I’m shocked. Shocked that oil money and think tanks are propping up the climate change deniers’ book peddling operations. /

Key takeaways from the study:

1) More than 90% of the climate change denial books are not peer reviewed.

2) 72% have a verifiable link to conservative think tanks (of 108 books on climate change).

3) The number would be demonstrably higher but for the fact that the balance of those anti-climate change screeds were self-published, instead of going through an established publishing house or conservative think tank.

4) Of those self-published screeds, most are written by those who are not climate change experts, but are rather self-professed experts who lack actual degrees in climatology or other related sciences.

5) There’s a religious component to a significant number of those screeds published by the conservative think tanks - 17 of 75 have religious overtones.

6) Of the 15 authors who have published more than 1 climate change denial book, 14 of them are affiliated with conservative think tanks (which receive far more eyeballs than those who self-publish and are therefore more influential among the conservative movement and the climate denial crowd).

“1) More than 90% of the climate change denial books are not peer reviewed.”

Not like there’s anything there to peer review. We’ve known the relevant physical properties of the atmosphere’s component gases for over 120 years.

We’ve used that knowledge to produce computer models of heat transfer and mass transfer for about as long as we’ve had computers. Climate scientists use the same basic equations and sometimes literally the same software code as designers of air conditioners and chemical plants.

There’s really not much there you can quibble with and put through peer review.
