CFACT Europe recently released The Climate Hysteria – What’s It All About? The New Nairobi Report on Climate Change, Climate Hoax and Climate Madness by Senior Advisor Michael Limburg

This provocative book examines the latest political developments surrounding the issue of climate change and their relationship to the current state of climate science. It begins by exploring the question of whether there has been any substantial warming outside the range of natural variability (answer: no), continues by examining whether the alleged increase in atmospheric carbon dioxide over the last 100 years is a principle cause of global warming (answer: no), discusses the possible impact of current climate policies on economics and the demography (answer: dangerous), and concludes by discussing whether global warming would be a more of a bane or benefit if it should be proven true (answer: it depends!).

Other questions the publication addresses include:

  • Can humankind realistically prevent further increases in atmospheric carbon dioxide?
  • Are efforts to curb greenhouse gases proving to be more costly than beneficial?
  • Does the existence anthropogenic greenhouse gases really matter?
  • How did the present hysteria emerge?

The impetus for crafting this pamphlet came from the heightened public attention drawn to the global warming issue, largely forged by media hype in Europe, shortly after the 2006 IPCC-Conference in Nairobi. Originally entitled the “Nairobi Report”, and very successfully published in 2007 under the title “The Climate Catastrophe – What Is It All About?”, this pamphlet has since been substantially updated and doubled in size. It attempts to clear a path for those who are, for various reasons, unable to clearly see through the vast jungle of climate literature.

The author is one of the speakers of the European Institute for Climate and Energy, Mr. Michael Limburg from Berlin (Germany), who is also a senior advisor to the European CFACT network, and was an NGO-observer at the UN Climate Conference in Poznan (Poland) in December 2008. In the upcoming weeks, the book will be distributed to policy makers, newsmakers, the business community and students in Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
