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).
