The subtitle: "The Predictable Distortion of Global Warming by Scientists, Politicians, and the Media" really says it all.
Patrick J. Michaels is research professor of environmental studies at the University of Virginia and senior fellow in environmental studies at the Cato Institute. He is past president of the American Association of State Climatologists, winner of the American Library Association’s worldwide competition for public service writing, and an author of the 2003 climate science "Paper of the Year," awarded by the Association of American Geographers.
"This powerful, lucid, fluent book is a triumph of science over superstition. Pat Michaels, a gifted climatologist, tells the straight truth about the hysteria and ignorance surrounding climate change and how the scientific establishment has been led astray."--James K. Glassman, Resident Fellow, American Enterprise Institute
"Pat Michaels has written another fascinating and useful book. . . . I urge everyone, regardless of the extent of his science background, to read Meltdown. But be prepared to change your way of thinking. Just let go of your preconceived ideas, strap yourself in, and enjoy the ride!"--George H. Taylor, Past President, American Association of State Climatologists
"[A]n exquisite dissection of the global warming hype...NATURAL global warming and NATURAL global cooling has existed throughout the history of the earth. Michaels does an oustanding job of showing long-term data trends...that indicate climate changes are cyclic....Michaels also is to be commended for showing how flawed governmental policies have driven global warming science, and the associated conflict of interest involving funding and publication."--George D. Klein, amazon.com reviewer
