Biography

As a noted commentator on the political, social and psychological history of our time, Christopher Booker has in recent years, through his weekly Sunday Telegraph column, become the most conspicuous' global warming sceptic' in the British press. He has based his view on exhaustive research into the scientific evidence for and against the theory of 'man-made climate change'. His professional interest in this issue grew out of research for his previous book "Scared To Death", co-written with Dr Richard North, a study of the 'scare phenomenon' which has been such a prominent feature of Western life in recent decades. Booker's other recent books have included "The Seven Basic Plots", a best-selling analysis of why we tell stories which has established itself as a standard text (also published by Continuum). He has been an author and journalist for nearly 50 years, and was the founding editor of the satirical magazine "Private Eye".

Media reviews
Christopher Booker narrates this story with the journalist's pace and eye for telling detail and the historian's forensic thoroughness which have made him a formidable opponent of humbug...the shelf of sceptical books keeps filling and Booker's belongs there with the best. The Spectator Meticulously researched, provocative and challenging... Buy this book and read it carefully. It needs your attention. Irish Times I, and anyone seriously interested in this subject, owes a great debt to Christopher Booker, who has set down all the arguments for doubt in a single, concise book... I think anyone remotely concerned about this huge controversy should read this courageous piece of work. Peter Hitchens, Mail on Sunday Whether you agree with Booker or not, this is an important, brave book making and explaining many valid points. The Scotsman
