Harry A. Taylor, Jr., a retired space scientist who worked at the Naval Research Laboratory in Washington DC, and later at the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, has written a 57-page report built around synopses of the following five books:

1. Heaven and Earth, by Ian Plimer

2. Climate Confusion, by Roy Spencer

3. The Chilling Stars, by Henrik Svensmark & Nigel Calder

4. Unstoppable Global Warming … Every 1,500 Years, by S. Fred Singer and Dennis Avery

5. The Maunder Minimum, by Willie Soon and Steven Yaskell

6. The Deniers, by Lawrence Solomon

Taylor writes:

“I am a research scientist and have published many refereed journal articles. I have encountered and successfully confronted the degradation of science by shoddy research and even fraud. I am thus naturally intrigued by what I perceive to be unjustified perpetuation of the climate change crusade. I am thus motivated to try to assist in calling attention to the opposing science.

“In this review, I will present some critical issues addressed in each of six outstanding books which present “the other side of the story”…one that you very likely have not heard. I emphasize that even though I use the term “other side of the story” for convenience, climate is a complex process and thus the other side of the story has, of itself, a number of sides.

“Though I am persuaded by the historical record that Nature presides over climate, I will not attempt to convince you of any particular theory. I will offer my own opinions and philosophy but I will try to make that clear. This report is not for publication, nor for gain of any kind. I simply offer you a research scientist’s perspective of some the views of credible professional scientists who are persuaded that Nature rules Climate.”
