Carbon taxes won't make the slightest difference to climate change, so why are we introducing them? Polar bear populations are on the increase, so why are we worrying about them? Global warming is better than global cooling, so why are we trying to stop it? James Delingpole has all the answers - and they're not the ones Tim Flannery would like you to hear. In Killing The Earth To Save It the outspoken blogger and author who helped break the Climategate scandal tells the shocking true story of how a handful of political activists, green campaigners and voodoo scientists engineered the biggest, most expensive and destructive outbreak of mass hysteria. In the name of "saving the planet for future generations" they're chopping down rainforests to make biofuels; they're carpeting the landscape with bat-chomping, bird-mincing wind farms; they're raising taxes, increasing regulations, killing the economy, driving up the cost of living, destroying jobs. But is any of this stuff really necessary? Or might there be a better way?
