I've assigned "Do the Right Thing" as a textbook in my university public relations course. It's an easy -- yet dramatic -- read. My students enjoy the book and find the stories compelling. I've also read Hoggan and Littlemore's book "Climate Cover-Up: The Crusade to Deny Global Warming," which is a more-detailed approach to the same subject.
Reading this book will help you better understand how it is that the vast majority of climate scientists believe there is a greater than 90 percent chance that the earth is warming and that human behavior is responsible -- while most Americans do not. Why the disconnect? This book will help you connect the dots.
