Publisher's Summary

The big media have spoken on the question of global warming, and the debate is officially over. "Be afraid, be very afraid", warns Time magazine. But have Al Gore and his environmentalist allies really proven their case? Not even close, says Christopher C. Horner. In The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming (and Environmentalism), he exposes the shoddy science, plain dishonesty, and hidden political agenda behind the biggest phony environmental scare since, well, since green predictions of catastrophic global cooling in the 1970s.
The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming (and Environmentalism) provides a provocative, entertaining, and well documented exposé of some of the most shamelessly politicized pseudoscience we are likely to see in our relatively cool lifetimes.
Hot topic: listen to more about global warming.

Not great for Audio

This type of book definitely lends itself more toward print. There are too many references, and asides that don't work well in an audio format. If you have the option, I would choose the print edition of this book.

Must Read

If you have any doubt at all regarding the science and truthfulness of Al Gore and his band of mindless followers then give this book a listen.

I used to think Religion was one of the worst users of peoples fears to get their way, but there is a new contender. Global Warming Alarmist might even be more dangerous than Religion for taking away a persons ability to see both sides of an issue. They use every trick in a Cult handbook with practiced ease and modern skill.

This book is not about how perfect humans are, or that there is no need for improvement. It is a here-to-fore unseen side of the issue. The critical side that requires acknowledgment and not to be simply tossed aside as a EXXON shill. It may shock people to realize that questioning god does not make you the devil. (Although if you do belive that then don't bother reading this book. It will just upset you.)

This book is a good starting place. If you don't belive the authors claims look them up for yourself. The evidence is there and some people (like me) need to be nudged in the right direction. I never questioned the greenhouse effect. Why whould I? What would they have to gain? Therein lay Al Gore brilliance! because, in fact, they have much to gain.

Even though I know how a real greenhouse works I never noticed how silly the global greenhouse argument is until I gave it the slightest thought and most likly wouldn't have unless I read this book.

I don't want the enviroment to be wrecked because of me, but I'm not going to buy every air-headed claim that I'm to blame when I'm not. It's in my best interest to find out.

Enjoy if nothing else the arguments, life isn't as black and white as Al Gore whould like you to think.

Reccommended

Very deep and good overall, but a little anti-European and pro-American, for no apparent reason...

Paid for by fossil fuel industry’s ExxonMobil?

If you take a look at the picture at the paperback book cover the bottom of the book says that Mr Horner is a senior fellow of the Competitive Enterprise Institute. One of the CEI's major funders is ExxonMobil, which has somewhat of an incentive to doubt climate change. The fact that Mr Horner is a business man and not a scientist is also notable.
