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.Read more ›

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.Read more ›
