Michaels, with Robert Balling, does what he does best: confronts some of the distortions and extreme claims about climate science which show up in the media or come out of the mouths of politicians. He does this not only with analysis but also with studies published in refereed journals. As usual, he shows once again that science is never "settled" and that climate science, as is the case with any other science, is far more complex than the headlines and pronouncements you get in public.

I enjoyed this book. The authors reviewed various statements and studies concerning global warming and concluded that while the planet may currently be warming but not as fast as most would have us believe and the results will not be as severe.

Finally. I've been waiting a long time for this book.
