Tells the shocking stories of more than three-dozen world-renowned scientists whose work refutes global warming hysteria and gives the lie to claims from Al Gore and co. that the science is settled. Author Lawrence Solomon an internationally renowned environmentalist shows these men have faced a vicious campaign of intimidation by those who, like Al Gore, seek to pervert science and silence dissent to advance their own political agenda. Some have been intimidated into silence. Others have seen their funding denied and their labs shut down as a result of political pressure. But the testimony of their work remains too powerful to deny.
Extensively footnoted including URLs to crucial scientific papers (and lively e-mails detailing the inside politics of global warming) and lavishly illustrated with charts and graphs, The Deniers will do more than spark controversy. The Deniers is destined to become the most reliable and provocative sourcebook on the real global warming debate.

About the author (2008)

Lawrence Solomon, a world renowned environmentalist author and activist has been at the forefront of movements to stop nuclear power expansion and to save the world's rainforests. He is a columnist with National Post (Toronto) and has been a columnist for the Globe and Mail (Toronto), a syndicated columnist, and a contributor to the Wall Street Journal. Mr. Solomon's model for electricity reform was adopted in Great Britain, leading to the demise of nuclear and coal power in that country, and has since become the dominant model for electricity-sector restructuring in the world. His 1996 energy-saving model for satellite toll roads has been adopted throughout the European Union. Mr. Solomon's Energy Probe Research Foundation promotes conservation and renewable energy, opposes coal, nuclear power, and large-scale hydro dams, and works with citizen groups around the world to stop environmentally destructive projects and promote sound development.
