The Climate Files by Fred Pearce
But this belief and Is the climate warming? Is this caused by human activity? Is our planet in danger of destruction unless we do something drastic to prevent it? even hesitant steps to take action have alarmed those who make huge profits out of that lifestyle, especially the oil companies. These and their faithful supporters in sections of the Press have mounted a huge campaign to sow doubts about climate change in people's minds.
Imagine their delight when, as a result of hacking, an unexpected weapon was placed in their hands. It seems that some scientists at the forefront of the climate debate have been emailing each other with the intention of concealing certain facts which expose either downright falsification or at least suppression of evidence that they have deliberately hidden from the public, which might shed doubt on some of their conclusions..
This book by a noted scientific journalist from The Guardian thoroughly examines all the evidence on both sides and is well worth reading by those (and it should be all of us) interested in the fate of our planet.
