From the Foreword to the new edition:
The climate has not changed much since the summer 2012 release of In Global Warming We Trust: A Heretics Guide to Climate Science -- at least not much for the promoters of global climate doom. Yes, the disaster-monger tactics have changed somewhat, their hysteria has increased a bit, and much more money and politicking have been devoted to their dubious cause.
The August 3, 2015 release of the Obama Administration’s Clean Power Plan is the grand case in point. But, regardless of high-level machinations, the climate keeps operating as usual, changing in its substantially natural way.
No matter, trusting continues big time! After all, in essence what are far-ranging outlooks of global climate conditions -- especially those fine-tuned for local areas? They are at best educated guesses by purportedly really smart people, and as such require trust by lesser entities, including other really smart people who don’t have advanced degrees in climatology.
So, it comes down to trust, and the fact that people will believe what they want to believe, or are compelled to believe.
Yet, what if there are some really intelligent, independent, scientifically-minded folks out there with some impressive credentials, a lot of real world experience, and a dash of objective common sense who question the ability of those other purportedly really smart people to be so utterly certain of their own prophetic powers? Would the input from the really intelligent, independent, scientifically-minded folks have any value in a free society, especially a society required to pay the bill for an enormously expensive gamble that the purportedly really smart people actually know what they’re talking about?
And, we certainly are paying the bill. The federal government alone has poured billions of our tax dollars into research directed at substantiating preformed conclusions that humans are responsible for disastrous climate change and that increased carbon dioxide (“carbon pollution”) produces only bad effects. Mounds of money are used to prop-up wind mills and solar collectors in the hope of averting an airy adversary in the form of increased severe weather events. In addition, a boat load of our cash floats into “education” of the public and students from grade school through graduate school on the culpability of people for climate catastrophe.
Like the giant financial institutions, the “climate-industrial complex” -- as former U.S. Environmental Protection Agency senior analyst Alan Carlin and others have dubbed it -- has now supposedly become “too big to fail.”
But, are we investing wisely? Are there bigger issues out there in the real world that demand our serious financial attention and compassionate focus -- issues that pose a bigger threat to humans and the ecosystem than some potential uptick in temperature levels. Two big threats topping the list are terrorism and abject poverty, both quite destructive to people and the planet, both within the means of our nation to greatly alleviate.
“ Anthony Sadar’s “In Global Warming We Trust” provides important information and profoundly thoughtful insights that reveal how a powerful “climate industrial complex” manipulates public vulnerability to guilt and fear to advance disastrous government energy and environmental policies that impact broad aspects of our lives. Included are a cabal of agenda-driven “green energy” rent seekers, guilt and fear- messaging politicians and environmental activists, scientifically-corrupted academicians, and compliant media pundits that misrepresent facts and distort basic science. Written by a well- informed meteorologist, there is much to trust in this fine book. ”
author of Climate of Corruption: Politics and Power Behind the Global Warming Hoax and Scared Witless: Prophets and Profits of Climate Doom
“ Tony Sadar possesses the knowledge and field experience to challenge the high priests of manmade global warming on the science that they choose to ignore. He reminds us that science is never really "settled," using inconvenient facts leavened with a measure of humor. ”
President, Air Science Consultants
“ Tony Sadar is an air pollution meteorologist whose insight from decades of experience in government service, academia, and industry consulting makes the case for more independent thinking and less dependence on groupthink when it comes to solving critical environmental problems. In Global Warming We Trust gives a perspective sorely needed in today's climate science debate. ”
Family and Environmental Lawyer
“ In Global Warming We Trust is a unique mix of science and a clear understanding of precisely how politics, money, and power have perverted it. The book is easily understandable by the layman, but it will also richly reward any scientist who reads it. ”
Science Director of The Heartland Institute
Anthony J. Sadar is a Certified Consulting Meteorologist with 35 years of experience in atmospheric and environmental science and science education. During his career, he has divided his time about equally among government, private industry, and academia. Mr. Sadar is currently an air pollution meteorologist and air pollution program administrator and is an adjunct associate professor of science (including meteorology and climatology). He founded Environmental Science Communication, LLC, a private consulting firm specializing in air pollution dispersion modeling, regulatory compliance, and risk communication for business and industry. His hands-on experience includes weather observation above the Arctic Circle, air quality modeling, and environmental project management. Mr. Sadar has authored dozens of articles about atmospheric and environmental issues.
Mr. Sadar, along with Mark Shull, authored Environmental Risk Communication: Principles and Practices for Industry (CRC Press/Lewis Publishers, 2000). Mr. Sadar’s commentaries and book reviews have appeared in The Washington Times, The Washington Examiner, and other newspapers and trade publications.
He holds a BS in meteorology from The Pennsylvania State University, an MS in environmental science from the University of Cincinnati, and an MEd in science education from the University of Pittsburgh.
Mr. Sadar is a member of the American Meteorological Society; the Air & Waste Management Association; Kappa Delta Pi (education honors fraternity); and the Local Emergency Planning Committee of Allegheny County (Pittsburgh, PA).
