Nigel Calder takes the pulse of science, as the author of Magic Universe and Einstein's Universe. A hero from the glory days of discovery half a century ago, before the sophistry about man-made global warming invaded climate science, will be speaking at the Fourth International Conference on Climate Change in Chicago, 16-18 May 2010. Kukla at work in Czechoslovakia, from The Weather Machine (book). Photo by courtesy of G. Kukla. In the 1960s a respected geologist in his native Czechoslovakia, George Kukla, counted the layers of loess – windblown mineral dust ground by the glaciers and laid down in the region during recent ice ages.

A discussion of the causes of natural disasters and major historical climatic changes provides a background for an examination of current climatic trends and the possibility of a future ice age

Calder wrote this short book in the early 70's. At the time I was teaching high school and took it in to discuss with coworkers. I made it available for others to read. Most poo-pooed the idea of global warming then and the book disappeared. It's nice to recover it and reconnect with ideas that were out there before there time. Calder goes a long way to describe the warming and eventual cooling process. What he didn't anticipate was carbon overload from human activity.

Nigel Calder is a very good writer for taking large technical knowledge and presenting it in an everyday language. Which helps to understand the topic that he's writing about. The Weather Machine takes you through the system that travels around the world and shows how ideas of how the weather worked have changed over the years. Very educational, but a bit dry in parts.

Nigel Calder's text provides a pretty good summary of Earth's weather systems and where they come from. It also does a good job of debunking the global "ice age" hysteria that was present in the news media at the time - and in the process it gives one insights into why the climate might be warming right now (hint - it's part of a natural process and it doesn't involve CO2). A classic - wish I could still find my copy.
