He's been called a genius and a troublemaker. Michael Crichton is the creator of the TV drama "ER," the book and movie "Jurassic Park," as well as the "Andromeda Strain," "Rising Sun," "Coma," and "Congo." His scary movies alone have earned more than four billion dollars. Crichton is a man of many talents. He has a medical degree, and he created the top-rated "ER" based on what he saw in medical school. When this top-selling thriller writer came out with the book "State of Fear" in 2004, he made a lot of people mad because he was contradicting something most people believed and feared. Unlike some of his past successes, "State of Fear" made people mad because the fear in "State of Fear" is fear of global warming. Crichton spent three years researching global warming and ultimately concluded that it is just another foolish media-hyped scare. And many climate scientists agreed with him, saying the effect of man and greenhouse gases is minor. Anchor: John Stossel Airdate: 12/10/2004
