Climate Change/Global Warming

Postby Aldo Zagonel » Thu Jun 10, 2010 2:09 pm

Andrew Freedman wrote in the Washington Post a review to an interesting new book by Naomi Oreskes and Erik M. Conway, called “Merchants of Doubt.” Here’s an excerpt from the Post:

“Through the use of original documents and other source material, Oreskes and Conway trace the history of organized scientific disinformation campaigns back to the 1950s. Although the book does not focus solely on climate change, it is highly relevant to anyone who follows the climate issue, from avid consumers of climate information to casual observers. The book demonstrates what many commentators, such as myself, have stated for years: that attacks on climate science and individual scientists are motivated more by a hostility to the proposed policy solutions to the problem than by clear scientific evidence showing that greenhouse gas emissions do not cause climate change after all.”

Here’s a link to the full story:

And here’s a link to the book overview by the editors:
