About the book

Here is a book on climate written for people from all walks of life, not just science boffins. The reader is invited to enter the climate debate, likened to a twisting maze or hall of mirrors, with dead-ends, illusions, traps – that are the lies, misinformation, over-simplifications and false prophecies on both sides.

The book was written by an award-winning scientist, who went on four expeditions to Antarctica with the United States Office of Polar Programs.

Very soon, the reader learns that the debate is not just simply about carbon dioxide, which many would have us think.

A clever book that poses questions and will challenge your thinking about the climate debate.

William Happer, Professor of Physics Emeritus, Princeton University:

“Mirrors and Mazes is written for intelligent laymen who like to think for themselves. The book reviews all of the issues that touch on the current climate debate: the nature of greenhouse gases; clouds; the sun; sea level; extreme weather; polar ice; etc.

I am especially fond of Mirrors and Mazes. It would be an excellent addition to the personal library of anyone who wants to understand climate facts, stripped of propaganda and emotion.”

Dr Willie Soon, Senior Researcher, Solar and Stellar Physics Division, Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics:

"Mirrors and Mazes is a beacon of light to see through the cloudy attempts to demonize CO2 as the satanic gas of our times. It is a must read and welcome contribution to the educational aspect of this hot scientific debate."

About the author

Dr Howard Brady has a Masters of Science from Northern Illinois University, DeKalb, U.S., and a PhD from Macquarie University, Sydney. His research used microscopic fossils to charter the past climatic environments in Antarctica over the last 15 million years.

In 2011, Howard received the Alumnus Scientist of the Year Award from Northern Illinois University, for his contributions to climate science and the community. He worked in Antarctica on four mainland expeditions, under grants from the United States Office of Polar Programs.

He has published scientific articles in periodicals such as the Journal of Glaciology, Nature Magazine and Science Magazine. He also contributed to Antarctic Geoscience, a book released by the Scientific Committee on Antarctic Science in 1982.

He is a member of the Explorers Club of New York and the Australian Microscope and Microanalysis Society. In 2015, He was elected a Member of the Australian Academy of Forensic Sciences due to a lifelong interest in human error as a factor in serious accidents.
