5.0 out of 5 stars Ever wondered whether BBC Marxists and Hollywood Slebs are really the best people to plan the future of the world economy?, 9 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Possibly the most important book since Gutenberg woke up with a lightbulb over his head. Anyone who has ever felt the gut-wrenching anxiety of deciding which colour recycling bag a black fibre apple tray with a clear plastic lid goes in, or wondered whether BBC Marxists and Hollywood slebs are really the best people to plan the future of the world economy, will find life-enhancing catharsis in its pages. For less than the price of a gloomy, toxic, eco light-bulb you can enjoy hours of laughing at the absurdities of our new Green Establishment. They're all in there - Sticky Mikey Mann, Sir Paul "Fetch The Screens" Nurse, The University of Easy Access Climate CRU, Prof Horrorbrain of the Beeb. Never will you have so much fun and satisfaction absorbing fundamental truths as you giggle at James's "Wankerati". Buy it! In fact buy several copies and slip 'em to the most sanctimonious & irritating greenies in your life - you know who they are. Did I mention this is a really good book?

5.0 out of 5 stars The best book yet on the politics of climate science., 14 Oct 2011
Donna Laframboise carefully traces the origins, structure and working practices of the world's leading climate bureaucracy with devastating results. We find that, far from being a disciplined and impartial judge of climate science - it is a partisan organisation which has been hijacked by green activists and political extremists from its very beginnings.

Many of its "leading scientists" turn out to be activist grad students with Greenpeace of WWF affiliations and no previously published scientific work. Its rules, procedures and time limits are regularly flouted to include more alarmist material and a high proportion of the included "science" comes not, as claimed, from peer-reviewed scientific papers - but from environmental activist's PR material.

A clearly written and revealing book - which might turn out to be a turning point in climate politics - read it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Clear, elegantly written, expose of, possibly, the greatest scientific fraud ever, 4 Feb 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Montford's detailed forensic analysis clearly shows how a single scientist, with a huge ego and a small clique of uncritical supporters, was able to distort the whole, relatively new, field of "climatology".

In clear, unsensational but convincing language, he takes us line by line through the selective use of data, the deliberate abuse of statistical methods and the ruthless manipulation of the scientific peer review process which led to the most visible "poster child" of the global warming movement.

One of the most readable and disturbing books I have read about science.

1.0 out of 5 stars Big disappointment, 26 Dec 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Bought this for my wife for an Xmas present.

Nice appearance but the software appears to be totally unstable. Sometimes it powers up - sometimes not .....sometimes is reads all the photo files - sometimes it stalls half way through a slide show and has to be powered down......sometimes it says it can't find any photo files - even when it has just payed them. None of the remote buttons produces a consistent, predictable response

This is supposed to be a fully developed consumer item - not a throw-away geek toy, so it's going back tomorrow.

I can only imagine the other reviewers here have an interest in promoting this junk.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very poor, 22 Jan 2008
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Tried this today in my Lexus RX400 with Mark Levinson audio system - barely worked at all.

The manual is very uninformative and the scanning sytem seemed to be erratic, suggesting a different frequency each time and then refusing to store it most of the time.

With a Samsung YP player at 75% volume, when I finally got a signal it was barely audible.

The wired Sony cassette adaptor I've been using isn't exactly hifi but is miles better than this.

Rubbish I'm afraid - it's going back.

5.0 out of 5 stars The real truth about the BBC - for the first time, 21 Feb 2007
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Can We Trust the BBC? (Hardcover)
Robin Aitken was a senior journalist at the BBC who realised that the corporation expects all its staff to sing from the same left of centre, pro EU and anti USA hymnsheet.

Whe he complained he was variously ignored, fobbed off, sidelined and even threatened by superiors right up to board level.

I think this is the first time any BBC insider has broken ranks and revealed the bias, distortion and selective reporting that goes into BBC

current affairs broadcasting.

Definitely a "must read" for anybody who wonders why they have to pay a compulsory licence fee for one sided news coverage.
