A non-scientist who knows a lot more about climate change than Warmists seem to. I say 'seem to' because they know and sometimes admit it's not about the science. Delingpole is, however, extremely funny and wide awake to the ploys of the Watermelons (Green-on-the-outside-but-RED-on-the-inside types).

He shows in modern, clear, hilarious prose the real issues around climate change (note they shifted away from using 'global warming' as much after it stopped warming and started using 'climate change

While I did not like the writing style of Mr. James Delingpole, I did rather enjoy being presented with new perspectives of old 'facts'. As a high school student learning about climate change now, and of course, learning about how it IS happening, this book was a bit of a refresher as it looked at how scientists the world over, have been distorting evidence to predict climate change, and subsequently cause, as the author puts it, mass hysteria.
There are still multiple questions left unanswered,
Benjamin Gladwin
I really think that the difficult part of the environmental debate at the moment is admitting that there is a real problem with both the data, and the politics. Once I did that. Read the data, listened to the argument from both sides, I realised that this is another area of extreme uncertainty.

If you don't read both sides of the story, and you stay in the four channel world of australian media, then you wind up saying just what you are told to.
To make decisions you need to read both sides of an argument. A thoroughly good read
