This book is divided up into several sections, but the best is Beck's demolition of the idea of global warming. Gore's pathetic and lame collection of 'facts' is so skewed to the left that it almost ends up on the right. I would prefer a little bit of histrionics by Beck than have to listen to a robotic monotone by Gore. He is a little bit sexist, particularly about how to score with your wife by watching some dreary English 'bonnet movie' with her, but aren't all of us a little bit that way? I liked his sharing of his past history and admire him (and Tanya) for his accomplishments. I found the whole book interesting and have listened to it on CD as well. I had to get both versions to review it on my radio network and gladly paid for them myself. Glen Beck has made me a watcher of CNN, something that I had quit some time back because of the liberal bias. Liberals, tree huggers, anarchists and Gorebots will not like the book, but that is their loss. I like to listen to the CD version when I am eating my supper of caribou steaks garnished with breast of spotted owl. John Edwards and his monstrous home bought with ambulance chasing are covered in a hilarious way. If you have brains you will enjoy the book. If you don't (can you say liberal?) you will hate it. Either way Beck doesn't bore us.

Regarding CO2 and Natural Disasters

Re: 'the truth' that as CO2 has increased, deaths from extreme weather have decreased... as quoted in the book Synopsis Beck assumes a correlation without providing any evidence to prove this statement, merely suggesting that two facts disprove a theory (i.e. CO2 increases from pollution are responsible for more intense weather). Beck's statements completely - and conveniently - ignore any number of other factors that are more likely to relate to a decrease in deaths from violent weather. The increased power and accuracy of meteorological equipment that monitors and predicts violent weather stricter safety standards for vehicles making them better able to withstand the elements - even a decrease in the number of people whose occupations require them to work on the ocean due to increased industrialization and mechanization - ALL of these factors have more relevance to the decrease in violent weather deaths than Beck's idea that air pollution is making us safer.

    Tired of 'liberal bias'

    The problem is the lack of empirical research - just opinions. Please have some class and don't throw all liberals under the bus. To call those of us who are liberals as uneducated is insulting and rude. I am well educated - and I look at both sides. That is what I see as being balanced. I refrain from name calling I just don't agree with conservative views.

    I know it will be an outstanding book

    Glenn Beck is my favorite Radio program. I am addicted to his A.M. broadcasts. I will pick the book up soon .... I am certain that it will be excellent reading, and looking forward to more of the same.
