Dr Jack Barrett started his education at Feniscowles County Primary School, near
His main studies were Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics and Woodwork. Next came six years at the Victoria University of Manchester studying Chemistry and acquiring a PhD in physical chemistry for research into the Photolysis of Liquid Water. He then had a lecturing career at the Universities of Hertfordshire (Hatfield College of Technology as it was),
Including around seventy papers on various aspects of the chemistry and spectroscopy of small molecules he is the author of ten textbooks of which the latest ones are mentioned below.
Three tutorial chemistry texts published by the Royal Society of Chemistry are: No. 5, Structure and Bonding, No. 9 Atomic Structure and Periodicity, and No. 21 Inorganic Chemistry in Aqueous Solution.
His interest in climate change developed with the 1992 Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change [IPCC] (Cambridge University Press), not just because of the global importance of the topic, but because of his interest in the spectroscopy of small molecules which include the ‘greenhouse’ gases H2O, CO2, CH4, N2O and O3. He became sceptical about climate modelling and what seemed to him the exaggerated claims emerging from the computer programmes about our future global climate.
