I just got an alert from commenter Neville at Watts Up With That about a book that is going great guns in New Zealand called Air Con: The Seriously Inconvenient Truth About Global Warming. I haven't read it. But here is what Neville has to say:
...a new book debunking global warming was released in NZ, “Air Con: The Seriously Inconvenient Truth About Global Warming”, by an investigative journalist over here named Ian Wishart.I look forward to reading reviews (or the book for that matter - when I can afford it) in the coming days.
My copy arrived by courier Thursday morning, and a friend at Parliament tells me the Government received a number of copies as well.
Salinger is quoted in the book, quite usefully confirming the impact of the Little Ice Age on New Zealand’s glaciation (the same LIA that Mann and others tried to argue didn’t affect the southern hemisphere).
The number one talk radio network yesterday was starting to buzz about the book, and a reviewer for one of the major book chains was on the radio saying it’ll be a number one bestseller - apparently books have been flying off the shelves.
