'Like most of those on both sides of the debate, Rupert Darwall is not a scientist. He is a wonderfully lucid historian of intellectual and political movements, which is just the job to explain what has been inflicted on us over the past thirty years or so in the name of saving the planet ... Scientists, Rupert Darwall complains, have been too ready to embrace the "subjectivity" of the future, and too often have a "cultural aversion to learning from the past". If they read this tremendous book they will see those lessons set out with painful clarity' --Charles Moore, Daily Telegraph
'A superb and compelling book' --Mail on Sunday
'This is a brilliant piece of work that every climate change negotiator should have in his front pocket' --Jon Snow
'A great achievement ... Rupert Darwall has written a compelling and balanced account of a story that needs to be told' --Nigel Lawson
'A total masterpiece' --James Delingpole
'Gripping ... Darwall's book has been widely praised as a welcome addition to our understanding of this extraordinary story, which as he says reflects a historic shift in the global balance of power between the West and those fast-rising nations to the east led by China and India' --Spectator
'Rupert Darwall has told a story of frauds and fools thoroughly and well. His truth may be inconvenient for some. For the rest of us, it is a breath of fresh air' --The American Spectator
