Sources and Illustrations for The Inconvenient Skeptic

One of the most frustrating for me personally about the book is the limited options that were available for the illustrations.  A full color version of the book would have been too expensive and B&W Illustrations are so limited.  One solution that was given by a reader was to put the Illustrations on the website.

I started that project about a month ago, but quickly realized that I needed to provide a more structured methodology for me to put it all together.  I have been working on that in the background, but now that effort will start to show up on the website.  This is also a convenient way to link and show the sources for the data I use in the charts.  Chapters 1-3 are complete and the charts can now be seen on the website.

I hope this helps all the readers of the book.


Update 2-20

I have also added chapters 4-5 now.

    As the IPCC, Hansen, and the Real Climate type group have spent the last 15 years telling the world the secince is settled and trillions of dollars must be spent to remove or limit CO2 in the atmosphere it is difficult for them to admit that observation evidence indicates that are completely incorrect. Increases in atmospheric CO2 is positive for the biosphere and humans, further increases in atmospheric CO2 will not cause catastrophic warming, warming in general would be beneficial to the biosphere and humans, and lastly the planet is now about to cool.20th Century Warming & 2000 year Paleo Climatic RecordThe 20th century warming has stopped. That is not possible if the mechanism was CO2 (Hansen’s last ditch hypothesis to explain the lack of warming is a cooling mechanism the caused an increase in the amount of solar radiation reflected to space. During the warming period however there was as measured by satellites a reduction in solar radiation reflected into space which is evidenced in the regions of the oceans and planet that were warmer during that period. Hansen and company chose to ignore that inconvenient observation as it completely invalidates the extreme AGW hypothesis.The Real Climate crowd and cohorts have altered the paleo climatic record to remove the evidence of past cyclic warming and cooling as past cyclic warming and cooling could not have been caused by atmospheric CO2 changes as there was no significant increase and decrease in CO2 levels in the last 2000 years (ignoring the last 40 years). The obvious question is what caused the past cyclic warming and cooling? As there are concurrent with the paleoclimatic record of cyclic warming and cooling and the extreme rapid cooling events cosmogenic isotope changes, the answer is changes in the solar magnetic cycle and different states of the sun.
