Dr. Craig D. Idso, founder and chairman of the board of the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change, says the book " a refreshing read on a topic of great societal importance...because the authors evaluate key predictions and controversies of the global warming debate using logic and science." 

Prof Robert M. Carter, Marine Geophysical Laboratory, says "In an easily accessible style, Robinson leads us through the science information to answer the question, 'Are human carbon dioxide emissions causing dangerous global warming?' The more surprised you are that the answer is 'no,' then the more you need to read this excellent book." 

Global Warming: Alarmists, Skeptics and Deniers brings a unique geological perspective to this politically charged issue, a perspective that has been ignored far too long. Written by a father-son team of geoscientist and attorney, it is the concise guide to the global warming controversy that has been long needed. As a university professor and research geoscientist for thirty years, Dr. Robinson knows that geological science is essential for placing the global warming controversy in proper prospective. One cannot hope to understand how humans might be causing climate change without an understanding of the magnitude and speed natural processed are capable of when it comes to climate change. Earth history is the only yardstick we have to determine whether recent climate change is unusual or not. Yet, inexplicably, a vast repository of geologic data has been ignored in this contentious issue. 

Global Warming: Alarmists, Skeptics and Deniers was written to correct this oversight. This book has been years in the making. It follows the outline Dr. Robinson used successfully for many years in a college classes taken by large numbers of students. Using an easy-to-understand question and answer format, the fourteen chapters of the book cover systematically all the major scientific issues of global warming. With more than three hundred references to peer-reviewed science journal articles and numerous illustrations, it shows how the scientific underpinnings of the global warming theory are actually weak and uncertain. 

"Excellent, accessible handbook of global warming that shows the bulk of the science is on the side of skeptics."--Iain Murray, author of The Really Inconvenient Truths 

Excellent analysis of climate science from a veteran geologist's perspective. Dr. Robinson's discussions of climate models and past climate change are particularly useful. There is much more science, enough to persuade all but die-hard alarmists that a skeptical position better fits the evidence.--Paul MacRae, author of False Alarm--Global Warming 

Dr. S. Fred Singer, Chairman, Science & Environmental Policy Project, says, "The author makes it very clear that a changing climate is not unusual. It is in fact the norm, but often so slow that humans cannot detect it directly. This may be the single most important contribution of this well-written and fact-filled book.
