“IF THE IPCC WAS SELLING MANMADE GLOBAL WARMING AS A PRODUCT…” Now Available in Kindle and pdf Editions

This is a sticky post.  New posts are provided below it.

 

If the IPCC was Selling Manmade Global Warming as a Product, Would the FTC Stop their Deceptive Ads? is now available for color versions of Kindle readers ($7.99US), and in its original .pdf edition ($10.00US).

The Product Description reads:

If the IPCC was Selling Manmade Global Warming as a Product, Would the FTC Stop their Deceptive Ads? has been published for color versions of Kindle due to its popularity in .pdf form.

The failings of the computer-based climate models used by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) are exposed in If the IPCC was Selling Manmade Global Warming as a Product, Would the FTC Stop their Deceptive Ads? The discussions are intended for readers without technical or scientific backgrounds, and they are presented with more than 200 color illustrations, which allow the 20th Century surface temperature data and the publically available data from the IPCC’s climate models to tell their stories.

Based on computer simulations of 20th Century global surface temperatures with and without anthropogenic greenhouse gases, the IPCC says the warming was most likely caused by increased concentrations of manmade greenhouse gases. But those climate models show no skill at being able to simulate the warming of global surface temperatures over the 20th Century. This is plainly visible in time-series graphs when the model outputs are compared to surface temperatures during the two warming periods and the two periods when surface temperatures leveled out or cooled slightly.

If the IPCC was Selling Manmade Global Warming as a Product, Would the FTC Stop their Deceptive Ads? also allows satellite-based sea surface temperature data to show how, where and why it has warmed over that past 30 years. It includes a detailed, introductory-level explanation of the natural climate phenomenon known as the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO) and describes how ENSO is misunderstood or misrepresented by some climate scientists. And it explains where, online, readers can find the surface temperature and climate model data, in easy-to-use formats, and how to reproduce the graphs in the book so the readers can confirm the results.

I’d never read a book with links on my PC version of Kindle, so I wasn’t sure if they would work. When I first uploaded If the IPCC was Selling Manmade Global Warming as a Product, Would the FTC Stop their Deceptive Ads? to Kindle Direct Publishing, I was happy to discover they did. And the colors for the 220 illustrations came through loud and clear.

If the IPCC was Selling Manmade Global Warming as a Product, Would the FTC Stop their Deceptive Ads?includes my most detailed, to date, description and documentation of the processes of the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (ENSO). In fact, almost 25% of the text and 55 of the illustrations in the book are devoted to ENSO.

And as a side note, when I started writing the book, I was toying with cover illustrations:

I’m glad I contacted Josh of CartoonsbyJosh for the cover art.

  5. News Tip – The Limitless Potential of the E-Cat: An Interview with Andrea Rossi

    Dear Bob

    I wanted to get in touch as we were fortunate enough to interview the media shy Andrea Rossi, creator of the E-Cat this week and i thought you and your readers may be interested in hearing what he had to say.

    Mr. Rossi appears to have produced the first working “cold” fusion device, or low energy nuclear reaction (LENR), with his Energy Catalyser (E-Cat) machine. The E-Cat machine could provide almost limitless, clean, cheap energy and could prove to be one of the greatest inventions of all time.

    You can read the full interview at: http://oilprice.com/Interviews/The-Limitless-Potential-of-the-E-Cat-An-Interview-with-Andrea-Rossi.html

    It’s quite a long interview as Mr Rossi answered over 40 questions.

    Some of the questions we asked Mr. Rossi take a look at:

    · Why it took so long for him to go public with his discovery.

    · How the E-Cat will produce energy costing $10/megawatt hour.

    · When he will release more detailed information on the E-Cat.

    · Why he believes international media coverage of the E-Cat has been so muted.

    · His feelings towards critics and the scientific community.

    · His manufacturing and distribution goals.

    · How the E-cat will help reduce mankind’s dependency on fossil fuels.

    · + Many more details on the e-cat, LENR and Rossi himself.

    The full interview is not available for publication – but we are happy for you to use excerpts with a link back to the source.

    The full interview is at: http://oilprice.com/Interviews/The-Limitless-Potential-of-the-E-Cat-An-Interview-with-Andrea-Rossi.html

    I hope you find the interview interesting.

    Best regards,

    James Stafford

    Gidday Bob – I have just run comparisons on the official versions land only CRUTem2 – 3 & 4 – global and NH – SH. Fascinating to see where the extra warm trend comes from for CRUTem4. – now that Dr Phil is back in charge.

    Gidday Bob – I have just compared the CRU versions of CRUT2, 3 & 4 land only –
    Dr Phil Jones back in drivers seat with CRUTem4 updated land only global temperature data – warms more than the UKMO CRUTem3 and with remarkable early outliers from Rio

    Bob,I will do a review when I have finished reading the kindle edition. I do note the one only review on Amazon, it does not sound like the reviewer has read it. Hopefully more readers will post reviews for you. Keep up the great work Bob, we do appreciate your efforts Have you seen the reviews on M Mann’s book, there is a lot, lots of spiting too. I did a review on it called tic tac toe?
