1.0 out of 5 stars Not a trustworthy source of information, 17 Jan. 2013
This review is from: The God Species (Paperback)
Lynas has recently destroyed my trust in his research and the value of his thoughts. If he can flip flop so greatly on subjects that he has written about before, he obviously has little respect for the potential impact of his own words. Words must have little meaning to him, that he would write them and then change his opinion so drastically. He must be a very emotionally-driven, irrational man. I bought this and then sent it back. I have chosen another book by a different author writing about some of the same ideas.

What a moronic review. Mark Lynas has analysed the evidence, and changed his mind accordingly, so that his beliefs fit as well as possible with what the evidence tells him. This is the very definition of rational thinking, it's not "flip flopping". Presumably you picked it up hoping to have your anti nuclear, anti GM biases reinforced? Sorry you were disappointed. Next time you review, please analyse the arguments put forward, rather than writing a barrage of ad hominems against the author.
