Global warming":
the Left's last best chance to gain a stranglehold on our political system and economy

For decades, environmentalism has been the Left's best excuse for increasing government control over our actions in ways both large and small. It's for Mother Earth! It's for the children! It's for the whales! But until now, the doomsday-scenario environmental scares they've trumped up haven't been large enough to justify the lifestyle restrictions they want to impose. With global warming, however, greenhouse gasbags can argue that auto emissions in Ohio threaten people in Paris, and that only "global governance" (Jacques Chirac's words) can tackle such problems.

Now, in The Politically Incorrect Guide(tm) to Global Warming and Environmentalism, Christopher C. Horner tears the cover off the Left's manipulation of environmental issues for political purposes--and lays out incontrovertible evidence for the fact that catastrophic man-made global warming is just more Chicken-Little hysteria, not actual science. He explains why, although Al Gore and his cronies among the media elites and UN globalists endlessly bleat that "global warming" is an unprecedented global crisis, they really think of it as a dream come true. It's the ideal scare campaign for those who hate capitalism and love big government. For, as Horner explains, if global warming really were as bad as the Leftist doomsayers insist it is, then no policy imaginable could "solve" it. According to the logic of the greens' own numbers, no matter how much we sacrifice there would still be more to do. That makes global warming the bottomless well of excuses for the relentless growth of biggovernment.

Horner (an attorney and senior fellow at the Competitive Enterprise Institute) reveals the full anti-American, anti-capitalist, and anti-human agenda of today's environmentalists, dubbing them "green on the outside, red to the core." He details how they use strong-arm legal tactics--and worse--against those who dare to point out the weakness of their arguments for global warming. Along the way, he explodes ten top global warming myths, carefully examining the evidence to determine how much warming there really is and what is actually causing it. He exposes the lies that the environmental lobby routinely tells to make its case; the ways in which it is trying to impose initiatives such as the Kyoto Protocol on an unwilling American public; and much more--including the green lobby's favorite politicians (John Kerry, John McCain, Joe Lieberman, and others).

It's time to stand up to the environmentalist industry and insist: human beings are not the enemy. In breezy, light-hearted, and always entertaining fashion, The Politically Incorrect Guide(tm) to Global Warming and Environmentalism gives you the facts you need to do so.

Excellent read, very informative. The book actually reveals the left-wing agenda behind imposing their belief as real science.

The dvd "Toxic Sludge Is Good For You" explains how this author and his friends thrive on money they are paid to lie to Congress and everyone else so the oil companies and the chemical companies and the Koch brothers can reign over the plutocracy the United States of America has become. Science fiction at its worst.

Horner essentially gets none of the science right, and makes many derogatory (and unsubstantiated) claims about people who are environmentally motivated. He also fails to mention that his organization is funded by fossil fuel companies.

One only needs to look up the author to realize this book is politically-motivated propaganda: ... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Christopher_C._Horner

Yes there is a load of corruption (on the financial/political side) associated with climate change, but that, of course, doesn't change climate change! (Cap-and-Trade, originally promoted by the Republicans in 1983 during the Reagan administration, and back then soundly laughed out of congress [still had a few authentic democrats back then], is now being pushed by the democrats? ? ? (Except Kucinich, Defazio and Greenpeace, of course.) Al Gore makes a movie on climate change and then, with two of his buddies from Goldman Sachs, forms a multi-billion dollar hedge fund to speculate on carbon permits! Shady and shoddy behaviors abound, but that won't change climate change! (Cap-and-trade does nothing to lower pollution, it simply allows more FREE MONEY to the banks and oil companies, an extension of their shadow banking processes. The various climate exchanges are owned by Climate Exchange PLC, registered on the Isle of Man, offshore tax haven, and owned by the banks and oil companies.)

i guess any reading is good but why do people fear that scientists might have an agenda (like maybe facts) but there high paid detractors do not (like a new boat).
