So you think the
theory of disastrous climate change has been proved! You believe that scientists are united in their efforts to force
the nations of the world to reduce their carbon emissions! You imagine perhaps that scientists are far
too professional to overstate their case!
Maybe we should
all think again. In his book The Climate Caper, with a light touch
and nicely readable manner, Professor Paltridge shows that the case for action
against climate change is not nearly so certain as is presented to politicians
and the public. He leads us through the
massive uncertainties which are inherently part of the ‘climate modelling
process’; he examines the even greater uncertainties associated with economic
forecasts of climatic doom; and he discusses in detail the conscious and
sub-conscious forces operating to ensure that scepticism within the scientific
community is kept from the public eye.
It seems that
governments are indeed becoming captive to a scientific and technological elite
– an elite which is achieving its ends by manipulating fear of climate change
into the world’s greatest example of a religion for the politically correct.
