How one climate skeptic is making life ‘Inconvenient’ for Al Gore

A self-published e-book by a leading climate skeptic challenging the science behind Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Sequel” is outselling the film’s companion book on Amazon.

Mr. Gore’s book was ranked 16,459th among paid Amazon e-books as of midday Friday, while the e-book “An Inconvenient Deception: How Al Gore Distorts Climate Science and Energy Policy,” was ranked 328th.

The 81-page rebuttal was written by climatologist Roy W. Spencer, principal research scientist at the University of Alabama in Huntsville, who criticized the Gore movie and book as “chock-full of bad science, bad policy, and factual errors.”

In a head-to-head matchup in the Amazon category of climatology, the Spencer book was ranked first Thursday while Mr. Gore’s handbook came in 11th.

The comparison isn’t entirely scientific. Mr. Spencer’s e-book is the more recent release, appearing on Amazon last week, while Mr. Gore’s was published July 25 by Rodale Books.

Mr. Gore’s book is also available in paperback and audio, which has presumably cut into his Kindle sales, while Mr. Spencer’s is only available in e-book form.

At the same time, Mr. Spencer self-published his rebuttal with no paid advertising, while “An Inconvenient Sequel” benefited from the film’s publicity blitz by Paramount Pictures and Mr. Gore’s own international promotional tour.

“Maybe people are finally wising up to Mr. Gore,” Mr. Spencer said on his Global Warming blog.

“An Inconvenient Deception” was also ranked first in Kindle short reads for science and math, and first in the environment category.

Mr. Gore’s 320-page book “An Inconvenient Sequel: Truth to Power,” is described as “your action handbook to learn the science, find your voice, and help solve the climate crisis.”

    I am a long skeptic of Al Gore, Having read his first alarmist book,”Earth in the Balance”, printed in 1991. I have started to read Roy Spencer’s book, “An Inconvenient Deception: How Al Gore Distorts Climate Science and Energy Policy “. I have long admired The accomplishments of Dr. Roy Spencer, but disagree when he states ” As Fossil Fuel burning has boosted the CO2 content of the atmosphere from an estimated 270 parts per million to about 400 parts per million etc. I believe that fossil fuel burning is an insignificant contributor to the increase in CO2 in the last half of the 20th century.

    Dr. Fred Singer of University of Virginia has stated that he believes approximately 95% of the increase in CO2 has been due to natural causes. I am 83 years old and have observed 6 climate changes and have been to 4 presentations on climate change by the Rutgers Climate Institute. Here is my thesis on how the CO2 rose during the late half of the 20th century. I believe my thesis is the most reasonable explanation for this increase.

      Robert, even the UN IPCC admits total human contribution to atmospheric CO2 concentration over the past 100 years has been a paltry 4% (max).

    So an actual climate scientist’s book is out ranking ” the earth has a
    fever ” promoter 50 to 1 . Hmm I wonder why ?
    Couldn’t be all those failed alarmist over exaggerations or something so inconvenient as the pure hypocrisy of so many
    in the man made global warming deceit industry.
    Where has mini -Al gone ?
