Concentration of CO2 in the Atmosphere

A Review of ‘Climate Cover-up’

Climate Cover-up: the crusade to deny global warming

James Hoggan with Richard Littlemore.  Greystone Books. 2009. 250pp.

This very timely book is essential reading for those bewildered by the recent backlash against climate science.  It takes things back to basics, and rather than being an exploration of the climate science itself, it seeks to equip the reader with the tools to be able to distinguish between the sources of climate-related information.

If you want to board an aeroplane, but were told by a large group of aeronautical engineers that the plane was 90% certain to crash upon take-off, would you listen to them, or to a small group, comprising a PR consultant, a botanist and a plumber, who presented as evidence an article
from Readers Digest magazine?

The debate as to whether climate change is happening or not, and the need felt by media organisations to always present ‘both sides’, was over several years ago, yet since just before Copenhagen, contrarianism is back, and is back bigtime.  So who are these people?  Are
they right?  And how can we tell the difference?

  • I think whether I believe in global warming or not doesn’t matter. What I do believe is this. If we continue doing what we’re doing to the environment, we will pay for it. Millions of cars burning noxious fossil fuels escaping into the air and we think no harm can come from this? Companies dumping chemicals into our drinking water, no problem? We are finally starting to wake up and I hope it’s not too late.

  • Denise – these issues drive me crazy, too. Have you seen Green Energy Times? We are devoted to do all we can to reduce our carbon emissions on time, which scares us that it might be too late if people and businesses do not understand the seriousness of what needs to be done… NOW! There is NO waiting! There is no turning back.

    We must move forward and each one of us individually do all we can do to lessen our own carbon footprint. We can’t wait for the government to do it for us. It WILL be too late, if we sit back and don’t do more that we think we can do.

    One of the best things we can do that will make a huge impact on our environment is to move into Energy Independence as quickly as possible. With the current lower price of Solar panels, the incredible tax incentives and rebates and low interest rates, there has never been a better time to make this move.

    This is all covered in Green Energy Times. You can view the last 2 issues right from this site. Watch for the current issue that came out today to be added to the site soon…
