Moviegoing readers of WUWT probably remember this famous moment from a famous film based on a Michel Crichton book. While “State of Fear” might come to mind first, it’s actually one of the 50 Greatest Jurassic Park Moments.
So why has Michael Mann’s new book got such great PR. My hunch is that this might be a media set up – hype the thing and wait for nature to take its course. Sit back and enjoy the show?

I wonder if Columbia University Press is paying for this PR or whether there’s somebody else involved?
Whoever is behind it, the message doesn’t seem to be getting through. Despite clocking up nearly 100 Amazon reviews, the book is currently around 3500 on the Amazon chart (9500 in the UK). Is this a sign of the changed times or is it just that the market for climate books is dead?
