In order to cut through all the hype and misinformation on global warming and get right to the facts with the least amount of reading, I would recommend reading items in this order:
1.) “The Satanic Gases” by Dr. Patrick Michaels (Professor Emeritus in Environmental Studies from Univ. of Virginia & State Climatologist for Virginia). Thousands of accurate global warming facts plus exposure of the intellectual dishonesty of formerly prestigious Science journals.
2.) “The Chilling Stars: A New Theory of Climate Change” (2007) by Dr. Henrik Svensmark & Nigel Calder. Most likely correct natural global warming and global cooling explanation.
3.) The 20 Chapter refutation of the scientific lies in the “An Inconvenient Truth” at: http://www.cei.org/pages/ait_response-book.cfm This can be ordered as a free booklet titled “Al Gore’s Science Fiction” from the Competitive Enterprise Institute.
4.) “Meltdown: The Predictable Distortion of Global Warming by Politicians, Science and the Media” by Dr. Patrick Michaels, 2004
Three very important articles on key global warming topics are:
1.) Dr. Benny Peiser, media and science journal dishonesty on global warming: http://www.achgut.com/dadgdx/index.php/dadgd/article/editorial_bias_and_the_prediction_of_climate_disaster_the_crisis_of_science/
2.) Dr. Patrick Michaels, refutation of the lies about Antarctica melting: http://www.tcsdaily.com/article.aspx?id=030306H
3.) Dr. Tim Patterson, refutation of Gore’s lies about the Vostok, Antarctica ice core data and more: http://www.tcsdaily.com/article.aspx?id=010405M
