'[Booker] digs, he makes the calls, he reads the small print, he takes up the cause of the little man and campaigns, he speaks truth to power without fear or favour ... I'd rate [Booker] among the greatest [journalists] of the age ... [The Real Global Warming Disaster] is another of those classics which any vaguely intelligent person who wants to know what's really going on needs to read.' --James Delingpole, The Spectator
About the Author
As a noted commentator on the political, social and psychological history of our time, Christopher Booker has in recent years, through his weekly Sunday Telegraph column, become the most conspicuous global warming sceptic in the British press. He has based his view on exhaustive research into the scientific evidence for and against the theory of man-made climate change . His professional interest in this issue grew out of research for his previous book Scared The Death, co-written with Dr Richard North, a study of the scare phenomenon which has been such a prominent feature of Western life in recent decades. Booker s other recent books have included The Seven Basic Plots, a best-selling analysis of why we tell stories which has established itself as a standard text (also published by Continuum). He has been an author and journalist for nearly 50 years, and was the founding editor of the satirical magazine Private Eye.
