Well written and researched. He does not say global warming isn't happening but he does challenge the voracity of the science. Most of all he questions the quasi-religous ferver that is associated with the subject and how debate is being stifled by denying any platform to those who challenge the 'perceived wisdom'! Furthermore he questions the 'science' as to what might be achieved in stopping or slowing down global warming, the vast amounts of money being spent and the questionable methods being used, and finally the potential futility of what it is hoped to achieve. Certainly makes one think seriously that this has become more political than science and ultimately who or what is driving the agenda and why.

Should be read by all those who want to keep an open mind about global warming. Lawson is vilified as a climate change denier but he actually makes a compelling case for seeing climate change as an economic challenge. He is prepared to stick his head above the parapet and challenge the accepted orthodoxy. It makes no sense to shut down the world economy to prevent climate change. Doing so will condemn those already living in poverty to a very bleak future. He argues that we should support economic growth and use our wealth to mitigate the effects of climate change. Well written and persuasive.

Nigel Lawson's key premise is not that global warming is a cult (it is) but that if it is occurring the world should take practical steps to mitigate or prevent its impact. With the current progression of world development the green energy plank is not a practical solution for many decades so it is far better to plan expenditure for adaptation.

China opens a new coal-fired power station every couple of days and here in Britain our people and businesses are being penalised by those who claim global warming is a man-made phenomenon we can tackle. Read this book and discover the truth!

A very interesting view. It's a bit one sided, but it's very well written.

One of the few people who calmly explains one of the biggest and most expensive mistakes in human history.

If you want a sensible level headed evaluation of the Climate-Change debacle. read this book. It approaches from an economic viewpoint and sets everything out clearly. No wonder "Alarmists" refuse to debate live with Lord Lawson.

Common sense from a non-scientist.
