Censoring Science: Inside the Political Attack on Dr. James Hansen and the Truth of Global Warming Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

From acclaimed writer and physicist Mark Bowen, Censoring Science tells the true story of the Bush administrations censorship of the worlds preeminent climatologist, and the science behind global warming that they do not want you to know.

The facts dont lie:

2005 was the warmest year since the invention of the thermometer.

2006 is on track to become the hottest year ever recorded in the United States.

The six hottest years on record have occurred in the last eight years, and the twenty-two hottest years on record have occurred in the last twenty-six years.

Preeminent climatologist and leading NASA scientist Dr. James Hansen has been studying climate for over three decades. It was his testimony to a Senate committee in 1988 that first brought the threat of global warming to the worlds attention. In January 2006, news broke that the Bush administration had been attempting to censor Dr. Hansenobscuring his message and suppressing the vast body of his scientific work, which unequivocally demonstrates the reality and immense danger of global warming.

Now, for the first time and with unfiltered access, writer and physicist Mark Bowen finally tells the exclusive story of Hansens decades-long battle to bring the truth about global warming to light. Censoring Science illuminates the real science behind global warming and maintains that we can still prevent environmental disaster, while both strengthening our economy and our national security. In the tradition of Ron Suskinds blockbuster bestseller, The Price of Loyalty, Censoring Science exposes the truth behind the administrations spin doctors, and shares the inside story of one of the most important andinfluential scientists of our time.

Synopsis:

From acclaimed writer and physicist Bowen comes the true story of the Bush administration's censorship of the world's preeminent climatologist, and the science behind global warning that the government does not want the public to know.

Synopsis:

The dramatic story of global warming, politics, and the scientist Al Gore calls ?the most powerful and consistent voice calling for intelligent action to preserve our planet?s environment.?

Censoring Science is the gripping story of the world?s preeminent climatologist, Dr. James Hansen, the ?pivotal character in the greatest and most politically charged science story of our time? (New Scientist). NASA?s leading climate expert, Dr. Hansen, first broke the international news on global warming at a Senate hearing in 1988. Little did he expect the rising storm of politically motivated resistance, denial, and obstruction.

Revealing the extent of the Bush administration?s censorship of Dr. Hansen?s findings, Censoring Science sets the record straight with solid scientific facts such as: the eight hottest years on record have occurred in the last decade, and ice is melting at record rates all around the planet. Dr. Hansen shows how we can still prevent environmental disaster if the country and the government are willing to face the truth about global warming.
