Ian Plimer's book creating a storm in the US.

Ian Plimer is doing the radio rounds on US talkback radio and the book Heaven + Earth is causing a stir, reaching number 14 last week on Amazon best sellers list. Here are some of the feedback and comments taken from Taylor Trade the US publisher of Heaven + Earth.

Reviews for
Heaven and Earth: Global Warming: The Missing Science
"...[A]rguably no one is more responsible for the shift in opinion than University of Adelaide geologist Ian Plimer, whose new book Heaven and Earth: Global Warming, the Missing Science is an authoritative scientific refutation of the claims of human-caused global warming."—

"...[A] wonderfully comprehensive and fearless book... If there are any willing to hear some truly inconvenient truths on the stampeding advocacy of global warming, Mr. Plimer's book is a collection of some of the sternest."—The Globe and Mail

"Only a geological perspective can provide a proper view of climate change. Professor Plimer's book does a masterful job of demonstrating that Nature rules the climate, not human activity."—S. Fred Singer, Professor Emeritus of Environmental Sciences, University of Virginia

"...the best book on science and scientists I have ever read."—Andrew Alexander, The Daily Mail (UK)

"...a brilliantly argued book... Heaven and Earth is an evidence-based attack on conformity and orthodoxy, including my own, and a reminder to respect informed dissent and beware of ideology subverting evidence."—Paul Sheehan, Sydney Morning Herald

"... a damning critique of the 'evidence' underpinning man-made global warming."—Kimberley A. Strassel, Wall Street Journal

"This is a very powerful, clear, understandable and extremely useful book . . . [Plimer] convincingly criticizes the UN, the IPCC, U.K. and U.S. politicians, as well as Hollywood show business celebrities. He strictly distinguishes science from environmental activism, politics, and opportunism."—Vaclav Klaus, President, The European Union
