ISBN 978-1-4614-0570-2

Provides a detailed introduction to the dynamics of the Sun and how it affects Earth, both physically and culturally

The layouts and visuals in the book are truly stunning and the book includes a number of images never published before
Contains additional information and a large number of animations to go on SpringerExtras

The center of our Solar System is a star, one among billions of stars in our own galaxy. This star, which we call the Sun, gives rise to all life on Earth, is the driver of the photosynthesis in plants, and is the source of all food, energy, and fossil fuels on Earth.

For us humans, the Sun as seen with the naked eye appears as a static and quiet yellow disk in the sky. However, it is in fact a stormy and variable star and contributes much more than only light and heat. It is the source of the beautiful northern and southern lights and can affect our technology-based society in many ways.

The Sun is, like astronomy in general, a good entrance to natural science, since it affects us in so many ways and connects us to many other fields of science, such as physics, chemistry, biology, and meteorology.

Book: Frozen Britain by Ian McCaskill and Paul Hudson: Review: Is Britain's Future Freezing? by James Gillespie

WHEN Siberian conditions hit Britain this time last year everyone was caught out, including the weathermen.

Global warming, we had been told, meant the snowy conditions we remember from our childhoods would be just that: memories.

But following the bitter cold of the past two winters those predictions are beginning to look rather wide of the mark. now a new book, Frozen Britain by meteorologists Ian McCaskill and Paul Hudson, suggests that rather than facing milder winters we could be in for some more Arctic big freezes.

Certainly, despite everything that the global-warming lobby has suggested, our climate may be dictated by more than just man- made toxins pumped into the atmosphere. One of the key indicators – which has fallen out of favour with the computer-obsessed meteorologists of today – is the sun.

According to McCaskill and Hudson the clues to our future weather may lie with the sun.

“In the past few years it has been behaving very oddly,” Hudson says.

In the past, when there have been periods of relative inactivity on the surface of the sun they have been followed by years of cold winters.

Research published recently showed that in the early 1800s when activity on the sun was remarkably low for many years there was a dramatic change in the weather.

Book: John L. Casey: Cold Sun: Former White House Policy Advisor Presents Eye-Opening Climate Change Findings

Image AttachmentAl Gore’s 2006 An Inconvenient Truth placed the climate crisis in the hands of pop culture. The crisis? Global warming. The prevention of global warming became the rallying issue for environmentalists worldwide. However, a new book by Space and Science Research Corporation President John L. Casey presents a reasoned – and widely corroborated – assertion of the real climate crisis.

Three years in the making, Cold Sun (published by Trafford Publishing) imparts Casey’s in-depth analysis of how the recently started “solar hibernation” of the Sun has already ended global warming and is bringing record cold weather to the planet.

Relying heavily on scientific studies and the extensive research of experts from around the world, as well as his own original research, Casey has spelled out a compelling case that a new cold era has arrived.

In Cold Sun, Casey gives the evidence showing:

1. Global warming ended years ago

2. The Sun has entered an ominous state of “hibernation”

3. The Earth’s ocean and atmospheric temperatures are dropping rapidly and are now on a long term decline for the next 30 years

4. Glacial ice worldwide is growing rapidly and the threat of rising sea levels is over

5. How the ill-effects of current climate trends may lead to global agricultural devastation and social and economic upheaval

Cold Sun has received wide acclaim from scientists and other experts from around the world, including Dr. Boris Komitov, one of the world’s leading solar physics researchers and the author of the book’s foreword.

Book: Frozen Britain: How the Big Freeze of 2010 is the Beginning of Britain's New Mini Ice Age by Gavin Cooke

Image AttachmentAFTER nearly two weeks of snow and sub zero temperatures rivaling those of Siberia, the old joke about global warming being a good thing has had a new lease of life. So what has happened to doom-laden predictions of the world heating up as glaciers melt?

Mike Kelly reports from the Author claims we're in the grip of a mini ice age.

So says author Gavin Cooke in his book Frozen Britain. He began writing it in 2008 and it was published last year when experts were scratching their heads at the cause of the bitter winter of 2009/10 which brought England to a standstill. Some said it was a one-off event, with experts predicting snowfall becoming increasingly rare.

Now, 12 months on, the current sub zero spell makes last year look just a bit chilly. Just like kids enjoying ‘snow days’ off school, Gavin ought to be delighted with the cold snap. After all, he can justifiably say ‘I told you so’. But he’s as glum as the rest of us.

“I’m getting sick of it myself,” he said.

When Gavin, 48, of Monkseaton, North Tyneside, began writing the book the acclaimed documentary ‘An Inconvenient Truth’ by former US Vice President Al Gore about global warming, was still fresh in the memory. It detailed how carbon emissions were contributing towards the melting of the polar ice caps causing the world to heat up.

Of the 3°C that carbon dioxide contributes to the greenhouse effect, the first 20 ppm has a greater effect than the following 300 ppm. By the time we get to the current level of 388 ppm, each 100 ppm increment will produce only about 0.1° of warming. With the atmospheric carbon dioxide content currently rising at about 2 ppm per annum, temperature will rise at 0.1° of warming every 50 years. ,

If that is true, you will ask, how does the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) get its icecap-melting figure of 6°C for doubling of the pre-industrial level 280 ppm to 560 ppm? It is widely accepted that, in the absence of feedbacks, doubling would produce a rise of 1°C. The IPCC climate modelling assumes that the feedback from this rise will be positive; that is, that the extra heat will result in more water vapour in the atmosphere, which in turn will cause more heat to be trapped, and the system compounds away until 1°C gets turned into 6°C. As described, the Earth’s climate would be tremendously unstable, prone to thermal runaway at the slightest disturbance.

The real world evidence says the opposite. In late 2007, Dr. Roy Spencer of the University of Alabama published a paper analysing data from the Aqua satellite. Based on the response of tropical clouds. Dr. Spencer demonstrated that the feedback is negative. He calculates a 0.5°C warming for a doubling of the pre-industrial carbon dioxide level. Global warming, as caused by carbon dioxide, is real but it is also minuscule, and will be lost in the noise of the climate system.
