Very good

This is an amazing book, puts a lot into perspective... Eye opening if you will.

State of Fear

While I found the fiction too implausible and exaggerated, the hidden gem is the debunking of the false perception created by the bad science and fear mongering of many entities pretending to act in our best interest. This view may not be fashionable, but then Hitler's enthusiastic adoption of the utterly false "science" of Eugenics was fashionable in its day and look where that got us. The bibliography is wonderful. The world needs more works like this to bring a dissenting view to a larger audience.

A Great Read

Regardless where you fall on the endless debate of man-made global warming this book will at least make you consider an alternative opinion.

The first few chapters are a bit mind-numbing, but necessary to set-up the plot and introduce a multitude of characters. All things considered this is a fast-paced, hard to put down book.
