Nigel Lawson's AN APPEAL TO REASON Now in Paperback

New in paperback this week - and just in time for the Climate Change Conference in Copenhagen - is Appeal to Reason: A Cool Look at Global Warming, by Nigel Lawson.

In this well-informed and hard-hitting response to the scaremongering of the climate alarmists, Nigel Lawson, former Secretary of State for Energy under Margaret Thatcher, 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. He concludes that the conventional wisdom on the subject is suspect on a number of grounds, that global warming is not the devastating threat to the planet it is widely alleged to be, and that the remedy that is currently being proposed, which is in any event politically unattainable, would be worse that the threat it is supposed to avert. Argued with logic, common sense, and even wit, and thoroughly sourced and referenced, Appeal to Reason makes a cool contribution to the heated debate.
