Dr. S. Fred Singer and Dennis Avery present —i n popular language supported by in-depth scientific evidence — the compelling concept that global temperatures have been rising mostly or entirely because of a natural cycle.
Using historic data from two millennia of recorded history combined with the natural physical records found in ice cores, seabed sediment, cave stalagmites, and tree rings, Unstoppable Global Warming argues that the 1,500 year solar-driven cycle that has always controlled the earth’s climate remains the driving force in the current warming trend.
Trillions of dollars spent on reducing fossil fuel use would have no effect on today’s rising temperatures. The public policy key, Singer and Avery propose, is adaptation, not fruitless attempts at prevention. Further, they offer convincing evidence that civilization’s most successful eras have coincided with the cycle’s warmest peaks.
With the added benefit of modern technology, humanity can not only survive global climate change, but thrive.
Praise for Unstoppable Global Warming
“The book’s greatest virtue is its authors’ use of concrete evidence. Singer and Avery cite over 100 scientific papers, pointing out that they excluded hundreds of others due to lack of space. These references cite physical evidence found in polar ice cores, sea sediment from all the oceans, fossilized plankton and pollen, tree rings, cave stalagmites, and even the tooth enamel of dead Vikings. All the evidence points to a definite temperature cycle of approximately 1500 years.
“Within these cycles, there are many temperature variations, more extreme than the current modest warming, that obviously have nothing to do with industrial carbon dioxide. The authors even cite strong evidence that we may be on the verge of another multi-decade cooling cycle.
“Read Unstoppable Global Warming if you are interested in the science and politics of climate change.
— Walter J. Brown
“Those who have adopted the religion of anthropogenic global warming will not like the material presented in this summary, however science does march on and experimental evidence overrules hypotheses even if embodied in expensive computer simulations.
“Everyone interested in global temperature trends will be well rewarded by reading this book.”
— Donald N. Anderson
“This book should be required reading for every journalist, politician, teacher, and everyone else because the failure to understand the subject of global warming will cause needless expense through bad allocation of limited financial resources.”
— Fred R. Braun
“I always tend to laugh out loud when the crowd insisting that global warming is a 100% by-product of industrial society try to shout down a book disagreeing with their point of view. This volume is a case in point. It provides some very interesting food for thought whether one agrees or disagrees. But then the Environmental-Left would probably put Avery on trial for crimes against Eco-Orthodoxy. …
“This is a good book that will fuel the great debate – but only if your mind is open enough to realize there are two sides to the discussion. If you mind is closed on thsi subject, look elsewhere.”
