this controversial new book Australia's leading geologist makes the case that carbon dioxide is just one of many factors that drive climate -- and a relatively insignificant one at that. Heaven and Earth engagingly and comprehensively synthesizes what we know-- or think we know -- about the sun, earth, ice, water, and air. Heaven and Earth is a powerful argument against many of the punitive--and expensive -- laws that are now being passed to 'protect' our environment. Remember the great Alar scare of 1989? Remember when we were headed toward a New Ice Age? Remember when the Arctic was melting but the Antarctic was not? And when ethanol was the answer to everything? Ian Plimer's Heaven and Earth blows away the smoke and let's us look directly into the flame.
