Evidence-Based Climate Science

Data opposing CO2 emissions as the primary source of global warming

Global warming and human-induced climate change are perhaps the most important scientific issues of our time. These issues continue to be debated in the scientific community and in the media without true consensus about the role of greenhouse gas emissions as a contributing factor.

Evidence-Based Climate Science: Data opposing CO2 emissions as the primary source of global warming objectively gathers and analyzes scientific data concerning patterns of past climate changes, influences of changes in ocean temperatures, the effect of solar variation on global climate, and the effect of CO2 on global climate to clearly and objectively present counter-global-warming evidence not embraced by proponents of CO2.

Audience

This title will be of interest primarily to atmospheric scientists, oceanographers, meteorologists, and climatologists. It is also suitable as a reference for scientists practicing in the fields of environmental science, ecology, geology, and geophysics.
