The saying goes, “put your money where your mouth is”. I did that here. It even got my name on the back cover along with a whole lot of others. This book just reached the Number 1 seller on the Climate list and Number 1 on the Environment list:
A bit of a thrill. Mark Steyn reports the good news:
I’ve had a fun time out on the Earth Day airwaves talking about Climate Change: The Facts. That’s the new book featuring me and some of the world’s most eminent scientists on the state of the climate debate as we prepare to enter the third decade of the global-warming pause. And I’m thrilled to find that the book is currently Number One on the Climatology Hit Parade, ahead of Naomi Klein, Naomi Oreskes and any number of Naomis, and also Number One on the Environmental Policy Hot 100.

I heartily concur. Comrade Gillard is the first that I heard using the phrase ‘carbon pollution’. That confirmed for me that I was a skeptic. Carbon dioxide is not, and never can be, pollution.
An excellent book, very readable, and understandable for the laymen amongst us.
