It's an imperative read for a successful future."--Leonardo DiCaprio "... the most detailed and probing analysis to date of the interrelations between business organizations and conservative think tanks in campaigns to question global warming...The sleuthing is sophisticated and impressive... Recommended."—CHOICE Reviews, ALA

A useful read for anyone interested in the role of public relations firms in redefining the debate on climate change. In particular, the way vested interests use PR agencies to create confusion and doubt about the science of climate change in order to frustrate action. Having read the book I am surprised by how many of the 'cast' I have since spotted in subsequent 'news' stories. An important read.

If you believe smoking is safe, this book is not for you. Look away now.

The authors do start from a position that Global warming is undebatable. Not unreasonable, given the amount of peer reviewed research and volume of raw data available. They also accept the consensus that climate change is happening as a consequence, again not unreasonable. They work with the current scientific consensus of over 95% probability that man is a major influence in these events. So this book is not going to give you any of that background or insight. It works with the view that true scientific principles are the best guide we have for what is happening around us. If you don't understand climate science, this book won't help you.

This book is about the human condition that needs to ignore bad news and our tendency to latch onto any contrary statements and assertions that return our sense of security and comfort. This book is about public relations and political manipulation machinery that is directed at protecting vested interest by causing inaction and uncertainty. If you want insight into how the PR machine works and is used and abused, then read on.

When taken into the context of climate science it dissects how the issue has been obfuscated and dissembled by various groups of pseudo-scientists using rhetoric and assertion. It is well researched, not in climate science but in the workings of P.R. sources and data is presented to support positions, you can follow many threads on google yourself and get source documents.

It observes that the current commentary trends are shifting to acceptance of the warming facts and that the game is now about causing confusion and inaction through challenging priotities and predicted consequences.

It is very hard to be objective about this book for a number of reasons. At the outset I would admit to being rather agnostic about climate change. I am not affiliated to any particular organisation by way of being renumerated. My educational qualifications are primarily in economics and social science whereas my interests have foundations in the sciences. I believe that any person who believes in being an informed citizen needs to be sceptical of claims to truth and particularly towards any claims by government or the media or anyone else including corporations.

If this gambit appears defensive then let it be acknowledged so. Climate Cover-Up is a political book which attempts to bulldoze a view that no-one in their right mind should oppose the policies to tackle climate change. It makes reference to the common cause that scientists have flocked to about the truth of the issue and denigrates those in opposition as being lackeys of the corporate world, while failing to acknowledge that there are funds available too to sustain those who argue the proponents case.

The author quoes sources on the internet and applauds true science in pursuit of his goal to beat down the opposition while at the same time does not provide the detailed source material he accuses his opponents of not using. He also does not acknowledge that most educated observers do not have access to scientific journals or to the techniques to fully understand them

I do not argue that this issue may be a political battle to sequester funds on one side or the other, or that vested interests wish to see one side, rather than the other succeed.

Format: Paperback
Poorly researched and argued, this book makes its partisan viewpoint painfully obvious from the start. Sometimes polemics are appropriate, but if you're trying to argue that you are on the side of reason and truth, then maybe not.

One star, for being legible.
