The Lomborg Deception: Setting the Record Straight about Global Warming


The Lomborg Deception: Setting the Record Straight about Global Warming Cover


Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this major assessment of leading climate-change skeptic Bjørn Lomborg, Howard Friel meticulously deconstructs the Danish statisticians claim that global warming is “no catastrophe” by exposing the systematic misrepresentations and partial accounting that are at the core of climate skepticism. His detailed analysis serves not only as a guide to reading the global warming skeptics, but also as a model for assessing the state of climate science. With attention to the complexities of climate-related phenomena across a range of areas—from Arctic sea ice to the Antarctic ice sheet—The Lomborg Deception also offers readers an enlightening review of some of todays most urgent climate concerns.

Friels book is the first to respond directly to Lomborgs controversial research as published in The Skeptical Environmentalist (2001) and Cool It: The Skeptical Environmentalists Guide to Global Warming (2007). His close reading of Lomborgs textual claims and supporting footnotes reveals a lengthy list of findings that will rock climate skeptics and their allies in the government and news media, demonstrating that the published peer-reviewed climate science, as assessed mainly by the U.N.s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, has had it mostly right—even if somewhat conservatively right—all along. Friels able defense of Al Gores An Inconvenient Truth against Lomborgs repeated attacks is by itself worth an attentive reading.
