Two very good books dealing with the carbon dioxide fraud are "The Deliberate Corruption of Climate Science" by Tim Ball and "The Hockey Stick Illusion: Climategate and the Corruption of Science" by A. W. Montford. It is my guess that the CAGW true believers won't touch these books, even though they are the folks who most need them. These books, of course, will not likely be at your local library, but are on Amazon. ...(full comment)

U.N. says CO2 pollution levels at annual record high

Eric Hoffer in his book "The True Believer: Thoughts on the Nature of Mass Movements " gives us a very helpful view into mass movements, and the things he wrote about in 1951 still apply today, and they apply to the anti carbon dioxide movement. Funny how the anti-nuke movement, something that has some substance to it , has been replaced by this, and funny that some of the major players in the fraud are pushing fission reactors. Another helpful book is "How To Lie With Statistics" by Darrell Huff (1954). A short 142 pages, and well worth your time. "The Art of Clear Thinking by Rudolf Flesch (1951) has chapter 9 devoted to "How Not To Be Bamboozled", and leads us through some of the more common logical fallacies we are typically hit and bit with, including a favorite of the anti- carbon dioxide crowd, the ad hominem. . From the get-go, it was tough for me to give any credence to the arguments of the pro-CAGW side, though I really tried, and this for about the fourth time, starting in about 2007. They love the ad hominem, particularly the "denier" or "denialist" term. ...(full comment)

Good grief, Bruce_Currie- you do not employ pro CAGW activists to gather and sort your data, period. It is confirmation bias, to say the least. It is outright fraud if you are a scientist and know very well what confirmation bias is. ...(full comment)
