Dad, Why Are You A Global Warming Denier?: A Short Story That’s Right for the Times

Dad, Why Are You A Global Warming Denier? by Bob Tisdale is only available, and will only be available, from Amazon in Kindle reader format.

Its introduction begins:

I penned the following short-story, set in the year 2017, as a series of conversations between a twentysomething daughter and her mid-50s father. The father is a heretic of the church of catastrophic human-induced global warming/climate change.  The daughter, Anna, is a believer.

This work includes quotes from the IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change) and a well-respected politician. It also includes 22 illustrations, most of which are in color. And there are hyperlinks for those of you using Kindle readers where hyperlinks will work. 

To put that in perspective, the hyperlinks worked on my Kindle Paperwhite, all but the links to .pdf documents, which were not supported.

Dad, Why Are You A Global Warming Denier? is more than 26,000-words long—way too long for a blog post.

The work also includes a very basic, but extremely important aspect of El Niño events that I don’t believe I’ve ever presented before in a blog post or in my free ebook on ENSO. But I do recall mentioning that aspect in a few passing blog comments over the years.

I’ve also included numerous quotes from Margaret Thatcher’s memoire Statecraft, all from the heading of Hot Air and Global Warming, many of which I have not been able to find readily online, but they are definitely worth reading.

As I wrote in the closing comments of the short story, I also have to thank the very dear friend who edited this short story. She made it much, much easier to read.  As in the past, she has asked to remain anonymous due to the political nature of the global warming debate.  Any remaining typos and grammatical errors are mine, not hers.

I had a lot of fun writing Dad, Why Are You A Global Warming Denier?  I hope you learn something, many things, from it while having fun reading it.

    Hi Bob,
    I’m glad you’re back again. Happy New Year!
    I bought your new book now and I start reading at once (it doesn’t matter that it’s after midnight in Germany).


  6. Bob Tisdale says:

    Happy New Year to you and yours.

    Hi Bob,
    after reading about half of your new book I can only congratulate for that clear and easy to understand explanation what’s going wrong with climate science.
    I’d wish that a lot of people will read it and get insight about how we are manipulated by politicians, fanatics and climate “scientists” who drop their scientific integrity to advance their career. This is not the scientific ethics I learned when I studied Physics 35-40 years ago.

    In Germany the situation may be even worse because the environmental activists have much influence and only few people are well informed. It would be so good and eye-opening if there were a German version of your excellent book.


  9. Dave Fair says:

    Everybody: Read Bob’s previous works to get much more detail on the topics of his latest book. Must reads for those interested in SST’s, ENSO, etc.
