‘Dawn’ horses, the ancestor of the modern horse; and giant ants as large as a hummingbird”

    A three part series from the BBC. The last episode concerned the Messel pit, a 50 million year old fossil wonderland, then a TROPICAL RAINFOREST!!!

    Seems real global warming does’t mean the end of the world.

    From the review: ‘It is incredible that the IPCC and their manipulation of climate science continue to drive world energy and economic policies’.

    Today my newspaper (Volkskrant, front page) told that the Dutch State, in cooperation with the environmental lobby, subsidized electric cars for 3/4 of the price. I only have a bike (so I’m greener than Green), and my tax money is used for granting energy waisting cars to my country men.

      Mindert, what would a typical small EV like a Nissan Leaf cost in the Netherlands? It’s somewhere under 30k EUR here in Germany, maybe 25k; a comparable gasoline car is typically 10k (of course with a bigger range and faster refill; but just to compare the typical small commuter car class).

      Can I get dutch subsidies and re-import it to Germany?

    I have ordered my copy of the book from Amazon. With the purchase I was allowed to download a sample to kindle. I have now read the first three chapters and Lehr’s review is a good summary. Ball mentions, Lehr does not include the earlier predictions of doom of population growth by Thomas Malthus. According to Zubrin’s book, Merchants of Despair, Malthus’s thinking is one of the roots of Hitler’s regime and environmentalism at the same time. I would also recommend Chrichton’s novel State of Fear. It is a fast moving novel, and many of the characters can be recognised in the climate story.

  5. Margaret Smith

    I have already read this book and it is a great addition to my ‘climate’ bookshelf. I first saw Dr Tim Ball in “The Great Global Warming Scandal” which I recorded off the TV and later bought the DVD. I copied the recording I made and gave it to as many people as possible.

    This is a book that makes one angry and fearful for the future. Everyone should know this stuff and that no amount of falsification of the central meme will have any effect on these would-be dictators.

    The wise men from the IPCC tell Germany how the weather will be in 2100.

    Summers hotter, winters wetter; what we already heard from the Met Office.
    About 4 deg C hotter than the 1970ies IFF the world does not make a Global Carbon Control Treaty.

    IPCC fortunetellers state that the models have become much better . They predict exactly the same as always but are much more robust!

    That’s great news. I thought they just sit on their lard asses squandering my money.
