Science made simple,
This review is from: Science Tales (Hardcover)
Another fantastic book from Darryl Cunningham, covering topics as diverse as the Moon Landings and Evolution.
I'm a global warming skeptic (not regarding the science, but concerning the business motives of the people who stand to benefit from it) and it was great to see his take on such a complex subject, told brilliantly simply. Cunningham also manages to take age-old concepts such as the theory of evolution, and distill it down to basic principles that even the dimmest person would understand.
The most important aspect of these books is the research involved in each subject - and the wonderfully sublime illustrations he employs to convey broad, commonly-misunderstood ideas - and to present them in an enjoyable, entertaining format.
My 10-year-old son read the book after me, and loved every single page. It may even have convinced him that Nasa actually put men on the Moon.

It is an interesting question, vested interests and climate change. One cannot deny that there will be some individuals who have a vested interest in the climate change industry. However, aren't the vested interests behind climate change denial, oil companies, automotive manufacturers much larger.
As I say, any idea attacked by the Daily Mail and Jeremy Clarkson can't be all bad.
