The graph on page 18 has the labels of the left and right y-axes reversed, thus making it appear that rising temperature generally follows rising CO2. In fact, the reverse is true: Ice core samples show that rising temperatures precede rising CO2 by several years. This is inconvenient to the authors' premise but they have pledged to correct the graph in subsequent editions.

Josef Goebbels would have been proud of Ms. David. That disgusting little Nazi made 'the big lie' work by telling the same lies over and over until the gullible people in Germany believed them. He didn't have Photoshop to edit photographs like Ms. David has done, even though her efforts are clumsy and painfully obviously distortions. Her graphs are trimmed to eliminate the true trends and are pitiful efforts to lie by telling half truths. Make sure your child, or impressionable adult friends avoid this hemipygial work of doctored pseudoscience. Or read it for a good laugh. Also, get The Sky's NOT Falling by Fretwell for a good expose' of David's book.
