A rsthand account o the political war onscience and a primer on climate changethat addresses the real questions at stake
Global Warming andPolitical Intimidation
How Politicians Cracked Down on Scientistsas the Earth Heated Up
Raymond S. Bradley
Global warming is the number one environmentalissue o our time, yet some prominent politicians havereused to accept scientic evidence o humanresponsibility and have opposed any legislation orinternational agreement that would limit greenhousegas emissions. A ew have gone even urther andhave tried to destroy the reputations o scientistsresearching climate change by deliberately under-mining the credibility o their research. These politi-cians have sought to sow seeds o doubt in the mindso the public and to weaken public and political sup-port or the control o ossil uel use.In this powerul book, highly respected climatescientist Raymond Bradley provides the inside storyrom the ront lines o the debate. In clear and directlanguage, he describes the tactics those in powerhave used to intimidate him and his colleagues—part o a larger pattern o governmental suppressiono scientic inormation, politics at the expense o empirically based discourse.Speaking rom his experience, Bradley exposesthe ault lines in the global warming debate, whileproviding a concise primer on climate change. Theresult is a cautionary tale o how politics and sciencecan become atally intertwined, written by onescientist who was unwittingly ensnared in a web o political intimidation.RAYMOND S. BRADLEYis UniversityDistinguished Proessor in the Departmento Geosciences and director o the ClimateSystem Research Center at the Universityo Massachusetts Amherst. He is author o
