Publishers must know they’re onto a winner with exposés of ‘the great climate change fraud’. But you only need to look at the language on the back and inner covers of the book to understand the agenda. Booker is concerned with ‘the costly bill’, threat to ‘the Western way of life’ and ‘rollback of the industrial age’. This is the fightback of the terminally self-interested - incredulous that they should have to forego luxury and wealth for any reason under the sun. Sadly for Booker, many of those who agree with him would never come within spitting distance of a bookshop.
