Global warming activists have said anyone who questions their warming theory is akin to a Holocaust "denier" and is a kook who ought to be ignored. After all, there is a "scientific consensus."
For Lawrence Solomon, environmentalist author and activist, that answer wasn't good enough. He decided to find out for himself whether any "real" scientists dissent from the Gore/UN line.
What he found shocked him. Solomon discovered that on every "headline" global warming issue, not only were there serious scientists who dissented, the dissenters were consistently the more accomplished and eminent scientists by far.
Solomon demonstrates conclusively that many of the greatest experts in the field are deeply skeptical of the Gore and Co. version of global warming.
But what does that say about the credibility of the warming alarmist who, unable to answer these great scientists, resort to slandering them or even denying their existence?
Lawrence Solomon set out to write a book showing how "deniers" were on the fringes of science. He said: "I accepted the prevailing view that scientists overwhelmingly believe that climate change threatens the planet. I doubted only claims that the dissenters were either kooks on the margins of science or sell-outs in the pockets of the oil companies." Solomon says "somewhere along the way, I stopped believing that a scientific consensus exists on climate change." This book explains why he stopped believing in the gospel of global warming.
