Leveraging four years of original research, Jim, with DeSmogBlog editor Richard Littlemore, documented the participation of lapsed scientists and industry-funded think tanks in a bogus controversy about global warming. They then analyzed and explained how mainstream media stood by — or in some cases colluded — while deniers turned a clear issue of science (and an issue for public safety) into a partisan argument that no one could win. The critically acclaimed Climate Cover Up won Foreword Magazine Book of the Year, a Silver Medal in the Nautilus Book Awards, and was a Green Book Festival Award Winner.
“This book explains how the propaganda generated by self-interest groups has purposely created confusion about climate change. It’s an imperative read for a successful future.”
