The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming (and Environmentalism)
Described at amazon.com as: "This latest installment in the P.I.G. series provides a provocative, entertaining, and well-documented expose of some of the most shamelessly politicized pseudo-science we are likely to see in our relatively cool lifetimes."
From the Inside Flap:
The Left's last best chance to gain a stranglehold on our political system and economy For decades, environmentalism has been the Left's best excuse for increasing government control over our actions in ways both large and small. It's for Mother Earth! It's for the children! It's for the whales! But until now, the doomsday-scenario environmental scares they've trumped up haven't been large enough to justify the lifestyle restrictions they want to impose. With global warming, however, greenhouse gasbags can argue that auto emissions in Ohio threaten people in Paris, and that only "global governance" (Jacques Chirac's words) can tackle such problems. Now, in The Politically Incorrect Guide(tm) to Global Warming and Environmentalism, Christopher C. Horner tears the cover off the Left's manipulation of environmental issues for political purposes--and lays out incontrovertible evidence for the fact that catastrophic man-made global warming is just more Chicken-Little hysteria, not actual science.
Christopher C. Horner is a senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute, an acknowledged expert on global warming legislation and regulation, and has spoken before Senate committees and the European Parliament.
interview with Christopher Horner at FrontPage magazine.com by Jamie Glazov, Monday, March 12, 2007:
Horner: "In January 2006 out of morbid fascination I subjected myself to Al Gore personally showing his Power Point at a weekly gathering I attend. It certainly was visually compelling, particularly, as one scientist in attendance noted, if the viewer had no understanding of the issue. But having spent a decade devoted professionally to almost nothing but the issues relevant to this subject, and despite his past record, I remained struck by the remarkable liberties Gore took to create a scientific, historical, and political mythology."
[And if you've wondered about the constantly repeated accusations that anyone expressing skepticism about the Global Warning disaster scenarios must be in the pay of Big Oil etc., etc., this interview also provides some revealing insights to which side is really raking it in. JPH]
"It's enough to turn you purple with rage. Power-hungry politicians blacklist scientists who reject global warming alarmism... U.S. Senators threaten companies that fund climate-change dissenters... Mainstream media outlets openly reject the notion of "balance"... Unscrupulous scientists candidly admit the need to twist the facts to paint an uglier picture in order to keep the faucet of government money flowing... In the name of "saving the planet," anything goes.But now, Christopher Horner -- bestselling author of The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming, and himself the target of environmentalist dirty tricks and smears -- blows the whistle on this campaign of lies and threats."
