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 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.
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.

Sussman did his homework. It's a shame someone has to work so hard to prove what is just common sense to many of us. Of course humans aren't causing global warming. Read morePublished 7 months ago by Susan J.
