'The Inquisition of Climate Science' – A Book Review

The Inquisition of Climate Science by James Lawrence Powell is an essential literary resource for understanding how modern climate science is conducted, and equally, for understanding how climate change denialism has evolved and continues to undermine the public interest, to its great peril.

  How often do you see positive environmental messages infiltrating (or occupying) the television set or global media, especially in programming for children?
