In 2009, Ian Wishart's Air Con became Amazon's #1 bestselling climate change book on both sides of the Atlantic. Now, the award-winning journalist and author is back with an updated and expanded special edition, covering the latest scientific discoveries into 2010, and the fallout from the Climategate and UN IPCC scandals. With more than 60 additional pages in three new chapters, Air Con: Climategate 2010 Edition brings to life the dramatic events surrounding the leaked CRU emails, explaining their significance and impact on climate science. This new edition also contains extensive new information on why ocean acidification is not being caused by CO2, and how UN officials asked tropical islanders to lie about rising sea levels, and all the most important scientific and political developments since the first edition was published last year. Air Con: Climategate Edition is the most up to date global warming book now on the market.

Review:

Panic about global warming has become one of the big beat-ups of our time. In this helpful volume best-selling New Zealand writer and commentator Ian Wishart carefully and painstakingly looks at the topic, examining the evidence and weighing up the pros and cons. He not only finds the science to be unconvincing, but believes that following the proposed remedies will well-nigh bankrupt the West and in fact compound problems. An eye-opening treatment of a controversial issue. --Quadrant magazine, Australia

Lesson one: when green Leftists try to shut down a democracy it isn't because they can defend their arguments, it's because they can't. Free speech also means nothing, without open public debates. So, what gives Al Gore the right to declare that the so-called "debate is over" in places like New Zealand, Australia, South Africa, or the U.S.? In Air Con, Ian Wishart, a critical-thinking New Zealander, dismantles the Left's worst myths through sharp questions, a good many blow-your-mind quotes, and don't-try-to-fool-me arguments. While the investigative journalist once believed in global warming, he now unapologetically submits (p.12): "The biggest lie in Al Gore's comments is this: "The science is settled." It's what practitioners of the dark arts of public manipulation refer to as a "lizard brain" phrase, that parks itself deep into the subconscious of listeners, thanks to a comforting appeal to authority figures (scientists), and an assurance they've got it right (settled). Lizard brains are where instinctive, knee jerk reactions are generated often before the person consciously realises." And how ethical is it to whine (without evidence) that all AGW skeptics are nefarious millionaires, when Al Gore is jet-setting around the world with his carbon-hungry entourage? Wishart isn't afraid to state what so many of America's anti-investigative journalists prefer to ignore (p.192): "In the case of "follow the money", it's important to recognise that both sides in this debate have a financial motivation, but arguably that of global warming believers is bigger. In the scientific community there's a standing joke, "No problem = no funding." In other words, to keep getting the research grants scientists have to keep coming up with problems requiring research or solution. In most cases, public tax money funds this and those projects that are seen as the most important get the most funding. Global warming is sex on a stick in the science community right now." Gore's I-am-the-king-of-the-world arguments show a lack of maturity and are circular in nature. Can he really read the hearts and minds of all skeptics? Are only Gore-friendly businesspeople saintly carriers of righteous moneybags? Furthermore, pro-liberty advocates reject the idea that all government-first researchers are pure, sanctified, and cleansed. The former adviser to Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, Lord Christopher Monckton, praises Wishart's "timely book." Likewise, UN IPCC expert reviewer, Dr Vincent Gray believes he's done a "thorough job." --The American Thinker

Book Description Howling at the Moon Pub. Paperback. Condition: New. 296 pages. ReviewAir Con demonstrates, with hundreds of scientific references, that global warming was not, is not, and will not be a global crisis; that, even if per impossibile it might be, it is far more cost-effective to adapt as and if needed than to attempt to mitigate global warming by cutting emissions of carbon dioxide; and that all attempts at mitigation would serve only to imprison the very poorest in their poverty, thereby perversely increasing world population and consequently the carbon footprint of humankind, achieving an outcome precisely the opposite of that which was (however piously) intended. The UN, Mikhail Gorbachev, Jacques Chirac, and other world-government wannabes are plotting to establish nothing less than a global, bureaucratic-centralist dictatorship under the pretext that it is necessary to Save The Planet. Ian Wisharts book demonstrates that there is not the slightest scientific reason for the new, quasi-religious belief that The Planet needs Saving. The new religion is merely an excuse for world government. World government will not, repeat not, be democratic government. The global warming debate is not really a debate about climatology - it is a debate about freedom. It is the aim of the growing world-government faction among the international classe politique to take away our hard-won freedom and democracy forever. I commend this timely book, which makes the scientific arguments comprehensible to the layman. Those who read it will help to forestall the new Fascists and so to keep us free. --Lord Christopher Monckton, Viscount of Brenchley, former scientific advisor to Margaret Thatcher --Christopher Monckton, Viscount of BrenchleyI started reading this book with an intensely critical eye, expecting that a mere journalist could not possibly cope with the complexities of climate science . . . But He gives chapter and verse for almost everything he says. The book is brilliant. The best I have seen which deals with the news item side of it as well as the science. He has done a very thorough job and I have no hesitation in unreserved commendation. It has come along at the time we most need it and I hope it is published and publicized widely. --Dr Vincent Gray, UN IPCC expert reviewer 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. --Dr Warwick Hughes, climatologist ExcellentIan Wisharts book Air Con ismore approachable for the non-scientific reader, and whilst including enough essential science to gain a good understanding of the issues, concentrates more on the political aspects of the global warming debate, including how the global warming industry has tried (unsuccessfully) to shut down any criticism of the consensus, and exposes the scientific skulduggery that often goes on to perpetuate global warming alarmism. ACM highly recommendsessential reading - Australian Climate Madness --Australian Climate MadnessIan Wisharts AIR CON is another masterpiece of scientific reason, letting the thinking world know that so-called man-made global warming is the greatest scam ever aimed at humanity.
