Is global warming real? Have any such predictions been established scientifically? Would massive carbon taxes and other controls put America and the worldespecially the poorat great risk?
At this special event, geoscientist and astrophysicist Willie Soon will separate fact from fiction in the global warming debate. He will explain why the forecasts from CO2 climate models have been so wrongand why solar influences on clouds, oceans, and wind drive climate change, not CO2 emissions. Stanford University physicist Elliott Bloom will then comment.
The whole point of science is to question accepted dogmas. For that reason, I respect Willie Soon as a good scientist and a courageous citizen.

I am writing to express my deep admiration and respect for Dr. Willie Soon, a fine astrophysicist and human being.... As Willie has shown in many ways, observational facts do not fit the CO2 dogma, and an enormous amount of evidence points to the Sun as a much more important driver of climate.... Willie was rightwhatever the cause of changing temperature, the main driver cannot be the concentration of atmospheric CO2.

In Hot Talk, Cold Science, the distinguished astrophysicist Dr. S. Fred Singer explores the inaccuracies in historical climate data; the limitations of attempting to model climate on computers; solar variability and its impact on climate; the effects of clouds, ocean currents, and sea levels on global climate; and factors that could mitigate any human impacts on world climate.
Dr. Singers masterful analysis decisively shows that the pessimistic, and often alarming, global warming scenarios depicted in the media have little or no scientific basis. In fact, he finds that many aspects of any global warming, such as a longer growing season for food and a reduced need to use fossil fuels for heating, would actually have a positive impact on the human race. Further, he notes how many proposed solutions to the global warming crisis (such as carbon taxes) would have severe consequences for economically disadvantaged groups and nations.
In Hot Talk, Cold Science the illustrious Fred Singer dares to point out that the Emperor has no clothes. Is there evidence to suggest discernible human influence on global climate? Of great interest, this book demonstrates that at best, the available evidence is sketchy and incomplete. Hot Talk, Cold Science should have widespread circulation.

The highly sensible and well-accepted scientific views in Hot Talk, Cold Science deserve the widest possible exposure.
