Conspiracy Of Ignorance by Martin L Gross
Conspiracy Of Ignorance by Martin L Gross
The author of this book is absolutely right on in every respect concerning the state of public school education and the preparation of our teachers and adminstrators. I suspected this for years when i was in college observing practices in the school of education though never a part of it thank God! Then the impressions i got from my children's teachers during parent teacher conferences years later. I thought these people seemed ignorant! But I put it out of my mind as most people do.

Earth's Future Climate by Henry Willis
Earth's Future Climate by Henry Willis
3.0 out of 5 stars where is the beef?, June 28 2003
I found this book luke warm and rather disappointing. How does someone with degrees in anthropology and journalism write a book on climatology? It appears to be a paraphrasing of information that can be found in high school science books. I agree with the premises of book, but come on, Mr. Willis is obviously merely a laymen in this field like most of the rest of us. I will commend him on his journalistic skills though.
