AIR CON: The Seriously Inconvenient Truth About Global Warming

May 25th, 2009 by Warwick Hughes

This book by New Zealand journalist Ian Wishart – a #1 bestselling author four times, surprised me by the completeness with which he reviewed and presents alternatives to the plethora of IPCC inspired spin and publicity which floods our media today. His sixteen chapters examining aspects of the debate are meticulously footnoted and thus are a valuable reference resource for those wishing to dig deeper or keep up to speed with the unfolding global warming / carbon reduction political drama in years to come.
Note- AIR CON is available online for about US$22 – dont miss out – see below.

Having followed much of the debate over two decades or so I was particularly interested in his last four chapters to see what the author says about where the entire IPCC driven brouhaha is heading. Wishart traces the rise and fall of Enron which after all was designed to make large profits from carbon trading. He sketches for us an entertaining international tableaux overun with mostly unelected public service professionals and swashbuckling business and financial characters. From an Australian perspective it is fascinating to watch the Rudd Goverments squirmings as it attempts to weave a local Carbon Trading Scheme CTS that will not result in disaster for our economy. Now safely postponed until after the next Federal election in 2010 there is more time for the profiteers and rentseekers to jockey for positions like a multitude of Remora beneath a shark – squadrons of latterday mini-Enrons.

Is New Zealand becoming the next Denier Nation? May 3, 2009

Is New Zealand becoming the next Denier Nation?

In the last couple of weeks Australia has been inundated with climate realist news on the internet, in newspapers and on TV. These articles have revolved mainly around Professor Ian Plimer’s new book “Heaven and Earth” (which is selling like HOT cakes in Australia) and reports that the Antarctic is in fact growing.

Now we have New Zealand following in hot pursuit with the launch of “Air Con” by Ian Wishart and climate realist articles in the NZ Herald below:

Journalist and author Ian Wishart has just released his latest book, Air Con, in which he argues the media and powerful “green” lobby groups perpetuate the myth that climate change is man-made

NZ glacier findings upset climate theory
New Zealand Herald, Saturday May 02, 2009

Research by three New Zealand scientists may have solved the mystery of why glaciers behave differently in the Northern and Southern Hemispheres

“The New Zealand findings point to the importance of regional shifts in wind directions and sea surface temperatures,” he said.
Regional weather patterns such as the El Nino Southern Oscillation were superimposed on the global climate trends reflected in the behaviour of glaciers.

We need to be listening to science
New Zealand Herald, Friday May 01, 2009

The Sun was more active during much of the 20th century than it was for the previous 1000 years. Now, however, the trend appears to have reversed.
Solar activity is exceptionally low and there is no sign that this may change in the near future.

Predictions of future climate are usually based on global climate models. Up until now, these models have failed to consider variable energy from the Sun. The significance of this cannot be overstated as the Sun is the only source of energy to power Earth’s climate, so all global climate change is directly or indirectly linked to it.
