Description:

In this major assessment of leading climate-change skeptic Bjorn Lomborg, Howard Friel meticulously deconstructs the Danish statistician's claim that global warming is 'no catastrophe' by exposing the systematic misrepresentations and partial accounting that are at the core of climate skepticism. His detailed analysis serves not only as a guide to reading the global warming skeptics, but also as a model for assessing the state of climate science. With attention to the complexities of climate-related phenomena across a range of areas, Lomborg's "Deception" also offers readers an enlightening pole-to-pole review of some of today's most urgent climate concerns.

Review:

"Compelling. . . . Anyone who picks up "Cool It. . . "should have "Lomborg Deception" within reach to decide for themselves whether Lomborg's main claim to authority--that environmentalists make it up while he provides accurate facts--is so much hot air."--;i>Newsweek"--Sharon Begley "Newsweek "
