An Appeal to Reason by Nigel Lawson
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Lawson carefully and succinctly examines all aspects of the debate: the science, the economics, the politics and the ethics. He concludes that conventional wisdom on global warming is suspect on a number of grounds; that global warming is not the devastating threat to the planet it is widely alleged to be; and that the remedy being proposed is, for very good reasons, not politically attainable; and even if it were, it would be worse than the warming it is supposed to avert. This hard-hitting response, argued with logic, common sense and wit, is particularly relevant to India, given that as a prime mover of the so-called 'Basic' countries (Brazil, South Africa, India and China) India is at the forefront of the environment debate, and that policies on emissions applicable to developed nations would have a direct impact on its rapid economic development - and livelihoods.
