5.0 out of 5 stars A fascinating and honest account by an insider., 14 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found the description of the science behind climate change by a brilliant scientist compelling and well explained. And there is the fascinating and depressing account of how an honest (but initially politically naive) scientist trying to do science in the traditional way (peer reviewed papers in reputable journals with a time scale of years) gets ambushed in the instant media by unscrupulous vested interests employing rhetoric rather than rational argument. It is unfortunate that the scientific establishment did not recognise that in modern times its role explaining itself to the public is as vital as carrying out research in a rigorous manner and this has led to the current messy confusion.

interesting review but how did you become convinced that he honest in his accounts and that only he uses peer-review to back up his position ? From the research I have done in this pseudo science, its clear that the vast majority of key material that is challenging his position are also from respected sources and subject to peer review. I am not sure why you feel he is more honest that any other scientist ? On a daily basis now papers are being published that show the global climate models are in tatters and that there is a huge piece(s) of the jigsaw missing. These scientists are not "dishonest" for publishing material that challenged his doomsday standpoint, or, do you think they all are ?
