How Global Warming Hysteria Leads to Bad Science, Pandering Politicians, and Misguided Policies That Hurt the PoorBook - 2008
If you listen to the media, you would think that man-made environmental catastrophe was about to engulf the world and imperil civilization. From Al Gore to nightly jeremiads about CO2 emissions and carbon footprints, we are bombarded with alarmist reports that global warming is on the rise and that it's our fault. Here, climatologist Roy Spencer shows that fears about global warming are vastly exaggerated and are driven by politics, not truth. He shows that a global superstorm has already arrived--but it is a storm of hype and hysteria. This book combines impeccable scientific authority with wit and literary panache to expose the hysteria surrounding global warming and climate change. Spencer shows that the earth is far more resilient than exopessimists pretend and that increasing wealth and technology ingenuity, far from being the enemies of the environment, are the only means we possess to solve environmental problems as they arise.--From publisher description.
