Is this a scientific book? What is the core idea in the book?
The basic hypothesis behind the regulatory skeleton is quite simple one. Just to take a house as an example. During warm days house is getting warmed by external heat. When night arrives, external heat sources are absent when sun is not visible. Now assume that the house has a roof window. Colder air will either flow in from open roof window or heat will be dissipated through open window. This activates the heating, which then regulates the temperature. When inhabitant closes the window, temperature will temporary rise, until the heating regulator is adapted to the change.
This is exactly what is taking place now. We inhabitant have closed the roof window, but Gulf stream as the main temperature regulator has not yet adopted to the change. But we can be sure, that in future this adaptation will take place. From history we can easily learn what does this mean.
All data used is from public domain. Scientific sources like the National Geophysical Data Center (NOAA), NASA, or other official, mostly US based have been used. The selection was made based on the vide variety of data available in one source only. On each analysis approved and published scientific data is showed and on the other the logical conclusions done by the author. The author's role is much concentrated to the integration of different datasources in a way that has not been found in the public domain or in the litterature written around the subject.
Is there any reason to be suspicious about CO2 and temperature?
The CO2 climate influence seems to be evident and accepted among politicians and principal scientists. Is there any reson to be suspicious?
That's true. However when politics and axioms start to govern the science history shows that this development is not sustainable. In this case motivation is the search for truth in such a form that it can be understood by all persons, who are interested in this new CO2 world order. Also there are masses scientists, who do not approve the CO2 model, but on the otherhand do not affility to give their opinions freely.
Why write a critical book on CO2 and temperature?
Why write a critical book about CO2 and the Greenhouse Effect and temperature based just on the historical temperature reconstructions? After several years of studying different subjects like earthquakes, tectonic plates, volcanoes, tides, ocean currents, atmospheric winds, concentrations of CO2 and other greenhouse gases, lunar and solar gravitation, Sun cycles, the time series of temperature data, aviation traffic and so on the skeleton of the temperature regulation begun to seem logically simple.
Who should read this book?
The Short History of Temperature has been written for professionals and advanced level persons working or studying closely the climate change or related topics, who need variety of critical information related to the topic. Like journalists, In order to undestand the basic phenomena behind the conclusions made in the book, there is a vide variety of geophysical, celestial and seasonal knowledge required.
