Climate Change: The Facts 2024

The fourth book in the IPA’s landmark Climate Change: The Facts series asks the hard questions, including: how much of climate change is natural? And within what limits does the Earth’s climate change?

Contributors will address critical questions including: what is the role of the sun and clouds, how long are natural climate cycles, and how is the northern hemisphere affected by changes in the Antarctic? What are the sources of error in the IPCC models?

A key question in climate science is the effect of the cloud-sunlight-reflectivity thermostat mechanism. In the early 1980s, Richard Lindzen, then working as a meteorologist at MIT, was surprised to find clouds were a major factor in Earth’s radiative budget.  Fast forward forty years and John Clauser, winner of the 2022 Nobel Prize for Physics, will go further, explaining that variations in cloud-cover provide a very powerful thermostat that controls and stabilises temperature. 

Climate Change: The Facts 2024 will include a policy section exposing our deteriorating energy security, analysing intermittent renewables and the affordability myth, and examining the problematic origins of terms like ‘net zero’ and ‘climate emergency’. 

Editors John Abbot and Jennifer Marohasy ensure the issues are juxtaposed with a focus on the seldom-discussed natural factors causing and influencing climate change. They have already recruited a formidable team of contributors, with more to be announced soon.
