Thanks to “Jack’s Newswatch” for posting a comment below that called our attention to a new book entitled, “Unstoppable Global Warming: Every 1500 Years,” by Dennis T. Avery and S. Fred Singer. Here’s what our commenter said, in part:
“There is a wonderful new book, “Unstoppable Global Warming: Every 1,500 Years,” by distinguished climate physicist Fred Singer and award-winning environmental economist Dennis Avery. The conclusion of their book in a nutshell is that, yes, the world is getting a bit warmer, but this is just the natural cycle. They provide overwhelming evidence this warming would occur with or without mankind increasing CO2 emissions or doing anything else. The good news is that if we realize we cannot stop global warming, and concentrate on constructively dealing with the problems it causes — which are all manageable at reasonable cost — and then enjoy the benefits, mankind will do just fine.
We have already had two cycles in recorded history; the Roman warming (200 B.C. to 600 A.D.) which was a very prosperous period, and the medieval warming (900 to 1300) during which farms were created in Greenland and Iceland. The modern warming period began about 1850, well before mankind was producing massive amounts of CO2.”
“Singer and Avery present in 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. Unstoppable Global Warming explains why we’re warming, why it’s not very dangerous, and why we can’t stop it anyway.”
For anyone who believes that there’s anything remotely approximating balance in the mainstream media (MSM) on this topic, this ought to help put that fiction to rest. Here is a book by two respected scientists that runs counter to the hysteria. Had the book’s thesis supported the hysteria, you can bet everyone from Katie to the Constantly Negative News network would have pre-empted regular news to make way for a special segment. But here’s a thoughtful book by two respected scientists that gets nary a peep in the MSM. Don’t wanna wreck that buzz. Let’s not let the facts get in the way of a good story.
We’re certainly not scientists, but we are skeptical of media-induced hysteria because we’ve seen far too much of it over the years, from global cooling to alar. In the end, it all amounted to nothing. As the UN conference in Nairobi concludes, we just want to remind everyone that there is another side to this story — a serious, scientific and scholarly side. Just don’t expect to read all about it outside of the blogosphere.
Unfortunately, for Al Gore and his amen chorus in the Fourth Estate (hey, most of them voted for him, right?), the truth is all too inconvenient.
