Meltdown

the predictable distortion of global warming by scientists, politicians, and the media

Published by Cato Institute in Washington, D.C .
Written in English.

About the Book

Why is news about global warming always bad? Why do scientists so often offer dire predictions about the future of the environment? In Meltdown, climatologist Patrick J. Michaels says it’s only natural. He argues that the way we do science today--when issues compete with each other for monopoly funding by the federal government--creates a culture of exaggeration and a political community that then takes credit for having saved us from certain doom.
