Climate Change: The Facts 2017 contains 22 essays by internationally-renowned experts and commentators, including Dr Bjorn Lomborg, Dr Matt Ridley, Professor Peter Ridd, Dr Willie Soon, Dr Ian Plimer, Dr Roy Spencer, and literary giant Clive James. The volume is edited by Dr Jennifer Marohasy, Senior Fellow at the Institute of Public Affairs. Fourteen of the contributors currently hold or have held positions at a university or a scientific research organisation. Dr Jennifer Marohasy said, "Climate Change: The Facts 2017 presents the case for climate change policies to be based on scientific evidence and it reveals how many of the potential policy responses to climate change are often wildly disproportionate compared to their potential cost." "However, our understanding of how the climate operates is incomplete and it is critically important to challenge the view that the planet is facing a global warming catastrophe." "Climate Change: The Facts 2017 addresses a range of issues including the science of climate change, the homogenisation and manipulation of temperature data, the economic and social impact of climate change policy proposals, and the way climate change is presented by the media and portrayed in popular culture," said Dr Marohasy.

CLIMATE CHANGE: Climate Science Facts & Fiction, & Tackling Global WarmingClimate change is here. And it looks as though it is going to stay. We are experiencing its effects already, but the evidence suggests that matters will only get worse. Those following the news this year, in 2017, will be familiar with the impact of hurricanes on the northern West Indies.Nations have been destroyed, people killed as landfall was made by successive storms in a short period. The small island of Barbuda in particular suffered devastation. There was a very significant satellite image of the region reproduced in numerous newspapers. It showed a line of three hurricanes, the first having passed the West Indies, the second over it, north of Cuba, and the third about to hit. Climate change is already a serious threat to the lives of mankind. And, indeed as we will see later in this book, every other living occupant of the planet. Your reading will offer an insight into the causes and effects of climate change. It will provide case studies alongside practical guides as to how we can all help. It will also look at the climate change deniers, that group of often powerful people who fly in the face of accepted research in an attempt to justify their continued use of fossil fuel. They frequently seek justification for their pumping of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. If, like many people, you are already concerned by the risks of climate change, this book will provide hard evidence to support your worries. If you are a denier, it will aim to present enough information to make you question your views.

"The climate scare ends with this book." —SEAN HANNITY "This book arms every citizen with a comprehensive dossier on just how science, economics, and politics have been distorted and corrupted in the name of saving the planet." —MARK LEVIN Less freedom. More regulation. Higher costs. Make no mistake: those are the surefire consequences of the modern global warming campaign waged by political and cultural elites, who have long ago abandoned fact-based science for dramatic fearmongering in order to push increased central planning. The Politically Incorrect Guide to Climate Change gives a voice -- backed by statistics, real-life stories, and incontrovertible evidence -- to the millions of "deplorable" Americans skeptical about the multibillion dollar "climate change" complex, whose claims have time and time again been proven wrong.

Author Richard S. Dillon tackles the divisive subject of global warming in his new book, Scientific Facts and Climate Change. Readers will gain a better understanding of key climate change concepts-like what scientists mean when they discuss the "greenhouse effect" and how to differentiate between "good" and "bad" science- in easy-to-read terms. Dillon tackles a broad range of concepts, exploring why carbon dioxide is not an "effective" greenhouse gas, how the way in which the solubility of carbon dioxide may explain the relationship between it and water temperature, and how carbon dioxide absorbs infrared radiation by bending and stretching the oxygen-carbon bonds. Dillon also dissects the various reports of global weather-related disasters, including recent worldwide hurricanes, floods, and droughts, to determine their root causes and better focus climate debate. No factor is too big or small to be considered in Scientific Facts and Climate Change. Looking outward and upward, Dillon even examines the effect of the sun and cosmos on the global climate, drawing a correlation between the number of sunspots and major weather patterns seen in the past. Ready to reconsider the world around you? This eye-opening look at climate change is a great place to start.

Although it is generally accepted that the climate is changing for the worse and that human activities are a major contributing factor in that change, there is still only marginal response to the challenge posed by climate change. The reasons behind this limited response are becoming clearer through the recognition that climate change is not just a set of physical science facts, but it is also part of a series of complex social processes. Consequently, this book is important in providing social science perspectives on a range of attempts to adjust human activity to reduce its environmental impact. These attempts vary from the changing of the dress code in Japanese offices to the creation of zero-carbon, gated communities in Bangalore, India. Taken together, the contributions to this book provide timely insights into the complexities of saving the planet through human endeavour. This book was originally published as a special issue of Contemporary Social Science.

Alan Moran has been a prominent writer on regulatory matters for thirty years. He was the inaugural head of the Australian governments' regulatory review office and researched the issues in "think tanks." Working outside and within the Victorian Government, he was a major participant in the disaggregation of that state's monopoly electricity business into a dozen independent parts and in the creation of what later became the National Electricity Market. Dr Moran has written many books and articles on the interface between climate change, energy and economic well-being. These include editing and contributing to the 2015 best seller, Climate Change: the facts. Climate Change: treaties and policies in the Trump era, is an examination of: - The setting of the climate change agenda - Its position in the international arena where nations have agreed to treaties and agreements that have increasingly placed pressures on governments to take actions in conformance with their provisions - The developments leading to the 2015 Paris agreement on climate change, which incorporated governments' "Intended Nationally Determined Contributions" (INDCs) on abatement of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases - The costs nations are actually and prospectively incurring in meeting their INDCs and in other measures designed to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions - President Trump's withdrawal from the Paris agreement and other nations' responses. The book foreshadows the collapse of the Paris agreement and gradual, if not abrupt, dismantling of the costly measures it entails - primarily involving forcing consumers to subsidise wind and solar energy.
