5.0 out of 5 stars
An outstanding book, Aug. 10 2009
This book should be compulsory reading for anyone with an opinion on climate change and CO2, in particular any University-level Environmental course. It strips away a lot of the emotions and politics and gets down to facts and science. It's worth buying just to read the chapters that debunk the famous hockey-stick atmospheric CO2 curve and discuss the real temperature profile of the Earth over the last few thousand years. There's an enormous amount of climate education contained in 500 pages and even if you disagree with parts of it, the book gives you a lot to consider.
