number one in climate and environment …

The saying goes, “put your money where your mouth is”. I did that here. It even got my name on the back cover along with a whole lot of others. This book just reached the Number 1 seller on the Climate list and Number 1 on the Environment list:

A bit of a thrill. Mark Steyn reports the good news:

I’ve had a fun time out on the Earth Day airwaves talking about Climate Change: The Facts. That’s the new book featuring me and some of the world’s most eminent scientists on the state of the climate debate as we prepare to enter the third decade of the global-warming pause. And I’m thrilled to find that the book is currently Number One on the Climatology Hit Parade, ahead of Naomi Klein, Naomi Oreskes and any number of Naomis, and also Number One on the Environmental Policy Hot 100.

To order your own copy, go here. It contains a handy list of dud predictions and some penetrating remarks about them. Or so I felt.

Dr Richard Lindzen’s first paragraph is telling.

Global warming is about politics and power rather than science. In science, there is an attempt to clarify; in global warming, language is misused in order to confuse and mislead the public.

I heartily concur. Comrade Gillard is the first that I heard using the phrase ‘carbon pollution’. That confirmed for me that I was a skeptic. Carbon dioxide is not, and never can be, pollution.

An excellent book, very readable, and understandable for the laymen amongst us.

    Tom, just received email from CSIRO, part of which reads:
    1. Extremes Explorer
    Thanks to one of our NRM colleagues we have become aware of a strange glitch in some plots available from the Extremes Explorer. The plots for 1-in-20 Year Hottest Day contained an error. Consequently, we have turned these data off and are currently tracing the source of the error. Note that this issue does not affect the plots provided in the Technical and Cluster Reports – only those that were available from the Extremes Explorer tool. If you have previously downloaded these plots, please discard them. We will advise when the corrected data are available
    Thought it might interest you…….regards, John
