Reviews

"If you have an interest in global warming, but are intimidated by equations and scientific terminology, this book is for you. The author explores the philosophy of global warming (and cooling), examines the limitations of global numerical models for which all alarmist statements are based, and discusses the economics of alternative actions that might be pursued. This book is an excellent read!" -- Neil L Frank Former Director National Hurricane Center "Climate Confusion is the best book length treatment of global warming science that is available to the literate citizen. The title says it all. Spencer explains the broad agreement over the existence of some climate change and the existence of some human role, but he also explains why these have little to do with the implausible and overheated projections of environmental disaster. The author thus cuts through all the rhetorical brickbats of "denialism" and "salvationism" to allow the citizen to reach rational conclusions. Despite a light touch, Spencer does not pull punches when it comes to unclothing the moral pretenses of many in the environmental movement--pretenses often disguising some truly immoral agendas." &mdas Richard S. Lindzen Alfred P. Sloan Professor of Atmospheric Sciences, Massachusetts Institute of Technology "An outstanding discussion of the many scientific, political and religious problems associated with the acceptance that humans are the primary cause of global warming. A must read for anyone wanting a full and balanced understanding of the global warming debate." &mdas William M. Gray Professor Emeritus, Department of Atmospheric Science Colorado State University "Roy Spencer's Climate Confusion is needed to put the global warming hysteria in its rightful place. He has done a yeoman's job in making the issue understandable and accessible to the general public without a sacrifice in the rigor of his arguments." &mdas Walter E. Williams John M. Olin Distinguished Professor of Economics George Mason University
