S. Fred Singer is Professor Emeritus at the University of Virg inia and chairman of the Science & Env iron mental Policy Pro ject (SEPP). His specialty is atmospheric and space physics. An expert in remote sensing and satellites, he served as the founding director of the US Weather Satellite Serv ice and, more recently, as vice chair of the US National Advisory Co mmittee on Oceans & Atmosphere. In 2007, he founded the NIPCC (Nongovernmental International Panel on Climate Change), providing an alternative scientific voice to the UN’s IPCC (intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change). He edited the first NIPCC report Nature, Not Human Activity, Rules the Climate (2008) and co-authored the full NIPCC report Climate Change Reconsidered (2009).
This booklet updates NIPCC report Nature, Not Human Activity, Rules the Climate (2008) and contains new results:
- It defends NIPCC against false claims that IPCC climate models are “consistent” with observed temperature trends. The central issue is the cause of global warming: Is it natural or is it man made?
- It demonstrates that because of their chaotic character none of IPCC’s climate models can be validated against observations and used to predict future temperatures.
- It presents new thinking on Climategate, Hockeystick graph — and multiple evidence against the claimed surface warming underlying the IPCC conclusion of AGW.
