A succinct, trenchant and highly effective attack on the green nonsense with which this country and other advanced economies are afflicted. Delingpole has learned brevity, so now, for example, Michael E Mann is dismissed with a metaphorical curl of the lip and a well-earned sneer. Whereas his Watermelons rather sprawled, this is focused on the worst of the damage the environmentalists are doing, with the connivance of politicians. Those politicians ought to read this, but I don't suppose they will. Strongly recommended. Those of us who don't accept the greenie world-view (back to the Middle Ages, anyone?) are in constant need of succour, and we need books like this as well as the more scholarly efforts of people like Bob Carter.

James Delingpole is an excellent writer who in this book goes through the alphabet of reasons why we should all be sceptical of the Catastrophic Anthropogenic Climate Change propaganda.
From the Acid Rain scaremongers, to the Zoological Society who place a mirror for children at the zoo under the slogan "look at the most dangerous animal on Earth", Delingpole names the people and institutions that aid the 'scam' that has gathered momentum since the 1970's. Momentum gained through the lure of political opportunism and cash rewards to participants in the scam.
Under 'B', Delingpole accuses the BBC of allowing itself to be swayed by false evidence and phoney science to adopt a policy of not allowing climate change sceptical scientists equal time on the issue - BBC has banned opposition to CAGW in favour of promoting hopelessly inadequate 'renewables'. Everybody should read this book, it will enlighten but it won't bore.

Plenty material to annoy people I dislike. They all deserve to be made to think for themselves instead of reading the Guardian

Can't say it is serious read, something more to skim through.

However it does make clear that much of this environmentalism is having a disastrous and counter productive effect on the environment.

...this book is very entertaining, written with Delingpole's usual wit. Written in alphabetical sections, making it easy to dip into for a laugh. Few aspects of today's eco-mania emerge unscathed.

If you thought the environmental movement were the saviours of mankind, think again. This book should be made compulsory reading in schools to ensure the next generation, at least, gains some measure of balance.

The perfect gift for the eco-"activist" in your life, although not really worth buying for the average tree-hugger, as they usually have trouble understanding facts and numbers.

A good read, easy to dip in and out of raises several thought provoking issues regarding the cult of global warming and how it is costing the general populous a lot of money.
Most of the the claims are backed with evidence though evidence of suppression of some technologies is not given as it is hard to prove.

James Delingpole has written another book which is very factual and witty. His no-nonsence approach to writing makes it very easy to read. This book is instructive, and manages to convey to the reader the total disdain that those who believe in man made global warming have for facts. If you are interested in the subject of climate change, and are unsure about all the scare stories that we are constantly fed via the media on this subject, this book is worth purchasing. It will allay your fears and will bring a balance back to this subject, which for so many has disappeared.

Dellingpole has encapsulated in easy to read, witty and sometimes even funny, all you need to know as a sceptic in an A to Z dictionary of man made climate change. Great read.

Delingpole (as always) makes the point. As acerbic as ever, he calls it the way he sees it. I happen to agree.
