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. Joe Fone, Christchurch, New Zealand - Author of `Climate Change: Natural or Manmade?'

This book explains how investor behavior, from mental accounting to the combustible interplay of hope and fear, affects financial economics. The transformation of portfolio theory begins with the identification of anomalies. Gaps in perception and behavioral departures from rationality spur momentum, irrational exuberance, and speculative bubbles. Behavioral accounting undermines the rational premises of mathematical finance. Assets and portfolios are imbued with “affect.” Positive and negative emotions warp investment decisions. Whether hedging against intertemporal changes in their ability to bear risk or climbing a psychological hierarchy of needs, investors arrange their portfolios and financial affairs according to emotions and perceptions. Risk aversion and life-cycle theories of consumption provide possible solutions to the equity premium puzzle, an iconic financial mystery. Prospect theory has questioned the cogency of the efficient capital markets hypothesis. Behavioral portfolio theory arises from a psychological account of security, potential, and aspiration.

In this weaving of radical political economy, Omnia Sunt Communia sets out the steps to postcapitalism. By conceptualising the commons not just as common goods but as a set of social systems, Massimo De Angelis shows their pervasive presence in everyday life, mapping out a strategy for total social transformation. From the micro to the macro, De Angelis unveils the commons as fields of power relations – shared space, objects, subjects – that explode the limits of daily life under capitalism. He exposes attempts to co-opt the commons, through the use of code words such as 'participation' and 'governance', and reveals the potential for radical transformation rooted in the reproduction of our communities, of life, of work and of society as a whole.

Wer sich Veränderungen stellt und sie erfolgreich meistert, kann Großes erreichen. Der Eisberg schmilzt. Die Pinguinkolonie ist in Gefahr. Doch zunächst will keiner die schlimme Botschaft hören. Diese Parabel aus dem Tierreich hat die Kraft, uns die Augen zu öffnen. Und nicht nur dies: Das Pinguin-Prinzip vermittelt Strategien für Erfolg im Berufs- und Alltagsleben. Die Pinguine machen uns vor, wie wir in prekärer Lage Mut zu Neuem fassen, schwierige Situationen meistern und auf unkonventionellen Wegen unsere Ziele erreichen können. Nie taute das Eis so schnell wie heute. Aber keine Bange: Wer nicht fliegen kann, kann schwimmen lernen! »Egal ob Sie Ihr eigenes Leben managen, Firmenchef oder Schüler sind – jeder kann von dieser Geschichte etwas lernen!« Spencer Johnson, Autor des Bestsellers »Die Mäuse-Strategie für Manager«
