This book addresses all aspects of climate and paleo-climates, from atmospheric physics, to astronomical influences and geological and geochemical drivers. It covers the computer models claiming to simulate the climate and the policies that are projected from them. You can get the pdf for free here.

Many methods have been devised to compute orbits and they fall into two main categories: geometric approaches and analytic ones. Geometric methods deliver orbital elements less certain but are usef
ul when the length of the arc observed so far is just more or less significant of the entire trajectory to come. This paper will not be a quarrel of the ancients and the moderns, but will remind traditional ways of computing orbits so that it will remain, for those who wish, a rewarding craftsman job of playing with a wire and two pins, keeping a close contact with the specificity of the binaries studied and thereof of the observations made, to first find with their best astronomical sense, the foci of the apparent ellipse. The calculation of the orbits and ephemeris of 14 stars will serve as example, and for nine of them original orbits solutions are proposed, computed by means of the geometrical method confirming its appropriateness and reliability. ...

Understanding climate and paleo-climates is an ever lasting effort to comprehend inputs from many disciplines. Too often, a myopic perspective is followed, based on fragmented studies in just one d
iscipline, over a short period of time, completely dismissing the "big picture". This project aims at balancing inputs from all sources available and over the many time-scales used to ensure that an overemphasis would not be given to conjectural worries and unfounded claims that would not be grounded in evidences. The first result has been issuing the Rational Climate e-Book. Not only will there be revised editions incorporating all helpful contributions but further cooperation is welcomed with any good-willing parties.

This book is a must-have for any person interested in the history of what is called climate science and of the people who contributed to shaping the dominant ideas of our time. It also describes how the power struggles of various influential groups determined where we stand today. Though the book is focused on people who made things happen, it never misses on reminding us, whenever necessary, of
... [Show full abstract] the underlying scientific knowledge and reasoning that prevails, or rather should prevail, in making rational analyses and decisions in climate matters. Andy May also demonstrates the considerable level of incertitude that remains after 40 years of intensive research and acknowledges that some key variables in the understanding of the climate system are unfortunately not better known today than they were 40 years ago. Science is important, but history is about people who make things happen, and this is what this excellent book is all about. The role of all those who made important contributions is told, the scientists of course, but perhaps more importantly how many other players entered the game. The book ends reflecting on the prescient analysis of Dwight D. Eisenhower who foretold how public policies have become the captive of a scientific-technological elite who are controlled by funding from bureaucrats and politicians. Andy May gives a fascinating account of this important part of human history, that will undoubtedly shape the future of our civilizations, and not necessarily for the greater good that is assumed.

Climate science is complicated and can cover everything from computer modelling to tracking animal migration patterns to materials technology, and so much more besides that it can be overwhelming trying to understand it all. Climate scientist Mark C Serreze clearly explains this complicated interplay in his book Brave New Arctic: the Untold Story of the Melting North.

Evidence-Based Climate Science: Data Opposing CO2 Emissions as the Primary Source of Global Warming, Second Edition, includes updated data related to the causes of global climate change from experts in meteorology, geology, atmospheric physics, solar physics, geophysics, climatology, and computer modeling. This book objectively gathers and analyzes scientific data concerning patterns of past
... [Show full abstract] climate changes, influences of changes in ocean temperatures, the effect of solar variation on global climate, and the effect of CO2 on global climate. This analysis is then presented as counter-evidence to the theory that CO2 is the primary cause behind global warming. Increasingly, scientists are pointing to data which suggests that climate changes are a result of natural cycles, which have been occurring for thousands of years. Unfortunately, global warming has moved into the political realm without enough peer-reviewed research to fully validate and exclude other, more natural, causes of climate change. For example, there is an absence of any physical evidence that CO2 causes global warming, so the only argument for CO2 as the cause of warming rests entirely in computer modeling. Thus, the question becomes, how accurate are the computer models in predicting climate? What other variables could be missing from the models? In order to understand modern climate changes, we need to look at the past history of climate changes. Vast amounts of physical evidence of climate change over the past centuries and millennia have been gathered by scientists. Significant climate changes have clearly been going on for many thousands of years, long before the recent rise in atmospheric CO2 Evidence-Based Climate Science, Data Opposing CO2 Emissions as the Primary Source of Global Warming, Second Edition, documents past climate changes and presents physical evidence for possible causes. Provides scientific evidence for issues related to global climate change that is not readily available elsewhere. Offers detailed analysis of temperature measurements with the goal of helping readers to understand conflicting claims about global warming heard every day in the news media. Presents real-time data on polar ice. Presents the real-time effect of CO2 on global warming, rather than forecasts based on computer models. Read more January 2005
