People send me stuff, such as this email I recently received about a global warming spy thriller. I’m not fully comfortable with the “hoax” title, as there indeed has been some warming in the past century, some of it man made and some of it natural variation, but there’s also been a largess of funding and a shedload of zealotry and hype attached to all of that, and that’s what this book is about.
As a retired Earth scientist, I am appalled at the war the current Administration and the EPA are waging against fossil fuels. Many good books and websites such as yours have effectively debunked the pseudoscience behind climate change. Sadly, this academic evidence has done little to sway alarmists, educators, regulators, the liberal media or the Pope.
My approach to this controversy is a bit different. I have written an apocalyptic thriller exposing the hypocrisy masquerading as man-made global warming. While the plot is entirely fictional, scientific issues embedded in the novel are essentially factual. Anyone reading this story will be made aware of the sound reasons to reject counterproductive limits on greenhouse gas emissions. A Sinister Charade is available as a paperback or eBook at Amazon.com.
This book is self-published. Although the intended audience is different from the people who are drawn to your site and twitter account, I would be thankful for any help you might provide in publicizing this novel. Your feedback is appreciated.
The description at Amazon reads:
Jesse Ngata, a prominent oceanographer, believes global warming is a sinister charade intended to destroy the American way of life. His damaging accusations provoke an attempt on his life, forcing Jesse to hunt down the climate change criminals before they kill him. Jesse’s nemesis, Basil Radoff, is a shadowy Russian agent who was given a fortune and an unconventional mission when the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991. He has spent the past twenty-five years convincing global thought leaders that fossil fuel emissions are destroying the Earth’s environment. Radoff has persuaded the United Nations to ban carbon emissions, while continuing his malevolent campaign to cripple the world’s energy industry. Millions of children are being taught to fear their carbon footprint. Billions of dollars are corrupting scientists and regulators around the world. Factories are shuttered and rusting. Environmental constraints are killing jobs. Radoff’s global warming hoax may be too entrenched to die. America’s future hangs in the balance, and only Jesse Ngata can stop this diabolical attack.
One of the reviews reads:
A Sinister Charade projects the hypocrisy of global warming as a means for our government to control and instill fear into everyone. From the political leaders and scientists to the individuals trying to live a normal existence…there is deception. Fear is instilled upon people by those they should have been able to trust. This book is a fast moving, exciting, soul-searching thriller. It was food for thought. Like the seasons, our lives are changing. We can’t control those changes. We can’t stop them and we have no more control over them than the change in weather. Global warming is God’s doing….not man’s. However, there are those who would like for us to think otherwise. A great read. Kudos to Dan Coffman.
