The Inquisition of Climate Science

by James Lawrence Powell

New York: Columbia University Press, 2011. 232 pages.

Reviewer John R. Mashey praises The Inquisition of Climate Science as “an excellent, well-written book for the general audience which gives readers a broad view of organized attacks on climate science over the last few decades,” quoting Powell’s conclusion, “‘If deniers can vilify individual scientists and neutralize the field of climate science simply because of ideology and a conspiracy theory, what will be the next field of science—or art, or history, or literature, or medicine...?’” He adds, “Readers new to this topic will find The Inquisition of Climate Science a fine starting point.”
