For years climate alarmists with the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have intimidated non-scientists into thinking they had no business rejecting the “overwhelming consensus” that continued use of fossil fuels to provide energy dooms the planet to catastrophic global warming.
No more. Now scientific laymen have a clear, concise, easy-to-understand resource that can give them confidence that it’s those who cry “Consensus! Consensus” who are the real science deniers.
Cornwall Alliance Senior Fellow Dr. Roy Spencer’s new book Global Warming Skepticism for Busy People just could turn the tide!
One of the world’s top climate scientists, Roy W. Spencer starts with a brief overview of the reasons for skepticism. Then he poses “The Five Big Questions”:
- Is warming and associated climate change mostly human-caused?
- Is the human-caused portion of warming and associated climate change large enough to be damaging?
- Do the climate models we use for proposed energy policies accurately predict climate change?
- Would the proposed policy changes substantially reduce climate change and resulting damage?
- Would the policy changes do more good than harm to humanity?
