The Real Global Warming Disaster
- Is the Obsession with 'Climate Change' Turning Out to Be the Most Costly Scientific Blunder 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.

Masterful run through of the sceptical view
If global warming turns out to have been more of a political pushed agenda than a scientific consensus then this account will be the ultimate: you were warned moment. It is difficult not to be all out convinced that global warming as a man made phenomenon is a purely political agenda. This is the books weakest side as well. The opposite view is almost always narrated as not so benevolent as the sceptics.

Well worth a listen
Any additional comments?
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?

Finally, an explanation.
I've read a lot about climate change--on both sides.
I feel like understand the science pretty well, but I have always been mystified as to how so many smart people could disagree with each other on such simple issues.
Booker's history details the creation of the IPCC, and the political baby steps which got us here. In each case, a small group acted in their own interest, and each step seemed almost reasonable. But the net effect has been this wide-scale tragedy, that will scar and shame the scientific community for generations.
As someone who really loves science, I hate to see it abused. This book offered little peace, but gave me a lot of understanding.

Real scientific evidence
If you could sum up The Real Global Warming Disaster in three words, what would they be?
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Real Global Warming Disaster?
President Obama is put as solely responsible for saving the world.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
The idiosyncrasy and sadness that exists with the political view of something that has been blown off tract by a few egoist and the massive extent of those engaged.
