Our reviewer friend here fails to point out he belongs to one of the most fanatical warming organisations in the UK, one which disregards all truth in order to ram home the AGW lies.
Those with a more open mindset will be aware of the many, many inconvenient facts which daily show the outrageous claims of organisations such as Grantham to be biased and extreme.
The evidence quite clearly points to natural climate variation doing what it always does.
There is no wildly accelerating climb in temperatures. Sea level is not rising out of control. Ice is not melting at an unprecedented rate.
The alarmist call is more and more being drowned out by the climate actuality. The activists are past their sell by date and are doing everything within their power to grasp back the control they thought they had.

I'm surprised and disappointed that American Scientist has published a review of three very biased books by a very biased reviewer who works in a very biased institute in a very biased school (LSE), founded by the four Fabians Beatrice and Sidney Webb, Graham Wallas and George Bernard Shaw.
Who was it that said "LSE has caused more harm in Africa than all its dictators put together"?

"Penguins are 10 times older than humans and have been here for a very, very long time," said Daniel Ksepka, Ph.D., a North Carolina State University research assistant professor. Dr. Ksepka researches the evolution of penguins and how they came to inhabit the African continent.
Because penguins have been around for over 60 million years, their fossil record is extensive. Fossils that Dr. Ksepka and his colleagues have discovered provide clues about migration patterns and the diversity of penguin species.
