    Anonymous, you come to a pretty strong definitive conclusion for someone who only read bits and pieces of the book.

    This "book" is some kind of sick joke. I read bits and pieces but could not continue: it turned my stomach. It promotes a "Beavis & Butthead" style of smirking at science and scientists. It contains footnote numbers but not footnotes or references. You can almost tell that the people behind it were the same ones fighting the idea that smoking is bad for your health -- and nicotine is incredibly addictive (take it from me, it took me 30 years to quit). It absolutely lies about the positions of eminent climate scientists and people who think that melting Greenland and Antarctic is a bad idea: for example, it implies that both Al Gore and James Hansen reject the Milankovitch theory of orbital forcing as the best explanation for ice ages, saying that they hold that it is CO2. This is a lie of the first order: both Gore and Hansen know that ice ages are orbitally forced (about every 100,000 years) but along with almost all other scientists know that the magnitude of the temperature changes can only be explained when all factors -- including CO2 -- are taken into account. If you really want to know more, listen to registered Republican scientist Dr. Richard B. Alley by googling A23A and hitting the first link (his talk in front of a large audience of scientists at the American Geophysical Union 2009 Fall Meeting -- at which he received the prestigious Bjerknes award). If you enjoy being lied to so that you can feel better about driving your
    Hummer, then by all means get hold of this (Heartless Institute will send it to you free -- please do not buy it!).
