With only a couple of semi-passionate assertions, Mr. Delingpole is extremely respectful of the reader - "warmists" and skeptics alike.
The reader will be able to decide if Michael Crichton was right when, in 2003 he wrote, "There is no such thing as consensus science. If it's consensus, it isn't science. If it's science, it isn't consensus. Period."
Do you know what Agenda 21 is? Are you aware of the significance of what Paul Ehrlich predicted in his 1968 bestseller, The Population Bomb? Are you familiar with what's happened in Denmark as a consequence of Climatism? Why did Climategate not enlighten people?
Such questions and a multitude of similarly thought-provoking issues are explored in this stimulating and eye-opening book.
Watermelons is a clarion call to sanity.
I like that the author recounts actual events as they happened, points fingers, and names the actual players involved - this has served as an invaluable resource for me in continuing my own research on the internet and in reading other authors' works. I encourage any and all to read this book if you question the media's blind acceptance of 'climate change', the scare tactics of leftist BIG-eco, and how the promise of power and money have corrupted the science behind it.
Needless to say, man's influence on the natural flux of our climate has been GROSSLY overstated in our media and serves as a perfect example of how leftist ideology controls much of the media/academia we've been told(programmed) to believe is neutral and unbiased.
Again, I encourage you to read this book as it will serve as a launch-pad for further study of the issue, after which your only conclusion can be a that we, the world, have been duped and continue to be on so many issues - climate change, academia, media bias, scientific study, government, power, monetary policy, liberty, freedom,...etc.
I won't be surprised that in 20 years we'll look back at the issue of "Climate Change" and "Global Warming" as the beginning-of-the-end for leftist control of our media and academia as there is no dearth of evidence of the control exerted by leftist special interests, the power they seek, and the lengths they are willing to go; a total corruption of scientific process to promote their agenda.
AGW = "Anthropogenic Global Warming." Don't be intimidated. It just means "Man-Made Global Warming," which could be abbreviated as MMGW. And it's a crock, folks. It's an absolute crock. It has been defended and promoted by a group of seedy men, including a large crowd at the UN --- and, if you haven't noticed that the UN has been trying to get a lot bigger than its britches, transforming itself from a forum for discussion into a Global Legislator (a la EU), then I don't think you're very observant. AGW was a big push by the UN bureaucrats (and their wannabes) to put the UN on top of the world, dictating to the lowly peasants what they should and should not do --- all of this without being elected, just like the (ho ho) "President of Europe."
Where do we go to vote these creeps out of office? Nowhere! Welcome to 21st century democracy, "a la Europe."
As for AGW (or MMGW), that continues to be one of the most embarrassing theories ever put forward by scientists. There is no evidence at all to support it, although bloviating politicians such as Al Gore think it's the gospel truth (and are expecting to make billions once they have suckered you and me into believing them). The main idea is "carbon credits," by which companies which actually make stuff have to buy "carbon credits" from people who don't do anything but gaze at the South American jungles.Read more ›
And clearly the scientific evidence for dangerous, CO2-caused, AGW has declined (not even a correlation for one thing). This fact would cause most honest observers to revise their conclusions. But clearly a core of the official (paid) "climate scientists" - i.e., the co-called consensus - and their less esteemed myrmidons remain recalcitrant, in specter if no longer in numbers, out of all proportion. Why?
In opposition to the AGW agenda we have those persons who may be called "climate rationalists" ("deniers" by their detractors), who have come to wonder about the thinking processes (or lack thereof) of the alarmists. Why are some of the alarmists NOT modifying their views - ever, for any reason? Why is there not at least some measure of joy in the news that the disaster they were fervently anticipating is apparently not going to happen? From whence comes their apparent disappointment?
Sure, there will always be hard-core hangers-on to lost causes such as "911 truth" and "cold fusion". And clearly many professionals have a vested interest in, or at least a subsurface attraction to, AGW for reasons of employment or financial opportunity - regardless of realities and practicalities. And there are some people with no expertise who are merely incorrigible, and have no capability for independent thoughts anyway.Read more ›
