Nothing to Fear is a must-read book for anyone who wants to understand the facts about climate change and the war on fossil fuels and carbon dioxide (CO2). This book is a well-researched, easy-to-read explanation demonstrating that climate change hysteria has been used to create a Trojan Horse hiding an agenda that will cause great global economic damage. Using well-documented facts, Dears shows why CO2 is not the cause of global warming and that alternatives to fossil fuels are illusions when confronted by technological and economic reality.--William O Keefe, former CEO of the GCMI and founder of Solutions Consulting
Donn Dears has written another important and highly readable commentary on issues at the center of the climate change debate. He writes with incision and often wit, challenging readers to come to grips with facts (such as the enormous benefits fossil fuels have brought to humanity and the environment, and the sheer impossibility of renewable fuels taking their place) that are often shoved under the rug and ignored by other commentators. This is a book college students, your nieces and nephews, and maybe your parents will actually read and come away convinced that global warming is nothing to fear. I recommend it highly.--Joseph Bast, president, The Heartand Institute
If you have ever wondered about the reality of dangerous man-made global warming, or the costs of energy from wind farms and solar power, or the difficulties of operating a power system with intermittent generation, or the economics and environmental effects of biofuels, or whether or not carbon capture and sequestration is practical, this is the book for you.--Bryan Leyland, New Zealand-based engineer and worldwide expert in power generation
About the Author
Donn Dears began his career at General Electric testing large steam turbines and generators used by utilities to generate electricity; followed next, by manufacturing and marketing assignments at the Transformer Division. He led an organization of a few thousand people servicing these and other GE products in the United States. He then established facilities around the world to service power generation, transmission equipment and other electric apparatus. Later, he led an engineering department of several hundred people that provided engineering support to nearly a hundred service installations around the world.
At nearly every step, Donn was involved with the work done at customer locations: at steel mills, electric utilities, refineries, oil drilling and production facilities and open pit and underground mining operations. At every opportunity, he learned of the needs of these industries.
Donn has had a close-up view of the eastern province of Saudi Arabia with its oil producing and shipping facilities. He has investigated many of the other oil producing countries in the Mideast and Northern Europe, as well as examining iron-ore mining locations and major shipping centers in Europe and Asia. All told, Donn has visited over 50 countries and has knowledge of their need for the technologies that can improve their well being and their use of equipment manufactured in the United States.
Following his retirement as a senior GE Company executive, he continued to study and write about energy issues.
Donn is a graduate of the United States Merchant Marine Academy and served on active duty in the U.S. Navy.
