Review: The greatest Dogma of our times
By Dr. Khalil Ahmad
 
This is 2017, April 21. Breaking news is flashing on the screens of news channels al over the world:
 
“A whole tribe living deep into the woods in Bangladesh arrested by International Climate Police on the charges of using fossil fuels ”
 
The day is not far away when news like this will no longer remain breaking for the news-hunters. The book, “Climatism! Science, Common Sense, and the 21st Century’s Hottest Topic,” provides enough evidence to that effect. First, it warns us that if the Barbarian march of Climatists is not halted, we will soon find us facing devil on the one side of us, and the deep sea on the other. The devil is the Climatist Procrustes, and the deep sea, the regressive economic and societal growth. Second, this book gathers in one place all the evidence showing how the Climatist Camp is going on its backfoot and how the realism, science and common sense is making a comeback.
 
This book by Steve Goreham, an electrical engineer and business executive, is sort of a shorter encyclopedia containing all the salient features of the debate on the notion of global warming. The plan of the book comprises three parts. In the first part, it examines the science on which global warming alarmism bases itself. The second part weighs the remedies suggested, applied and enforced to stop the “global warming.” The viability of renewable energy solutions, that Climatists believe humanity must adopt to avoid greenhouse gas emissions, is evaluated in the third part.
 
No doubt, the writer is neither a Climatist Alarmist – nor a Climate Skeptic either. He is a Climate Realist, a position that derives its inspiration from sound science and common sense. He presents arguments and evidence from both sides – and lets the reader see and find the truth himself, though he does express his own position too.
 
Instead of building his case, like the Climatists, on unsound science and political ideology, and such old streaks as ‘Back to Nature,’ Rousseau’s anti-industrialization revolt, a not so recent form embodied in the Club of Rome: “The Earth has cancer and the cancer is man.” (1974), and a more recent form in the notion of Sustainable Development, the writer presents all the evidence and data that is being produced by those who have no say in the UN IPCC, and are being “refuted” by popular interests and governments, but who have authority and honest commitment in their fields of science.
 
Thus, Steve’s encyclopedic book is probably the first such work that prepares the ground for a full-scale assault on the greatest dogma of our times – Climatism. As it exposes the inquisitional tendencies of the self- proclaimed do-gooders, it comes in handy for all those who need to face and fight the dogma with full force. The book deserves to be stationed, by the Realists, in the forefront to win the war against the Climatists.
