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

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.

About the Author:

Nigel Lawson, Baron Lawson of Blaby, served in the Thatcher administration between 1979 and 1990 in the constituency of Blaby, Leicestershire. He was Chancellor of the Exchequer between June 1983 and October 1989. He has written about global warming in "The Times" and "Prospect", and presented a lecture on the subject to the Centre for Policy Studies think-tank in 2006. He lives in France.

From Publishers Weekly:

Former British energy secretary and chancellor of the exchequer Lawson succinctly lambastes global warming hysteria in this slim book. To Lawson, save the planet is the most ludicrous slogan ever coined; Al Gore's tendentious documentary, An Inconvenient Truth, is a fanciful cherry-picking of phenomena illustrating a predetermined alarmist narrative; and the new religion of environmentalism contains a grain of truth—and a mountain of nonsense. Lawson's tone is occasionally shrill, but his insights are keen and refreshingly iconoclastic. He argues that green protectionism, the movement to restrict importing produce because of the incurred food miles, damages the global economy more than global warming ever could, and the would-be saviours of the planet are, in practice, the enemies of poverty reduction in the developing world. Lawson reserves his deepest contempt for the U.N.'s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, co-winner with Gore of the 2007 Nobel Peace Prize, which he dubs an unethical, politically correct pressure group whose most recent report misrepresents the reality of man-made greenhouse gas emissions and fails to embrace the potential of humans to adapt to climate change. The conservative (and Conservative) author's contrarian synthesis of political thinking and economic analysis is notably well argued and well written—and sure to raise the hackles of those on the other side of the issue.
