This original audiobook considers one of the most extraordinary scientific and political stories of our time: how in the 1980s a handful of scientists came to believe that mankind faced catastrophe from runaway global warming, and how today this has persuaded politicians to land us with what promises to be the biggest bill in history.
Christopher Booker interweaves the science of global warming with that of its growing political consequences, showing how just when the politicians are threatening to change our Western way of life beyond recognition, the scientific evidence behind the global warming theory is being challenged like never before.
The audiobook exposes the myth that the global warming theory is supported by a 'consensus of the world's top climate scientists'. It shows how the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is run by a small group of 'global warming' zealots, who have repeatedly rigged evidence to support their theory. But the politicians, pushed by the media, have so fallen for its propaganda that, short of dramatic change, our Western world now faces an unprecedented disaster.

Well worth a listen
I have read many books saying climate change IS happening and some that say it is not. I am still undecided. But feel i am in a better position for listening to this book. The criticism of the make up of the IPCC in particular is worrying. If you ONLY read one side of an arguement, how can you say you have made a CONSIDERED decision?
Refreshing look at the skeptic view
The book examines the skeptic view which has been outlawed by the climate warming orthodoxy. It explains how the many counter arguments put forward by academic scientists are ignored by politicians despite the logic of many of the arguments and shunned by broadcasters and news owners/journalists who seem to almost enjoy the lack of impartiality in reporting climate change, like as if it is a football team.
The book disputes that there is a man made climate change = catastrophe consensus.
The book adds some weight to the argument that our views about supposed AGW and the surrounding governmental policies need to be reconsidered.
