    DescriptionIs the weather truly getting worse? When it comes to global warming, dire predictions seem to be all we see or hear. Climatologists Patrick Michaels and Robert Balling Jr. explain why the news and information we receive about global warming have become so apocalyptic. The science itself has become increasingly biased, with warnings of extreme consequences from global warming becoming the norm. That bias is then communicated through the media, who focus on only extreme predictions. The authors compellingly illuminate the other side of the story, the science we aren't being told. This body of work details how the impact of global warming is far less severe than is generally believed and far from catastrophic.

    Review quote
    This book's title refers to the current scientific environment, which Michaels and Balling view as biased toward alarmism with respect to climate change issues. The authors recognize that anthropogenic global warming is a reality, but criticize mainstream climate science through a review of peer-reviewed literature -CHOICE In Climate of Extremes, two distinguished climatologists analyze the media's message about various alleged doomsday scenarios resulting from global warming-with particular attention to observational data. In each case, they demonstrate that potentially negative effects of increased levels of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere have been exaggerated or even fabricated, whereas any positive effects have been ignored. An informed citizenry is essential for wise national decisions in a democracy. Climate of Extremes provides important and honest information about climate change that is hard to find elsewhere. -WILL HAPPER Professor of Physics and Former Chairman of the University Research Board, Princeton University Former Director, Office of Energy Research, U.S. Department of Energy Michaels and Balling have provided a treasure trove of the latest global warming science that you won't hear about through the media and reveal the absurdity of the claim that the science of man-made global warming is settled. -ROY W. SPENCER Principal Research Scientist, University of Alabama-Huntsville Recipient, NASA's Medal for Exceptional Scientific You don't have to be a skeptic to be curious about how solid the alleged global warming consensus really is. This book will open your eyes, if you are open to evidence and arguments. -BENNY PEISER Liverpool John Moores University, United Kingdom
