Rob Lyons reviews Donaa Lafamboise’s “The Delinquent Teenager Who Was Mistaken for the World’s Top Climate Expert” for Spiked.
Laframboise has done the world a favour by pointing out, in detail, why the so-called Climate Bible is nothing of the sort. That doesn’t mean we won’t face environmental problems in the future – though the experience of the IPCC farce should reinforce our scepticism about any such claims – but it does remind us that those problems have to be balanced up with all the other demands made upon society’s time and resources.
That balancing act is called politics. It’s a messy, frustrating but utterly vital process that should never be shut down by anyone waving a holy book and a hidden agenda.
