It's witty, I'll give it that.

He's witty, in the same way that people of all areas of the political spectrum can be witty.
However anyone saying that this "proves" anything or is factual in any way may well ask, where are the references? If he's trying to say such things as "increasingly discredited by real-world evidence" as he does under AGW who is it discrediting that when people such as NASA support that this is happening (I would link to the papers on this but people reading a fluff piece like this book no doubt wouldn't like to read real science and I'm sure you can Google it if you're really interested).
I do not deny that the Ecological movement has been hi-jacked for political gain by one side or the other of the political world but there's evidence that climate change is happening and devastating destruction of our ecology is certainly happening. Just watch any news programme. Why bury your head in the sand about issues such as the destruction of species just because you hate the Green Party? I hate the Green Party too, it doesn't mean I don't accept the evidence backed up by global studies that the human race is having a devastating effect on the Earth.
So yes, please don't buy this for friends who have any scientific knowledge whatsoever, the man needs to write a properly referenced polemic if he wants to be thought of anything more than a dilettante playing to the right wing libertarians that he's so happily a member of. If however you have right-wing friends who want to feel less guilty about their ignorance of how we're slowly making this world at least a very dull place to live or at worst a place where no-one lives then go ahead and buy it.
