You have been inundated with reports from media, governments,
think tanks and ''experts'' saying that our climate is changing for the
worse and it is our fault. Increases in droughts, heat waves, tornadoes
and poison ivy - to name a few - are all blamed on our ''sins of
emissions'' from burning fossil fuels and increasing carbon dioxide in
the atmosphere. Yet, you don't quite buy into this human-caused climate
apocalypse. You aren't sure about the details because you don't have all
the facts and likely aren't a scientist. Inconvenient Facts was
specifically created for you. Writing in plain English and providing
easily understood charts and figures, Gregory Wrightstone presents the
science to assess the basis of the threatened Thermageddon.

The
book's 60 ''inconvenient facts'' come from government sources,
peer-reviewed literature or scholarly works, set forth in a way that is
lucid and entertaining. The information likely will challenge your
current understanding of many apocalyptic predictions about our ever
dynamic climate.

You will learn that the planet is improving, not in
spite of increasing CO2 and rising temperature, but because of it. The
very framework of the climate-catastrophe argument will be confronted
with scientific fact. Arm yourself with the truth.

It's about time! In our current culture of Greta Thunberg, Elizabeth May and the heavily politicized topic of climate change, to even dare question it makes you an ignorant bumpkin who doesn't understand science, apparently. Inconvenient Facts was not only well-researched, but it contains information that actually tries to bring some real science to the forefront of what has become more or less a political agenda/religion at this point. It's not one of those nutty conspiracy theory type books, It's about time! In our current culture of Greta Thunberg, Elizabeth May and the heavily politicized topic of climate change, to even dare question it makes you an ignorant bumpkin who doesn't understand science, apparently. Inconvenient Facts was not only well-researched, but it contains information that actually tries to bring some real science to the forefront of what has become more or less a political agenda/religion at this point. It's not one of those nutty conspiracy theory type books, and even many hardcore environmentalists will be surprised by it.

Like many controversial texts, those who don't agree with its message will ultimately hate it no matter what. However, even if you think that Inconvenient Facts doesn't disprove climate change, there is nothing wrong with asking questions and learning about opposing viewpoints, and this book is definitely a good starting point. Whether climate change is real or not, this book is right to highlight the need for it to stop being such a political issue and to bring it back to the subject of science - and science is all about asking questions, even if that means questioning what has already been established. Citing many credible sources, Inconvenient Facts is actually one of few climate change books I've read that really contains a lot of this - ironically.

*For the record, my grandfather has a doctorate and studied environmental engineering and genetics, and my parents both have science degrees. They've all suggested to me to be skeptical about the sudden push towards radical environmentalism, and I'm inclined to agree with them more than a politician like Al Gore. ...more

And there are also listed in a six or seven page portion before that 60 inconvenient facts segment of the book- numbered quality (specific in data in majority) refutes for the original "Inconvenient Truth" (60) declarations. The reviewers who state that there are no references or sources for this book or that the "settled" consensus which cores on CO2 human original inputs HOLD their own references or proofs that ARE any more valid in their theory or measurement "sources" originals for "truth" validations? Well, they are just plain wrong. And I would lay a decent bet that some of the 1 star posters here didn't read any portion of this Wrightstone book, either.

Theory, theory, theory. Nothing is "settled" and there is no consensus in any science unless it is provable by duplication of factors/ dependable equation. Consensus and science are opposing definitions within the context of their very natures. And there is not an "expert" consensus to cause or effects either beyond that assumption. CO2 as a determining and core factor in climate change outcomes? That has become the global elites' religion to control populations for their own purposes. Repeated and indoctrinated long enough by the most highly powerful to be faith "believed".

When I did research for medical personnel I would often come across entire scientific staff and institutional material which published refutes to the CO2 Gore dogma criteria. And would note how and when and by whom these experts and officials were squelched. Or the how/ where/ by whom elimination to their questioning of this "fact" was endlessly pursued. Now I begin to understand the why of all that- these many years later. It's being used as religion used to be- to control and dominate pursuits.

This book takes 60 "facts" and gives you charts, ice, air, water, historical, animal, plant life record. The entire graphs, charts, relationship %'s and much else of data all have their source and origins of who/ what organization did the evaluations listed, down to the where and whom or what institute. The Michael Mann hockey stick evaluation to relationship used in the movie / Al Gore's is exactly equated to what portion it truly represents in this book for the longer record- even a tiny portion of that "longer" record. All kinds of factors re Sheet Ice (GISP2) projects and also animal count models and crop outputs are also highly referenced (down to a list of dozens and dozens of foodstuffs). That some do not equate this with sources is laughable and truly displayed how the dogma of this CO2 theory has been swallowed. Especially since the entire Carbon / Human condition connection that is translated to be the Chicken Little message continually is based upon only one of 1000's and 1000's of other intersecting factors toward climate and weather changes to Earth inputs. And it absolutely is in great majority negated by the facts alone of human history records in the era portions in which there have been "homo" populations, not just homo sapiens. At times there has been nearly 40 times the CO2 that exists in the atmosphere today. And it was during a period of early animal/ human evolution. Warmth of Earth history has increased biology, cold has always decreased it.

In other words, it seems it may be exactly the opposite of what is being currently preached as the "end of the world". Because the best times for animals and more humans (all biology of the animal world) has been within periods of HIGH CO2 in the atmosphere. Higher than the present. There was a nadir point (during the "Little Ice Age") when it became too low to properly ensure that plant life could profligate. (CO2 is what actually is the base food for photosynthesis.) Cold always has and always will kill more species, and humans too- then will heat. And every portion where climate has changed the most in the long earth's past (some indicative within the last 4000 years, as well) have been when there was near to none, or none at all human CO2 inputs in percentages to the "whole" existing.

This is just a portion of the book. There are 60 categories of facts at the end. And at least 4 dozen quotes that are priceless. Most from scientists or leaders of the past- but some of ancient record in categories to nature of Earth itself, as well. That humans are the primary cause of any climate change, or that they may have a minuscule difference to the 1000's of solar activities and other inner earth issues to the final outcomes, is probably the most mighty hubris that humans have ever conceived about themselves. Humans are just not that powerful or important in the dynamic, like thinking that the everything in Space revolved only around "us"- one time a "settled science". Water Vapor is excluded too in the Gore equation. Which by itself is the most ridiculous of all premises for this entire category of declaration or questioning. Greenhouse effect itself is primarily a factor of water vapor. Seas will also not rise. There are chapters on this and sea ice and polar bears and the facts about what has happened and will probably happen next. Like the ozone layer "crisis"? Do you ever hear about what happened with that lately? No, you haven't.

There are real numbers here too about which scientists "agree" with this "settled" science. Not what you think at all either. And the Paris Climate Change agreement would use trillions and trillions of dollars while obliterating many human populations viability while not lessening temperature of Earth even a tiny fraction of hundreths of 1% percentage. The exact figures are here for that, as well.

If you want to know about the Maunder Minimum (real Science with the capital S) and about 5 million years of recorded and tested by cores, rocks, formations, geology studies weather or climate periods in relationship to human or animal or crop/ plant growth populations read this book.

The best part was the 60 inconvenient facts from page 124-130 that parody the "Truth" film by current values. Point by point - the real Science. As the experiment where ice melts and if that makes the water levels rise. It doesn't. Ice takes up as much space as does water. But in fact some of the most "dire" ice sheet studies are included too. As are the reality history counts of hurricanes, tornadoes etc. etc.

Humans and animals (even in the seas) have always prospered /expanded in warmer weather Earth periods than they have from Cold or Ice ages. Read this book if you want to know why. And also how the periods of human history itself has changed with the climate and weather conditions. The Dark Ages were dark for a reason.

This is NOT saying that pollution does not exist nor that it is innocent for ruinous conditions of long effect. Nor does it ever suggest that pollution is not harmful. Not at all. That's another issue entirely. This is about the actual values of CO2 and the Greenhouse Effect that cored the movie Inconvenient Truth. ...more

Each of the author’s arguments is one that climate deniers have tried to make before. The only thing inconvenient here is someone reading this book and thinking these arguments haven’t already been debunked. Visit skepticalscience.com for research-based rebuttals to each of the author’s points.

Seriously horrible. I was excited to see what conflicting evidence there is on climate change-- I'm not left-leaning, right-leaning or have any agenda when it comes to discovering scientific evidence. This book, however, was riddled with extreme bias, ridiculous assumptions with unsubstantiated claims, and lacked scientific tone. I was thoroughly disappointed but am still hopeful to find thoughtful (and evidence-based) contradictory evidence to the popular views of human-induced climate change. Seriously horrible.

I am not a “climate denier,” but at the same time I do not believe that a warming earth is necessarily bad, that man is the principle cause of warming, or that it is or will be catastrophic. I have read a number of books on this subject and I find this book to be well written, factual but not wonky, and the science is presented in a way that is easy for the non-scientist to understand.

The author was on the Andy Caldwell show, he sounded so rational that I wanted to read the book. I am not a scientist & this could have been a very technical book, it isn't. It is very clear that anthropogenic warming isn't a problem.

Everyone needs to read this book, whether you believe wholeheartedly in the new religion of climate science orthodoxy and that the world will end in 12 years or whether you are more skeptical and willing to believe actual science versus "consensus" science. The 60 Inconvenient Facts presented by this author go a long way towards debunking most of the science and a great deal of their methodologies and data collection and modeling promoted by climate-apocalypse proponents.

The 60 Inconvenient Facts presented by this author go a long way towards debunking most of the science and a great deal of their methodologies and data collection and modeling promoted by climate-apocalypse proponents. In chapter after chapter, you will learn that scientifically supported truths, as revealed within this book, are polar opposites of what you hear from climate alarmists and their willing accomplices in the media. Also the fact that Apple removed the app created by the Geologist who wrote this book as a companion to get facts easily tells you all you need to know about the censorship currently going on when someone dares to go against the "settled" science of climate change. Just because Al Gore is on their board and all of these truths are inconvenient for him and for the thousands of dollars he has made at gullible people's expense? That's no reason for censorship. If this is all not true, then why censor it? Why keep people from seeing the other side of your arguments? Wow I thought we lived in a free society...

So I was recommended to read this book by a friend of a friend. I was a little sceptical after reading about the author - no peer reviewed journal articles on climate change, spent career in the gas industry, and on the board of the Heartland Institute (the one that supported Phillip Morris discredit the health risks of smoking and funded by Exxon Mobile and Koch Industries)

But I wanted to understand his fact based approach so decided to read it - and at 135 pages, it’s a short book

I was a little sceptical after reading about the author - no peer reviewed journal articles on climate change, spent career in the gas industry, and on the board of the Heartland Institute (the one that supported Phillip Morris discredit the health risks of smoking and funded by Exxon Mobile and Koch Industries)

But I wanted to understand his fact based approach so decided to read it - and at 135 pages, it’s a short book

Yes, he uses a wide range of peer reviewed data sources, but his conclusions in using them don’t follow logic, use cherry picked stats and unsurprisingly aren’t peer reviewed

3 examples that come to mind:

- One of his key arguments is that the earth used to have more CO2 and be warmer (true), so we have “dangerously decreasing CO2”. Wrong conclusion - humans / apes / ecosystems we have today weren’t around in those times, so comparing previous levels is irrelevant, and it isn’t so much the absolute levels but the rapid change in those levels that is the issue

- Temperatures changed over the past 800,000 years and past 10,000 years and it wasn’t us (true), so this rapid rise now isn’t down to us. Wrong conclusion. He then shows cool patches like 98-12 (true) despite CO2 rising (true), which he concludes means there is no correlation between the two - wrong conclusion as need to look at the overall trend since 1600. Also notice he doesn’t show 12-17 which shows temp rises (book was published in 2017)

- One at the heart of it. 11,944 peer reviewed papers on climate change in past 21 years. 3,898 state it is man made, 116 state it is not man made, 7,930 aren’t focused on if it is man made it not. He then argues that the correct interpretation of these numbers is that only 33% of papers support climate change is man made. Yes, but of those with a view on if it is man made or not, 97% support it as man made

It’s hard not to come to the conclusion that the author’s motives aren’t simply to sow uncertainty in the climate change debate using a raft of research that, although is entirely correct, doesn’t back his conclusions and ones that any high school student could dismantle

I would, however, recommend this book for those who would like some background climate information (as I say, the sources he uses are good background), and as an example of how such information can be mis-used to support incorrect conclusions

Also worth a read is the following link from Willard MacDonald, who had a bit more time to wade through this than me:

Wrightstone is a geoscientist who had questions concerning the science behind climate-change alarmism and so went on an exploration of the methods and results of the climate scientists, as well as what was actually reported as scientific fact. He also takes a look at the long-term climate changes the Earth has undergone to put the current climate in perspective, as opposed to the rather short term (a few decades) perspective taken by climate activists, politicians and the media.

He also takes a look at the long-term climate changes the Earth has undergone to put the current climate in perspective, as opposed to the rather short term (a few decades) perspective taken by climate activists, politicians and the media. He takes a look at what was predicted in terms of climate and what has actually occurred. Carbon dioxide, ocean acidification, droughts, famine, heat-waves, weather anomalies, polar bears etc are all covered. This is a short, fascinating, easy-to-understand book that is packed full of relevant graphs, charts and diagrams; along with pages of scientific references.

I especially recommend this book to those people who feel helpless, depressed or panicked in the face of the impending climate catastrophe. Using an evidence based approach, Wrightstone helps illustrate that things aren't nearly as bad as the media makes it out to be. Wrightstone provides the information (and the references for additional information) and allows the reader to draw their own conclusion. ...more

About Time

Finally a scientific look at “climate change”. Common sense hasn’t worked. It is about time that somebody actually looked at the scientific data available and summarized it for us everyday people.
