Triggerwarming: Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Global Warming (But were afraid to ask). By Jeffrey Grimshaw.
This is a lavishly illustrated introduction to climate and energy issues that is accessible for people who do not need the amount of detail in the important books by Ian Plimer and the series Climate Change: The Facts from the Institute of Public Affairs.
The book begins with a survey of the damage caused by the western obsession with reducing the supply of airborne plant food, CO2, the breath of life. It covers the lives lost by taking corn out food chain to put ethanol in petrol tanks, the environmental impact, the corruption of science and the perversion of education, the degradation of public debate and the detrimental impact on the mental health of children, the proliferation of regulations perpetrated by scientifically illiterate bureaucrats and politicians.
