Trading on His Fraudulent Book Title
Self-described “environmentalist” Lawrence Solomon has become the toast of the oil-industry-backed climate change denier community ever since the spring 2008 release of his book, The Deniers: The World-Renowned Scientists Who Stood Up Against Global Warming Hysteria, Political Persecution, and Fraud (and those who are too fearful to do so).
The problem, then and still, is that nobody in Solomon’s overheated text actually denies that humans are causing climate change. He admits as much on Page 45 of his book, saying:
“As these rather dramatic reversals for the doomsday view mounted, however, I also noticed something striking about my growing cast of deniers.
“None of them were deniers.”
National Post stringer Lawrence Solomon's book-length version of his newspaper series on purported climate change deniers is just as unconvincing - and misleading - as the original Post articles. But at least he admits his motivation for writing it: he's an anti-nuclear, anti-mega-hydro guy watching the environmental tide turn against him.
But Amazon also followed up with a list of books they think might also interest me: a handsome reading list for anyone who is determined to remain delusional about global warming.
