S. Fred Singer was one of the world's preeminent authorities on energy and environmental issues. A pioneer in the development of rocket and satellite technology, Dr. Singer designed the first satellite instrument for measuring atmospheric ozone and was a principal developer of scientific and weather satellites. Author of more than 400 technical articles in scientific, economics, and public policy journals, plus more than 400 articles in popular publications, including the Wall Street Journal, New York Times, and the Washington Post, Dr. Singer received his Ph.D. in physics from Princeton University. David R. Legates is a research fellow at the Independent Institute, deputy assistant secretary of commerce for observation and prediction at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and professor of climatology in the Department of Geography at the University of Delaware. His research has appeared in such scientific journals as the International Journal of Climatology, Journal of Geophysical Research, and Theoretical and Applied Climatology. Anthony R. Lupo is a research fellow at the Independent Institute and chairman and professor in the Department of Soil, Environmental, and Atmospheric Science at the University of Missouri (MU). An associate editor of the Monthly Weather Review, Dr. Lupo's peer-reviewed publications have appeared in such scientific journals as Bulletin of the American Meteorological Society, International Journal of Biometeorology, and International Journal of Climatology.
"Hot Talk, Cold Science is an excellent book on the politics
and science of climate change." --Elliott D. Bloom, Professor
Emeritus, Stanford Linear Accelerator Laboratory; Member of the
team with Jerome I. Friedman, Henry W. Kendall and Richard E.
Taylor who received the 1990 Nobel Prize in Physics
"Hot Talk, Cold Science by Fred Singer (with David Legates and Anthony Lupo), is one of the most important contributions undermining the economically and politically problematic and highly controversial scientific doctrine of man-made global warming." --Vaclav Klaus, former President, Czech Republic
"As contentious as the climate issue was and is, I was always impressed by Fred Singer's gentle demeanor within that storm. I suppose he remained calm because he sought to ground his views in the actual evidence of climate observations. In his day, reproducible evidence was the foundation on which one was taught to test one's claims and he simply went about the business of checking out the latest theorized conjectures about the climate. Here in Hot Talk, Cold Science, he updates his findings regarding those conjectures, as well as giving a tour of the political landscape that melded itself to the climate-alarm agenda. His conclusions should give us all a modest sense of gentle calmness--that same calmness he carried to the end of his days." --John R. Christy, Director, Earth System Science Center, University of Alabama in Huntsville
"When debating environmental policy, we frequently hear from scientists, climate activists, and public officials who claim 'the science is settled' with regard to global warming. This book is a great reminder that the data are mixed at best. We should follow the science. Hot Talk, Cold Science provides the reader with important facts and evidence consistently and conveniently overlooked by climate alarmists, making clear the case on global warming is far from closed." --Ted Cruz, U. S. Senator; Chairman, Senate Subcommittee on Science and Space
