Two favorable reviews of Unsettled: What Climate Science Tells Us, What It Doesn’t, And Why It Matters

By Ross Kaminsky.

Throughout Unsettled, you’ll become unsettled at the brazenness of the lies and misdirection used by those who support the Green New Deal, carbon taxes, painting your roof white, eliminating meat from our diets, forcing you to ride a bike to work or, even worse, take public transportation, and on and on and on. Almost everything you’ve been told by the mainstream media, including by “scientists,” is either intentionally or unintentionally erroneous, leading politicians to support policies that not only won’t help us today but will cause tremendous damage to future American generations’ standard of living and economic opportunities.

By Rupert Darwall.

The APS climate debate was the turning point in Koonin’s thinking about climate change and consensus climate science (“The Science”). “I began by believing that we were in a race to save the planet from climate catastrophe,” Koonin writes in his new book, “Unsettled: What Climate Science Tells Us, What It Doesn’t, And Why It Matters.” “I came away from the APS workshop not only surprised, but shaken by the realization that climate science was far less mature than I had supposed.” “Unsettled” is an authoritative primer on the science of climate change that lifts the lid on The Science and finds plenty that isn’t as it should be. 

"The last, overlooked but still active front of World War II"

Melanie Phillips:

For what is shockingly clear from this unique pathology is that there’s a profound need in the West for the Jews to be proved bad people. Among the Israel-haters is a breathless eagerness for the moment when they can shout “gotcha” and then put the Jews into the public pillory.

The causes of this are undoubtedly complex. But the main reason is surely that they can’t tolerate the idea that the “chosen people”—a term they misrepresent as “privileged,” despite the Jews’ belief that they were chosen instead for an onerous set of duties—may be morally superior to them.
