Its The Sun
The evidence is in. Before we go bankrupt, read lt’s the Sun, Not Your SUV and make up your own mind. This book is an excellent presentation of the truth about the changes in temperature over the past 125 years. Increases in solar activity along with reduction of cloud coverage and thus Earth albedo (reflectivity) are the primary reason temperatures have increased.
- From the Foreword by Peter Dietze, 2001 IPCC Reviewer
Global temperatures have increased since 1880, up on average by 0.6° C in 1997-00. Temperatures have declined for the last decade by 20%. New data show that solar impacts have increased by the same amount and follow the zigzags in temperature from 1935 to1970 and this last decade's decline. The report from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) says that, based upon computer models, increased energy absorption by CO2 and other “greenhouse gases” (GHG) are overwhelmingly the basis for temperature increases.
But zigzag increases in global temperatures do not track with minor straight line increased energy absorption by GHG. Rather, such increases follow closely the major zigzag changes in solar impacts emanating from our sun, no different from the past millions of years as has been supported by multiple climatologists and other scientists. In short, if GHG play a role, it is minor in the 0.26% warming since 1880. The sun is responsible for the primary change, and political fixes such as envisaged in the Kyoto Treaty will not change global temperatures measurably but will mean a drastic decrease in worldwide output of goods, with calamitous effects on millions of people who are ill-prepared to suffer immense decreases in their standards of living.
John Zyrkowski begins with the irrefutable, uncontested raw data available from governmental sources on temperature fluctuations, solar impacts of radiation and magnetic flux, and CO2 absorption rates. He then uses Excel functions to demonstrate that the IPCC report used by proponents of the human cause of global warming is fatally flowed. The data doesn’t provide the answer the IPCC said it would. The worst case increase from GHG is 0.45° C.

About the author: John Zyrkowski is president of Lean Techniques, LLC and has served as Vice President of Planning and International Engineering for the Clark Equipment Company, Inc. He has personally managed five turn-arounds using his expertise in process engineering and team techniques. He advises over I50 top manufacturing managers on implementing world- class performance and design standards to become globally competitive from a U.S. cost base. He wrote a column for InMFG magazine and has been featured on the front cover of IMPO magazine.
John has also lived the way that the Global Warming community would envision for humanity as a Peace Corp Volunteer in Guatemala. He road a horse, plowed fields with oxen and a tree branch, and buried young children who died of starvation. More importantly, everyone who lived their is trying to come to the U.S.
