The physical phenomena in climate and weather change are among the most complex in nature, and science can say very little about what will happen to our environment in the future. Yet a large international policy framework has been built precisely on the assumption that we know what is happening and how to control it. In Taken by Storm, Christopher Essex and Ross McKitrick prove this internationally accepted assumption false. Essex and McKitrick explain the science of climate change and show that the widespread belief in global warming is really a house of cards. Taken By Storm is a vital first step towards dealing with environmental issues in a way that seeks real solutions and overcomes the tendency to replace scientific fact with indoctrinated fiction.(November 2002)

tough read but well worth it, the pseudo-science of global warming and the political manipulation it feeds is a growing disaster
