In this accessible and beautifully produced full colour book The Age's brilliant political cartoonist John Spooner and leading environmental scientist Professor Bob Carter combine with colleagues to answer a series of critical and highly controversial questions about the politics and science of climate change.

Are human industrial carbon dioxide emissions causing dangerous global warming? If so, then climate change would indeed represent one of the great moral challenges of our time.

But is it possible that instead the so-called consensus science around global warming - produced by lavishly funded research institutes, and with its own international political lobby organization, the United Nations Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) - is wrong?

Could it be that the emperor has no clothes?

Accessible, clearly written and illustrated with simple scientifc illustrations, and accompanied by Spooner's wry and telling cartoons, Taxing Air answers — without the spin, evasions or propaganda that pollutes most offcial writing on climate change — every question you have about global warming but have been too intimidated by the oppressive ‘consensus’ to ask.

All you ever wanted to know about the

science and politics of global warming but were afraid to ask.

'I could not put Taxing Air down ... Responding to vested interests, western politicians have already wasted trillions of dollars to frighten people with lies about industrial carbon dioxide emissions.
In fact, today’s global temperature lies well within life’s limits – indeed, the present-day is cooler than much of previous geological time.The gas of life rather than a pollutant, atmospheric carbon dioxide has nurtured all the forms of organism on planet Earth for many hundreds of mil- lions of years, as is so clearly explained in this beautifully written and illustrated book.'
Professor David Bellamy, OBE, President, Conservation Foundation, UK; 
Trustee, World Land Trust (1992-2002)
'Taxing Air is an outstanding contribution to the growing literature that examines and calls to account the climate alarmism of the past two decades. ... it provides an accurate, easily understood explanation of the many scientific and technical issues that comprise today’s climate science.
Equally important, it examines the history and exposes the duplicity of some of the individuals and organisations who have vested interests in creating and maintaining horrific visions of an imagined global warming future. The book would make a splendid gift to certain members of the climate science establishment.'
Dr. Art Raiche, CSIRO chief research scientist (retired)

Just 8,000 years ago, there was virtually 
no summer sea-ice in the Arctic Ocean

Sea-level rise is natural, and declining in rate 

Australian rainfall has not decreased over the last 100 years 

A previous Australian drought lasted 69 years

By catchment management, the Murray-Darling Basin now 
contains almost 3 times as much water as it held naturally

Global air temperature has not increased for the last 16 years, despite an 8% increase in CO2
Global ocean temperature is also steady or cooling slightly

Australian territory absorbs up to

20 times the amount of CO2 that we emit

The CO2 tax will cost about $1,000/person/year; and rising

The result of reducing Australian CO2 emissions by 5% 
by 2020 will be a theoretical (and unmeasurable) 
cooling of between 0.0007O and 0.00007O C by 2100

No scientist can tell you whether the world will be 
warmer or cooler than today in 2020

Just a selection of the fascinating facts provided in answer to more 
than 100 basic questions about global warming and climate change 
that are covered in the book.

Persons ordering prior to that date at
and prior to bookstore availability, will receive a 
personally signed copy of the book


  1. At least the lefts cartoonists have it right.

  2. Will he be there for long...Or if they want to get ahead at the age maybe they could make him chief editor

  3. That's not true. This idea Szajka Rothschild (occultist), Scull & Boness, Rockefeller, the U.S. government, the CIA, the Bilderberg Group. These are the enemies with whom you have to fight. Sow fear and destruction throughout the world. In any form. They think they are the Lords of the world. I tell you. Their. the end is imminent.
