9780715638415: An Appeal to Reason: A Cool Look at Global Warming
Review:

'Splendid ... elegantly written, thorough, entertaining and, above all, convincing' - Financial Times. 'Clear, analytical and compelling' Economist. ' This is a fascinating tome, the best exposition of the sceptical view on global warming that I have yet come across. It is comprehensive, packed with useful and clearly referenced facts and refreshingly free of the fanatical tone that plauges so many works on the subject' - Literary Review. 'It is intensely refreshing to find in Nigel Lawson someone who, without claiming to have all the answers, is at least brave enough to ask eminently sensible questions' - Spectator. 'Only one senior political figure in Britain has dared stand apart from [the] stifling orthodoxy: Nigel Lawson' - The Telegraph. 'A valuable antidote to the sloppiness surrounding climate change. This short book forces a rethink not only of some of the more alarmist predictions of global warming theory, but also of the fundamental underpinnings of the theory itself' - The Mail on Sunday. 'I'm dismayed to discover that I agree with considerable amounts of what Lawson is saying' - Sunday Times.

From the Publisher:

In recent years, sensational warnings about climate change have dominated the headlines. In this hard-hitting response to the scaremongering of climate alarmists, Nigel Lawson, former Chancellor of the Exchequer and Secretary of State for Energy, argues that it is time for us to take a cool look at global warming. Lawson carefully and succinctly examines all aspects of the global warming issue - the science, the economics, the politics and the ethics - concluding that conventional wisdom on the subject is deeply flawed. He asserts that, even if the majority view of the science is correct, the proposed solution to the problem would be more damaging than the threat it has been designed to avert - and, in any case is, for very good reasons, not politically attainable. Insightful, brilliantly reasoned and thoroughly researched, this is a much-needed corrective to the barrage of hype and spin surrounding a subject that affects every one of us.
