In this major assessment of leading climate-change skeptic Bjorn Lomborg, Howard Friel meticulously deconstructs the Danish statistician's claim that global warming is 'no catastrophe' by exposing the systematic misrepresentations and partial accounting that are at the core of climate skepticism. His detailed analysis serves not only as a guide to reading the global warming skeptics, but also as a model for assessing the state of climate science. With attention to the complexities of climate-related phenomena across a range of areas, Lomborg's "Deception" also offers readers an enlightening pole-to-pole review of some of today's most urgent climate concerns.

Howard Friel is an independent scholar and author. His previous books, The Record of the Paper and Israel-Palestine on Record, both of which were co-authored by Richard Falk, focus on foreign policy, international law, and media criticism.
