Frederick Seitz (1911 - 2008) was an American
physicist and a pioneer of solid state physics. Seitz was the 4th
president of Rockefeller University from 1968-1978, and the 17th
president of the United States National Academy of Sciences from
1962-1969. Seitz was the recipient of the National Medal of
Science, NASA's Distinguished Public Service Award, and other
S. Fred Singer (1924-2020) was a research fellow at The Independent Institute, president of the Science and Environmental Policy Project, and a distinguished research fellow at the Institute for Space Science and Technology. He was the first director of the U.S. Weather Satellite Service. He was the former director of the Center for Atmospheric and Space Physics, and former chief scientist, U.S. Department of Transportation.
David R. Legates is a research fellow at the Independent Institute, deputy assistant secretary of commerce for observation and prediction at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and professor of climatology in the Department of Geography at the University of Delaware. His research has appeared in such scientific journals as the International Journal of Climatology, Journal of Geophysical Research, and Theoretical and Applied Climatology.
Anthony R. Lupo is a research fellow at the Independent Institute and chairman and professor in the Department of Soil, Environmental, and Atmospheric Science at the University of Missouri. A member of Working Groups I and III for the IPCC, Dr. Lupo is the author of over 135 peer-reviewed studies in such scientific journals as the Quarterly Journal of the Royal Meteorological Society, Journal of the Atmospheric Sciences, Journal of Climate, and Climate Dynamics.
"Hot Talk, Cold Science is an excellent book on the politics
and science of climate change." --Elliott D. Bloom, Professor
Emeritus, Stanford Linear Accelerator Laboratory; Member of the
team with Jerome I. Friedman, Henry W. Kendall and Richard E.
Taylor who received the 1990 Nobel Prize in Physics
"Hot Talk, Cold Science by Fred Singer (with David Legates and Anthony Lupo), is one of the most important contributions undermining the economically and politically problematic and highly controversial scientific doctrine of man-made global warming." --Vaclav Klaus, former President, Czech Republic
"As contentious as the climate issue was and is, I was always impressed by Fred Singer's gentle demeanor within that storm. I suppose he remained calm because he sought to ground his views in the actual evidence of climate observations. In his day, reproducible evidence was the foundation on which one was taught to test one's claims and he simply went about the business of checking out the latest theorized conjectures about the climate. Here in Hot Talk, Cold Science, he updates his findings regarding those conjectures, as well as giving a tour of the political landscape that melded itself to the climate-alarm agenda. His conclusions should give us all a modest sense of gentle calmness--that same calmness he carried to the end of his days." --John R. Christy, Director, Earth System Science Center, University of Alabama in Huntsville
"When debating environmental policy, we frequently hear from scientists, climate activists, and public officials who claim 'the science is settled' with regard to global warming. This book is a great reminder that the data are mixed at best. We should follow the science. Hot Talk, Cold Science provides the reader with important facts and evidence consistently and conveniently overlooked by climate alarmists, making clear the case on global warming is far from closed." --Ted Cruz, U. S. Senator; Chairman, Senate Subcommittee on Science and Space
