Dr Gerrit J. van der Lingen is a geologist and paleoclimatologist. Studying climate change in the past made him realise that the belief in modern catastrophic man-made global warming, caused by carbon dioxide, is not supported by sound science. He became involved in the debate between the belief in dangerous man-made global warming and science based on observations and actual measurements, a debate between ideology and proper science. For fifteen years he wrote articles, gave lectures and took part in oral and published debates. He has now collated these activities in this book. These "memoirs" provide a fascinating insight in the disagreements about this global obsession. Most information provided to the public about climate change comes from persons who study weather and weather processes, to whom a 150 year long temperature record represents "a long time". To Dr van der Lingen, 150 years represents just a single heartbeat of the geological history that provides the proper context within which to judge modern climate danger. Read this book not just for the intelligent perspective it provides on the global warming scam, but also because it is at the same time a rattling good account of some of the most fascinating aspects of the history of our planet Earth. Professor Bob Carter, Townsville, Australia - Author of "Climate: The Counter Consensus" and "Taxing Air" For many years Dr van der Lingen has been actively engaged in debunking the man-made global warming hype, exposing the facts as an antidote against the misinformation, bordering on climate propaganda, which is often presented in the mainstream media. The result of his endeavors can be found in this fine and easily accessible collection of essays, which is a must read for all who are interested in what is mistakenly called the `greatest threat to mankind'. Hans Labohm, Leimuiden, The Netherlands - Independent economist and lead author of "Man-Made Global Warming: Unraveling a Dogma". As a non-scientific layman who found himself absorbed into the `global warming' (a.k.a. `climate change') debate in 2006, I found I had a lot to learn from genuine experts in the related sciences, first Professor Augie Auer, then Prof Bob Carter, and then Dr Gerrit van der Lingen. As a geologist and paleoclimatologist, Gerrit has the rare skill of making complex issues immediately comprehensible to laypeople like me, presenting relevant facts with convincing and easily understandable clarity. Terry Dunleavy MBE, Auckland New Zealand - Co-founder New Zealand Climate Science Coalition; founding chairman, International Climate Science Coalition. There are many books available debunking today's cause célèbre of human-induced climate change - also known as `man-made global warming', but one of the most approachable and enjoyable to read is this collection of essays and articles by Dr. Gerrit van der Lingen. Dr. van der Lingen's arguments slice through the nonsense like a scythe, exposing it for what it is: the biggest, most expensive pseudo-scientific scam in history. Anyone who wants to know how and why a supposedly scientific debate morphed into a political movement motivated by a smorgasbord of agendas should read this book.

Dr James Hansen, the world's leading scientist on climate issues, speaks out for the first time with the full truth about global warming: the planet is hurtling to a climatic point of no return. Hansen - whose climate predictions have come to pass again and again, beginning in the 1980s when he first warned US Congress about global warming - is the single most credible voice on the subject worldwide. He paints a devastating but all-too-realistic picture of what will happen if we continue to follow the course we're on. But he is also a hard-headed optimist, and shows that there is still time to take the urgent, strong action needed to save humanity.

The bestselling author of Deep Economy shows that we're living on a fundamentally altered planet -- and opens our eyes to the kind of change we'll need in order to make our civilization endure. Twenty years ago, with The End of Nature, Bill McKibben offered one of the earliest warnings about global warming. Those warnings went mostly unheeded; now, he insists, we need to acknowledge that we've waited too long, and that massive change is not only unavoidable but already under way. Our old familiar globe is suddenly melting, drying, acidifying, flooding, and burning in ways that no human has ever seen. We've created, in very short order, a new planet, still recognizable but fundamentally different. We may as well call it Eaarth. That new planet is filled with new binds and traps. A changing world costs large sums to defend -- think of the money that went to repair New Orleans, or the trillions of dollars it will take to transform our energy systems. But the endless economic growth that could underwrite such largesse depends on the stable planet we've managed to damage and degrade. We can't rely on old habits any longer. Our hope depends, McKibben argues, on scaling back -- on building the kind of societies and economies that can hunker down, concentrate on essentials, and create the type of community (in the neighborhood, but also on the Internet) that will allow us to weather trouble on an unprecedented scale. Change -- fundamental change -- is our best hope on a planet suddenly and violently out of balance. From the Hardcover edition.

The history of nations is a history of haves and have-nots, and as we approach the millennium, the gap between rich and poor countries is widening. In this engrossing and important new work, eminent historian David Landes explores the complex, fascinating and often startling causes of the wealth and poverty of nations. The answers are found not only in the large forces at work in economies: geography, religion, the broad swings of politics, but also in the small surprising details. In Europe, the invention of spectacles doubled the working life of skilled craftsmen, and played a prominent role in the creation of articulated machines, and in China, the failure to adopt the clock fundamentally hindered economic development. The relief of poverty is vital to the survival of us all. As David Landes brilliantly shows, the key to future success lies in understanding the lessons the past has to teach us - lessons uniquely imparted in this groundbreaking and vital book which exemplifies narrative history at its best.
