Revisit State of Fear

We just finished re-reading Michael Crichton's fact-packed "novel", State of Fear and it is so satisfying, six years after its publication by Harper Collins, that this brilliant scientist, villified in 2005, when it was number on on Amazon AND the Times lists, has been fully vindicated and his detractors scattered in disarray. Crichton died in November 2008.

Built around a plotline of eco-terrosts in full savage and murderous cry, the 641 page book has the most exhautive, wide-ranging plethora of footnotes and annotation of any source for the refutation of foolish of non-scientific eco-climate disinformation.

Crichton foresaw the fudging and outright lies of the IPCC at the UN, and a now-disgraced NASA bureaucrat and of course, Paul Ehrlich who predicted, in the 80's that 100 million wouldstarve to death by 2010.

Here is a sample of irrefutable, uncontested, peer-reviewed scientific comparison in Crichton's masterpiece:

If we take the earth's atmosphere as being a football field (100 yards) and with oxygen taking up60 yards, nitrogen and argon the resttoward the goal line, the last six inches would be CO2 (carbon dioxide, the greenhouse gas of choice to be controlled).

The Kyotop Treaty's Draconian requirements for carbon emission control would have rewduced USA emissions by 5% and Russia's by
3%---in 100 years !!

The book's information is as follows:

Author Michael Crichton

Publisher HarperCollins

Media type Print (Hardcover and Paperback)

Pages 641 (798 in special paperback ed.)

ISBN 0007181590

OCLC Number 56759026

If you go to, you can get a copy (Hardcover or mass-paperback) for as little as one cent ($0.01) if you shop the"Used" sellers.

It would be nice if we could send all of you a copy.

VERY few scientific tomes are more annotated and offer such bibliographical heft.

You will reallyenjoy the pathetic vapidity of the well intentioned boobs being schooled and disemboweled by the Harvard Law / M.I.T double-credentialed retrospect based on what we know now.

It is one of the best books ever. And I do not remember either Al Gore or Michael Moore even being mentioned. Enjoy !
