Crichton Creates State of Fear among Global Warming Activists

Via Cato Institute:

In his best-selling new novel, Michael Crichton deplores the myths about global warming and other alleged environmental problems that keep Americans in a "state of fear."

Crichton recommends the work of Cato environmental scholar Pat Michaels, author of Meltdown: The Predictable Distortion of Global Warming by Scientists, Politicians, and the Media, noting that Michaels writes with "a sense of humor and a clear style." The novelist also praises the work of Wilfred Beckerman, author of the Cato book Through Green-Colored Glasses: Environmentalism Reconsidered, saying Beckerman "cares more about the poor of the world than he does the elitist egos of Western environmentalists." Global warming activists seem to fear that Crichton's book could tip the balance in the public debate about climate change.
