Basically the book deals the subject of global warming, and points out that it is nothing more than a media/political propogated myth. It has some very convincing arguments which point out how little we know about the environment and the climate, therefore how little ability we have to predict…not determine or calculate…but how bad we are at even guessing what it might do.
Sure Carbon Dioxide levels are rising and there is supposedly an increase in the average global temperature – but all of this does little to prove that the earth is actually getting warmer, and if it is, that it is a result of human activity. My aim here is not to argue the question of whether global warming exists or not, but to say that if you are going to take up that argument, you should definately read this book first. If you’ve no interest in global warming or arguing, you should still read the book because it does a great job of highlighting the sad fact that the media and politicians love to keep the population scared – keeps them in check!
