“The fact that global surface temperatures have not followed the expected global warming pattern is now widely accepted.”

The uncertainty of science: “The fact that global surface temperatures have not followed the expected global warming pattern is now widely accepted.”

This quote above refers to scientists in the climate field, who are now admitting that for the past 20 years the climate has shown no warming, despite the continuing increase in CO2 in the atmosphere and their computer models that all predicted increased temperatures because of that CO2.

Conscious Choice cover

Now available in hardback and paperback as well as ebook!


From the press release: In this ground-breaking new history of early America, historian Robert Zimmerman not only exposes the lie behind The New York Times 1619 Project that falsely claims slavery is central to the history of the United States, he also provides profound lessons about the nature of human societies, lessons important for Americans today as well as for all future settlers on Mars and elsewhere in space.

Conscious Choice: The origins of slavery in America and why it matters today and for our future in outer space, is a riveting page-turning story that documents how slavery slowly became pervasive in the southern British colonies of North America, colonies founded by a people and culture that not only did not allow slavery but in every way were hostile to the practice.  
Conscious Choice does more however. In telling the tragic history of the Virginia colony and the rise of slavery there, Zimmerman lays out the proper path for creating healthy societies in places like the Moon and Mars.


“Zimmerman’s ground-breaking history provides every future generation the basic framework for establishing new societies on other worlds. We would be wise to heed what he says.” —Robert Zubrin, founder of founder of the Mars Society.


All editions are available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and all book vendors, with the ebook priced at $5.99 before discount. The ebook can also be purchased direct from my ebook publisher, ebookit, in which case you don't support the big tech companies and I get a bigger cut much sooner.


Autographed printed copies are also available at discount directly from me (hardback $24.95; paperback $14.95; Shipping cost for either: $5.00). Just email me at zimmerman @ nasw dot org.

    So, in another 10-15 years the media and alarmist agitators might get that message.

    I am not one who believes, from what evidence I can see, that CO2 drives surface temperatures as is promoted by the Cap and Trade, tax the world to fund the U.N. crowd but I will ask a question here about something called Geo Engineering also referred to as Chem Trails. If you are not aware of them look at the differences from day to day and compare a “normal” con trail from a high flying jet which disperses in a few minutes and con trails that hang in the atmosphere for hours, upon hours, upon hours.

    My following question may seem paradoxical related to what I just wrote but there does seem to be a program of some kind of active atmospheric manipulation being undertaken and that does not happen for no reason. In addition I think the discussion should be about pollution as a whole not just a quantifiable compound like CO2 which can be taxed. We are all ecologists or should be.

    Q: Is this Geo Engineering an attempt at moderating surface temperature in order to continue the use of oil based fuels to produce energy in order to lengthen the life and therefore the power structure of oil and the people who control/own oil as that source of energy?
