THE HOCKEY STICK AND THE CLIMATE WARS: DISPATCHES FROM THE FRONT LINES
by Michael E. Mann
Columbia University Press (Footprint Books), $42.95 hb, 395 pp, 9780231152549

 

In my recent commentary on The Garnaut Review 2011, I said ‘Climate change is often framed as a number of battles; between science and opinion, between sustainable development and economic growth, between government control and individual freedom ...’ (ABR, November 2011). Little did I know that my next review would be of a book about the Climate Wars, written by an active warrior in those battles, and subtitled Dispatches from the Front Lines.
