This review is from: Climate Change Denial: Heads in the Sand (Paperback)
Very well put book. Sadly there are people who deny what is happening in our world as regard to environmental damage. The Ostrich with its head in the sand sums up skeptic's and deniers alike however, even the joe blogs of society who hope that the bad things that happen will go away.

You obviously don't know much about the controversy or the questionable science behind Climate Change. This used to be called Man-made Global Warming until it stopped warming and then miraculously it became Climate Change - implying that any odd weather or change could be blamed on mankind. Any knowledge of 'textbook science' shows that the climate of the world has always been changing without our influence.

Mr. M. C. Desmond says:
Man-made Global Warming/Climate Change what's in a name. I do not dispute that the world's climate has changed naturally over millennium. However, to say man has not played a part in enhancing change is questionable. Take Carbon Dioxide for instance, Plants & Trees take in Carbon Dioxide where it mixes with water to make food for the plants/trees in return we get oxygen. Throughout the hundreds of years has man not cut down the forests for fuel, to create agricultural land and to use as building materials? Does it not still go on today in the Amazonian forests and other rain-forests over the world? Has populations not grown rapidly over thousands of years. Populations that require fuel, shelter and food? Climate change happens naturally Mr Woodburn however, we humans over the centuries have played a big part in increasing the gases that can influence Climate Change therefore, we have a part to play in redressing the past faults of our ancestors. I do believe in the concept "Sustainable Development" Development that: meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. Who are our children and grandchildren.
