The book titled The Satanic Gases is one of the most informative books on the market about the popular global warming issues. Not only does this book inform people of the different takes on global warming but it leaves readers with a vast knowledge of what exactly is happening in our world today. This particular book points out that despite popular belief global warming is due to the greenhouse effect of the earth. This book takes the reader into a new world of different knowledge being over looked. Not only does the author describe the damage and effects of global warming with such a vast vocabulary but he leaves readers questioning things they knew nothing about. This book, unlike other informative books on the market, use easy to understand vocabulary. The facts of this book are hard hitting but will leave you asking yourself more questions about what you can do to help. This book includes a wide variety of actual data from social and scientific context. This book is definitely one of the most informative easy to read books out there. In my mind I give this book 4 out of 5 for an outstanding veiw of what is actually happening. In my mind i believe that schools world wide should make this book a requried learning book for all enviromental science classes.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This should be required reading by everyone at NBC and the NY times. It is surprising how in this day and age, science can take a back seat to the political machine.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

As an environmental science major, I received this book as a gift. Despite my aversion for literature so dismissive of the modern environmental movement, I read the book. While the piece is well written and reminds the reader to take radical environmental doomsday claims with a grain of salt, the benefits of reading this book stop there. I must point out that global warming, and the large impact humans have had on the process, are ideas embraced by the vast majority of the scientific community as a hard reality that future human actions must remedy. The general rule of environmentalism is to not wait for these natural disasters to appear in order to attain undoubtable proof, but to understand that the interactions within the biosphere are complex and admittedly not fully understood, and therefore a proactive, not reactive, approach would be the wisest path to take. I am keeping this book as a devil's advocate in my collection. I'm not too worried about the book changing the minds of the public, since it appears its main audience has been those who are already convinced of the fallacies of conservation advocates.Was this review helpful?

This is a great read. The authors know the subject very well and give the reader exciting insight. The trouble is that they seem not to take it seriously. A ratification of the Kyoto Protocol, based on nonsense as the authors clearly point out, will be disasterous. The DDT ban started all of this. The consequences were horrible. Then came acid rain with poison falling from the sky, the horrible asbestos campaign which furthered a few careers and ruined school districts and the benign asbestos industry. And then we had the ozone disaster which was not but costs us all dearly. And now we are made to think that global warming is a threat although there is nothing we can do about it. Next, we will be told that we are ruining the fresh water supplies of the world. It is not a joke. It is dead serious.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.

This book rocks the 'common knowledge' about global warming. It puts forth some stunningly straightforward arguments that challenge what we hear about the disastrous effects of global warming from the popular media. It does this with a strong scientific foundation; but don't worry- the science is delivered in a form that is as easy to understand as the Discovery Channel, and very entertaining. Michaels and Balling poke some well-deserved fingers at the pseudo-science that sacrifices truth for some sensational headlines.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
