We’ve started to see some great online reviews of Jim’s book Climate Cover Up: the crusade to deny global warming so I thought I share a few of them with you.
If you have a blog and would like to do a review, drop me a line at: firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll send you a copy.
If you don’t have a blog, but want to help spread the word, please consider writing a review on Amazon and/or Barnes and Noble, or sending around the summary page we have to your friends of email or Facebook
Here’s some of the reviews so far:
“Right now, I am happy to unhesitatingly recommend Climate Cover-Up: The Crusade to Deny Global Warming by James Hoggan editor of with Richard Littlemore, key figures behind the terrific Desmog.blog.”
Climate Cover-Up (Liz Veazey @ it’sgettinghotinhere.org)
“Although, I had some understanding of of this “climate cover-up” I liked to think of it as mostly over, too. It was sobering and frustrating to learn more details about this ongoing campaign and its success in the minds of a majority of the public.”
“Climate Cover-Up summarizes four years of investigative journalism into the inception of the campaign, how it was funded through Washington think tanks and how it used discredited “scientists” and partisan politics to marginalize the climate change issue.”
“Chapter Four, from which this first extract is taken, largely concerns the formation and activities of The Advancement of Sound Science Coalition (TASSC), a monstrous “Astroturf” which was created on the suggestion of the public relations company APCO (the same company that fought to promote tobacco in the face of virtually all medical advice). It also discusses at length the Astroturfing activities of The American Petroleum Institute (API). This section introduces a veteran of the anti-climate change lobby, Frederick Seitz, but most importantly “Mr Junk Science”, Steven Milloy. Enjoy.”
“So, if you wonder how and why so many people, especially in North America, are confused about the current state of climate science, this is an excellent introduction to the key players and tactics.”
Thanks again for those who’ve taken the time to highlight the book on their blogs!
