History and Overview of the Entire Global Warming Scam,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Climategate: A Veteran Meteorologist Exposes the Global Warming Scam (Hardcover)
I bought this book, expecting to find a detailed discussion of "Climategate", which is the name given by the press to the e-mails from the Climate Research Unit at the University of East Anglia, which were leaked by a whistleblower or hacked into by an outsider. To my surprise, while this book contained a few references to those e-mails, it really is about a much larger topic, the entire global warming scam. As such, the title "Climategate" is a little misleading. Sussman does have a point. The term, "Climategate" is much more apropo to describe the entire scam, rather than just the e-mails, for the e-mails are just a small, though damning part, of the picture of the greatest scam ever perpetrated by scientists, politicians, educators, and the media in history.
Sussman's thrust is two-fold: first that there is no proof for anthropogenic global warming, and he thoroughly refutes all the arguments and the manipulated temperature data and second, he theorizes that the scam was perpetrated by Marxists who have penetrated our government, our schools, and our media. He lays out a very believable case that the people doing this are out to grab more power over our lives, and make a good deal of money doing it. Even if he had not made this argument, and it is a good one, the fact that politicians, scientists, educators and the press have used false science, and false statements, to drive us to the brink of actually enacting legislation which would cripple the world economy, is more than enough reason to have the world take another careful look at this issue.
The book is written for the layman, who, with even a modest understanding of science, will gain a lot of insight as to what and who is behind this global warming scam. Sussman, a former weatherman, who spent many years studying the weather, writes in a way that appeals to your common sense. I highly recommend this book.
