Climate Coup: Global Warming's Invasion of Our Government and Our Lives
Patrick J. Michaels
Cato Institute, 2011 - Political Science - 270 pages
Despite convincing evidence that observed climate changes do not portend a calamitous future, global warming alarmism is invading nearly every aspect of our society. Children are flooded with apocalyptic visions and ideas in our schools. Poor countries shake down rich ones in the name of climate justice. Lawmakers try to impose tariffs and sanctions on nations that don't agree with their environmental preconceptions. Even the military uses climate change as an excuse to enlarge its budget. Edited by leading climatologist Patrick Michaels, widely acknowledged by climate alarmists as today's most effective advocate of the non-apocalyptic view of climate change. Michaels has gathered a team of first-rate experts on health, education, religion, defense, development, law, trade, and academic publication to produce this comprehensive documentation of the pervasive influence of global warming alarmism on almost every aspect of society.

A nice change from the average everyday anti-anthropogenic global warming book. It may not be for everyone, but I liked it. The author really knows what he's talking about and isn't afraid to challenge all those government-payroll 'scientists'. Who's right and who's wrong? I'm not sure. But its a good idea to ask questions and investigate today's 'everybody knows its true' attitude toward global warming. Everyone needs to think for themselves, and this is a book by a man who does just that.
