I have followed this issue for several years. It took me a couple of years before I came to the point of view that Sussman lays out here. Global warming is a deeply insidious expression of Marxism with the express agenda of de-development and global wealth redistribution. This is as anti-capitalist and un-American as it gets. Sussman lays out the major issues well, which basically amount to cherry picking of data and manipulating mathematical models to produce the desired results.

What was so hard in my journey here as an engineer was to see that such a large segment of the academic and scientific community has been corrupted into religiously advancing this theory. The incentive system of having government funding as the primary source where you get funding to advance the theory, but sit out in the cold if you don't buy in is in itself rather disturbing. Sussman didn't delve into this aspect, but it is partially covered in the book "SuperFreakonomics". I have yet to see any author take on the challenge of how to reform science funding. For the sake of the continued contribution of science to human prosperity, this challenge must be taken up.

My only real criticism of Sussman is that he is preaching to the choir. He doesn't do enough to bring people along who are where I was a couple of years ago -- skeptical, but not quite able to believe the extent of the corruption. In my own journey the writings of Freeman Dyson at Princeton, Richard Lindzen at MIT and the well known systems engineer Burt Rutan helped me a great deal.

Sussman provides many very good, but also very quick 'snapshots' of the entire movie it would take to fully understand the scientific, economic, political, moral, etc. problems with the bases for harmful AGW. He highlights the fact he's won several awards for being a good TV personality, but doesn't make the fact he has a meteorology degree well known (I read this on a third party website). A lot of readers may not appreciate the fact that he goes into into a fair amount of history, political philosophy, and even a touch of theology in the first chapter. But, I do admit I was glad I read that portion thoroughly, since it does provide the reader with a more solid background/foundation on which to understand why he believes/says what he does.

Sussman is not afraid of letting you know what he thinks about certain people and ideas. Most of the time, this makes for good reading. On occasion, though, he could've toned things down a little (like calling Karl Marx a bast****). The text is well referenced, but there are the occasional exaggerations (300 mph jet streams? - rare, at best) and instances when more/better documentation would've been great - especially when he references his own interviews and refers to the climategate emails. Sussman is clearly writing about a topic he holds to be important, and it is this fervor which makes this book good. As much of the book is about his personal experiences (challenges, perhaps), he's encountered in both his professional and personal life since he's officially become a 'denier.' Very little of the science presented in this book was 'new' for me; that will be true for you as well, if you keep up to date on the topic. If you're looking for a peek into the makings of climategate and care about scientific integrity & ethics, however, this will be an excellent read. Enjoy.

If you read this book without looking up all the footnotes, you will have missed a great deal of perspective. I suggest Google Scholar open while read this book. I found myself reading for days on a single chapter as the footnotes sent me to other researchers to determine the factual nature of Sussman's writing. I was pleasantly surprised at just how many scientists actually did not see CO2 as a poison or even the cause of climate change. The best thing to do while reading the footnote articles in Google scholar is to also click on the link below the article where it shows number of times cited. This will lead you to all the different opinions on the article Sussman interpreted for his book. If you do it this way, I guarantee you will have your eyes opened to what is clearly two different conversations on climate change: political one and a scientific one. Basic science teaches correlation does not equal causation, but the media and political figures tend to violate that on many research findings. Climategate is one man's research and opinion (based largely in science and partly in a politics) that will open thousands of doors if you follow the chain of evidence in his citations. This was the best book I have read on the topic, even though most of what I learned was from articles the book pointed me to rather than was actually in the book. After reading this, I now have a renewed faith in our scientific community, and a continued disgust for our political leaders around the world.

Finally, a highly-trained professional meteorologist discloses the truth about the fraud that is man-made global warming.

Mr. Sussman names names and uncovers the vile deceptiveness that has both "educated" our children and provided a huge moneymaker for Gore, Obama and others who will profit from this hoax.

A must read. I'm buying several copies for presents.
