5.0 out of 5 stars A palpable hit., 16 Feb. 2012
This review is from: Watermelons: How Environmentalists are Killing the Planet, Destroying the Economy and Stealing Your Children's Future (Paperback)
A very well written and insightful book about the dangers of blindly conforming to a spurious consensus in matters concerning science and it's process.

Pointing out the absurdity of employing the fallacy of simple enumeration when it comes to judging the worth of a hypothesis that hasn't yet risen to the status of a theory is a worthwhile public service.

It is worth noting that Ian Keith Shaw's deceit in failing to acknowledge Nurse's complete ignorance concerning one of the fundamentals in this area, ignorance which was compounded by Dr Bindschadler and the failure of the BBC's supposedly professional editing process is typical of those with an axe to grind. I should add that least Dr Bindschadler had the integrity to acquire a DT account so that he could visit the authors blog and make an apology, something Paul Nurse has manifestly failed to do.

Further I would point out that Martin Lack's somewhat whimsical habit of denigrating books he has not actually read is infamous on Amazon and has led to much well deserved derision.

Irrespective of all that I would suggest you read the book for yourself and make up your own mind. After all being sceptical and educating yourself is not something to be ashamed of but rather something to be encouraged.

Martin Lack says:
We may have been fooled into thinking can look after ourselves, but we should not underestimate the ability of nature to punish us for such arrogance. Furthermore, given that we are definitely not looking after nature, it is odds-on that we will be punished for our poor stewardship of what we inherited.

This website is not the place to debate something that was resolved over 30 years ago.

Therefore, please do not take the absence of further responses from me in this forum as an indication that you won the argument: You have made it patently obvious you do not even understand the nature of the problem.
