Climate_Books

These are some good climate skeptic books. Every single one is worth reading. Many of them are mandatory. Given that the modern self-styled climate consensus, have gone into full-scale climate alarmism and hysteria, anything which isn't a climate alarmist book technically qualifies as 'skeptic'. So at some stages the definition of skeptical is widened to include mainstream science which, strictly speaking, should never be anything less than skeptical.

As a rule, I favour detailed, carefully argued books with lots of evidence. They are in groups. I've called the first, largest group introductory, because I feel someone unversed in climate may start with one (or several) of these. The special topics group, often covers one topic in detail. 'Comprehensive' is almost reaching degree level.

Climate skeptic books
Introductory
Global Warming-Alarmists, Skeptics and Deniers: A Geoscientist Looks at the Science of Climate Change, by G. Dedrick Robinson and Gene D. Robinson III Good introduction by climate scientist.
Mirrors and Mazes: a guide through the climate debate, by Dr Howard Thomas BradyWritten by an award-winning climate scientist, who went on 4 expeditions to Antarctica.
Hubris: The Troubling Science, Economics, and Politics of Climate Change, by Michael Hart
Scientific Facts and Climate Change, by Dr. Richard Snowdon Dillon This is short and visual (with charts not cartoons); start here if you're in a hurry.
Climate Change: The Facts 2017, edited by: Jennifer Marohasy
Don't Sell Your Coat: Surprising Truths About Climate Change, by Harold Ambler Very smoothly written by a journalist who's studied and reported on climate for decades.
Climate: the Counter Consensus (Independent Minds), by Professor Robert Carter
The Global Warming Scam: and the Climate Change Superscam, by Vincent Gray Writen by a scientist who offically reviewed 4 of the 5 main IPCC reports. Scathing at times.
Heaven and Earth: Global Warming, the Missing Science, by Ian Plimer
Climate Change: The Facts (2015), edited by Dr John Abbot
The Inconvenient Skeptic: The Comprehensive Guide to the Earth's Climate, by John Kehr One of my favorites, and it's not even authored by a proper scientist, but by an engineer.
The Deliberate Corruption of Climate Science, by Tim Ball, PhD Tim Ball is one of the most influential skeptics, and The Man alarmist probably hate most because he pulls few punches.
Global Warming: The Human Contribution, by Jack Barrett This is strictly speaking not a skeptic book. Yet because Barrett has been ex-communicated from the 'climate consensus' for knowing too much about greenhouse gases, it is still worth reading.
The Great Global Warming Blunder: How Mother Nature Fooled the World’s Top Climate Scientists, by Roy W Spencer
The Dynamic Greenhouse Effect and the Climate Averaging Paradox, by Roy Clark I love this book, but you probably need to be a bit of a science nerd to fully appreciate it.
Special Topics
Green Tyranny: Exposing the Totalitarian Roots of the Climate Industrial Complex, by Rupert Darwall Looks at the close relationship between authoritarianism (German Fascism in this example) and environmental concerns. Darwall does not really detail why environmental 'solutions' are always driven by the elites and imposed on the masses. But it is fairly obviously a way of both imposing discipline and keeping the masses in check (don't want those proles/blacks/... breeding like rabbits is a general elitist concern).
Population Bombed!: Exploding the Link Between Overpopulation and Climate Change, by Pierre Desrochers, Joanna Szurmak This is almost the last word on Malthus and the domination of green thinking by Malthusian concerns. I'm spell-bound by it.
The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels, by Alex Epstein Alex is a philosopher who writes for people. This books says what it does 'on the tin'.
Searching for the Catastrophe Signal: The Origins of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, by Bernie Lewin There's more than one book looking at the evolution (of devolution?) of the IPCC - the UN's climate body. This does so in detail and explains how politicians gained so much power over scientists. So much so, that they were able to dictate to scientists what to think.
The Hockey Stick Illusion, by Andrew Montford Montford goes into detail the perversity of the Hockey-Stick graph which attempts to rewrite climate history. It reads almost like a crime thriller.
Comprehensive
Climate Change Reconsidered II - Physical Science, lead authors/editors: Craig D. Idso, Robert M. Carter, S. Fred Singer These 4 are all very detailed and comprehensive.
Global Warming - Myth or Reality?: The Erring Ways of Climatology, by Marcel Leroux If I have to pick one of them as my fave, it'll be Leroux's
Assessing Climate Change: Temperatures, Solar Radiation and Heat Balance, by Donald Rapp (Author)
Global Warming and Global Cooling: Evolution of Climate on Earth, by O. G. Sorokhtin, Leonid F. Khilyuk Ph. D., G. V. Chilingar
