An Appeal to Reason
How state-funded NGOs are corrupting the political process in developing countries
The latest edition of Nigel Lawson's controversial bestseller which provides a trenchant critique of climate change policy
Lawson carefully and succinctly examines all aspects of the global warming issue – the science, the economics, the politics and the ethics – concluding that conventional wisdom on the subject is deeply flawed. He asserts that, even if the majority view of the science is correct, the proposed solution to the problem would be more damaging than the threat it has been designed to avert – and, in any case is, for very good reasons, not politically attainable.
Insightful, brilliantly reasoned and thoroughly researched, this is a much-needed corrective to the barrage of hype and spin surrounding a subject that affects every one of us.

‘Clear, analytical and compelling’ Economist
‘This is a fascinating tome, the best exposition of the sceptical view on global warming that I have yet come across. It is comprehesive, packed with useful and clearly referenced facts and refreshingly free of the fanatical tone that plagues so many works on the subject’ Literary Review
