Roger Pielke Sr and Bishop Hill Discuss “If the IPCC was Selling Manmade Global Warming as a Product…”

If the IPCC was Selling Manmade Global Warming as a Product, Would the FTC Stop their deceptive Ads? is available in pdf and Kindle editions. An overview is provided in the above-linked post. Amazon also provides a Kindle preview that runs from the introduction through a good portion of Section 2. That’s about the first 15% of the book. Refer also to the introduction, table of contents, and closing in pdf form here.

Roger Pielke Sr. and Bishop Hill have written blog posts about my book. Roger’s was published back in February and Bishop Hill’s was posted a few days ago. They’re cross posted here in chronological order. If there are other blog posts out there on the blogosphere about my book, please let me know.

Many thanks to Roger Pielke, Sr. and Bishop Hill.

ROGER PIELKE, SR’s POST – Bob Tisdale’s Book “If the IPCC was Selling Global Warming as a Product, Would the FTC Stop Their Deceptive Ads?”

Bob Tisdale has published a book based on his insightful weblog posts, titled and available from

If the IPCC was Selling Global Warming as a Product, Would the FTC Stop Their Deceptive Ads?

His book is discussed at Watts Up With That and on Bob’s weblog.

I have a copy of his book and recommend it. Even if you do not agree with some (or even all) of his findings, he has provided information as to how to access the original data in order to do your own analysis in Chapter 9 titled

Basic Instructions for Downloading Climate Data and Creating Graphs

We need more such competent scientific presentations where the authors present details as to how to access the raw data, in this case by using the KNMI Climate Explorer, as well as to complete analyses using that data such as Bob has done. I also encourage Bob to pursue submitting his work to peer-reviewed journals.

Regarding Roger’s comments on “Section 9: Basic Instructions for Downloading Climate Data and Creating Graphs”, I’ve recently published a much shorter series of screen captures similar to those provided in that section. Refer to the post How You Can Confirm the SST Anomalies for the Indian and Pacific Ocean Subset have NOT WARMED for 17 Years.

BISHOP HILL’S POST – Bob’s book

One of the blogs I’ve been struggling to get the time to read for quite some time now is Bob Tisdale’s. This is Climate Audit territory – lots of graphs, lots of statistics, lots of reading to do before you can understand the full story. Like Climate Audit it’s a site that cries out for an introductory text to enable newbies to catch up with the story that has gone before.

Fortunately, Bob Tisdale has now produced a book, which I’m currently working my way through. There are still lots of graphs and lots of statistics, but it’s written in a good accessible fashion and I’m getting a great deal from it.

Buy the PDF here or Kindle versions here (US) or here (UK).

A QUICK CLOSING NOTE ABOUT KINDLE READERS

Free Kindle readers for PCs and Macs, and numerous other formats, are available from Amazon here. I was very pleased with the Kindle PC edition of my book. The 200+ illustrations present very well. The links operate. You can change the page format from one to two columns. Font size is adjustable, as is the background color. It’s got a full-screen mode and a search function.

HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Again, Roger Pielke, Sr. and Bishop Hill, thank you.

    Camburn, you’re welcome. And thank you for buying a copy (assumption on my part).

    Tell all your friends, local reporters who have climate blogs at newspapers, etc., please.
