By D. W. MacKenzie on April 16, 2011
Format: Hardcover
Much of the content of this book will be familiar to those most likely to read this book. The proposition that peer review is biased and unreliable should come as no surprise. The sections on the widening gap between the predictions of alarmists and statistics on actual climactic conditions are worthwhile, but unsurprising. This book does an excellent job of explaining the facts concerning economic costs of environmentalist regulation. One of the strengths of this book is that it clarifies the pervasive nature of environmentalism. Stricter enforcement of enviro-regulations by the Obama Administration will most certainly limit further progress in living standards in industrialized nations, and lack of global economic progress could have disastrous consequences for relatively poor nations.

The idea that environmentalism fits with the unconstitutional trend of empowering the presidency is correct, but one that has little reach beyond those already critical of anthropogenic global warming movement. The fact of the matter is that committed environmentalists have no respect for the Constitution, and most other people have come to accept unconstitutional governance in America. This is an important problem, but I don't think this book will do much directly to solve it. Attitudes concerning law need to change. The aforementioned sections that debunk alarmism may help take the wind out of the sails of this anti-constitutional environmentalist movement, but I don't expect concern over the constitution itself to mount any time soon.

The last chapter is the most important. K-12 environmental indoctrination is dangerous. I had already gained the impression that children are being taught to believe particular things about warming, rather than to think critically about its causes.

In the foreword, Michaels writes: "Edited volumes are supposed to be boring, uneven, and unread. I don't think this one will garner those labels." My take follows:

Chapter 1 - The story of how the Constitution has been reinterpreted versus the founder's initial intent is well told by Pilon & Turgeon. Not only have the "enumerated powers" of Congress been reduced to insignificance, but also the "separation of powers" has been undercut by the rise of administrative agencies controlled by the President. All Congress really has left is the power of the purse.

Chapter 2 - The president's favorability rating (strong disapproval minus strong approval, Rasmussen) dipped into negative territory just after the Waxman-Markey bill was passed by the House of Representatives in late June 2009, where it has stayed ever since, after which the cap-and-trade bill died in the Senate. Michaels theorizes that many members of Congress backed away from this controversial legislation, and would prefer that the EPA regulate carbon emissions on whatever basis it chooses.

Chapter 3 - Ross McKittrick relates his long and ultimately successful effort to publish a paper refuting "an important claim in the IPCC's Fourth Assessment Report." By his reckoning the IPCC's claim was "not just wrong" but "based on fabricated evidence" as well. Most of the reviewer comments were positive, and yet one editor after another turned the paper down and in some cases simply refused to communicate with McKittrick. Pretty sad, when science is supposedly directed to finding the truth.

Chapter 4 - Why is it so often said that global warming is a "national security" issue? Per Ivan Eland, global warming zealots think this claim will give their agenda more "punch," while generals, admirals, et al.

The editor of this book is one of the leading skeptics of "greenhouse gas/global warming." The chapters by various experts in their fields discuss in detail the attempts at censoring the works of the leading skeptics, the hacked emails from the Climate Research Unit in Britain, effects of the phoney GH/GW alarm on the national economy, and the attempts by the national defense community to get on board the GH/GW ship. Strongly recommended as armament for those not convinced of greenhouse gas/climate change scam.

Patrick Michaels is a genius. Hopefully Mr Michaels will write a follow-up and / or an updated version to debunk the deliberate lies of Naomi Klein and Al Gore. We need as much help as possible to fight the environmental-propaganda of the liberals.
