From the Inside Flap
Liars--Al Gore, the United Nations, the New York Times. The global warming lobby, relentless in its push for bigger government, more spending, and more regulation, will use any means necessary to scare you out of your wits--as well as your tax dollars and your liberties--with threats of rising oceans, deadly droughts, and unspeakable future consequences of "climate change." In pursuing their anti-energy, anti-capitalist, and pro-government agenda, the global warming alarmists--and unscrupulous scientists who see this scare as their gravy train to federal grants and foundation money--resort to dirty tricks, smear campaigns, and outright lies, abandoning scientific standards, journalistic integrity, and the old-fashioned notions of free speech and open debate. In Red Hot Lies, bestselling author Christopher Horner--himself the target of Greenpeace dirty tricks and alarmist smears--exposes the dark underbelly of the environmental movement. Power-hungry politicians blacklist scientists who reject global warming alarmism. U.S. senators threaten companies that fund climate change dissenters. Mainstream media outlets openly reject the notion of "balance." The occasional unguarded scientist candidly admits the need to twist the facts to paint an uglier picture in order to keep the faucet of government money flowing. In the name of "saving the planet," anything goes. But why the nasty tactics? Why the cover ups, lies, and intimidation? Because Al Gore and his ilk want to use big government at the local, state, federal, and global level to run your life, and they can brook no opposition. But the actual facts, as Red Hot Lies makes clear, aren't nearly as scary as their fiction.
From the Back Cover
Praise for Red Hot Lies
"If I had to choose one global warming skeptic to go mano-a-mano against the best of the alarmists in a winner-take-all, rumble-in-the-jungle debate to the death to settle the climate controversy once and for all, my pick would be Chris Horner. Red Hot Lies shows why. Horner's astonishing depth and breadth of knowledge is crisply and cleverly articulated and packs amazing punch. It's no wonder the alarmists fear him."
--Steven Milloy, publisher, JunkScience.com
Praise for Christopher C. Horner and his New York Times bestseller, The Politically Incorrect Guide to Global Warming and Environmentalism
"Finally, someone has written a definitive resource to debunk global warming alarmism."
--Senator James Inhofe (R.-Okla.), former chairman of the Environment & Public Works Committee
"Chris Horner has been a staunch champion for common sense in the face of mounting media hysteria about the climate."
--Roger Helmer, member of European Parliament

For those of us who are concerned about the global warming hysteria, this book does provide balance and perspective. For those who are sitting on the fence, this is a must read.
This book proves, once again, that we cannot rely on the media, politicians or other nations for balanced perspective on critical world issues.
from rules and laws that put $$ in their pockets. All the distortion and falsification of data is documented in the creation of the supposed
"concensus of all scientists."
If you are concerned about the truth about climate change and hate being lied to, this is a book to read along with "The Chilling Stars" where it
will all come clear.

Good news is that he is obviuosly plugged in to what is going on among the alarmists and therefore provides insight into how and why we are where we are with the group of people who want us to panic. Also contains a great list of references that will take a year to review if you want to. However, you can probably find a book which is written more clearly.
I have heard the Meteorologists on The Weather Channel argue for Global Warming as if it is a confirmed fact. And I have heard a local university Climatologist state that the problem with Global Warming models, when applied to known historical patterns, is that they do not properly predict the weather patterns that happened in those past years.
Mr Gore, when challenged with this dilemma, refuses to address the issue and states the debate is over and everyone is in agreement with his Global Warming conclusions. Okay, when did the real debate happen and who agreed? (Interesting to note that Mr Gore's latest visit to Congress, Spring 2009, was arranged with pre-conditions that not one question could be asked about his positions.)
As an engineer, I have been trained to ask pointed questions and seek logical conclusions. There are too many holes in the Global Warming theory that cannot be (and have not been) explained. RED HOT LIES does an excellent job reviewing some of these holes, explaining the pressure placed on scientists to conform to the Global Warming position, and reveals untruths in Mr Gore's movie.
If you think the government is polarized with red and blue politics, then read the book to see the polarization happening with the scientists studying the Global Warming theory. If the last couple of cold winters has you wondering about Global Warming, then read the book about temperature recording errors. If the Al Gore movie (becoming a school viewing requirement) has your kids intimidated with the predicted results, read the book to help your kids digest the info. Even if you agree with the Global Warming theory, READ THE BOOK (i.e., At least be open to hear both sides of the argument).... JAS
The book is a must read by everyone. If nothing else check the back of the book for references and check them out.
