How many.chapters on subsidy farming, maximising your aire-miles and conference hotel loyalty points,, maximising your grants by tagging "warming" onto the summary of all reports, joining reliable and tight knit "peer groups" for mutual benefit, cosying up to influential, pliable politicians and deciding which well established energy supplier will best fund opposition to any new energy supplier.

We all laugh at Climate Change Scape goat stories but you wont find this one funny.

Slate Magazine claims the current absolute savage barbarism of Islamic Militants in ISIS controlled Iraq and Syria can be blamed on Climate Change.Apparently it was an exceptionally hot drought year in Iraq the Sunni farmers all got pissed off and joined ISIS so they say. Nothing to do with the Shiai,s keeping all the Oil revenues for themselves.

Wheres the peer reviewed Data for this years Middle Eastern Temperatures then.
Must have been another Scorcher in Baghdad..
Like it was exceptionally hot on the 9th of September 2001 or the 7th of July 2007.

Richard why don't you just change the long winded title of your book to


even the horrific stuff.

My backlog of unread books and papers is too large already, and my budget for more is long expended. But this book looks very promising. Prof Tol being a free man who thinks for himself rather than a Sophist for hire.
