  • The Real Global Warming Disaster

  • Is the Obsession with 'Climate Change' Turning Out to Be the Most Costly Scientific Blunder in History?

This original audiobook considers one of the most extraordinary scientific and political stories of our time: how in the 1980s a handful of scientists came to believe that mankind faced catastrophe from runaway global warming, and how today this has persuaded politicians to land us with what promises to be the biggest bill in history. Christopher Booker interweaves the science of global warming with that of its growing political consequences, showing how just when the politicians are threatening to change our Western way of life beyond recognition, the scientific evidence behind the global warming theory is being challenged like never before.

The book was kind of unclear. There's an old guy that lives in Virginia. Is self taught in the global warming, has signs and says the worse is to come. It's always politicians that know what they are saying when it's not like that.. They just go by the facts and not the truth in global warming. This man is smart and know all about the global warming.

The most fundamental questions about the origins of the universe and of life itself, once the province of philosophy, now occupy the territory where scientists, philosophers, and theologians meet—if only to disagree. In their new book, Stephen Hawking and Leonard Mlodinow present the most recent scientific thinking about the mysteries of the universe, in nontechnical language marked by both brilliance and simplicity.

It was a very good book. I didn't know some things I didn't know before. Now I know from reading this book. Doesn't believe in the bible and talks about no god. I wouldn't argue with the author. Smartest person.. Knows more physics , than anyone else. It seems like he could build his own rocket.

A dying man is murdered. A rich man's wife agrees to pay $3,000 for the return of a stolen box of rocks. A series of odd, inexplicable events is haunting Sergeant Jim Chee of the Navajo Tribal Police and drawing him alone into the Bad Country of the merciless Southwest, where nothing good can survive...including Chee. Because an assassin waits for him there, protecting a 30-year-old vision that greed has sired and blood has nourished. And only one man will walk away.

The book was very confusing and I did not understand the book. Maybe if I re read the book, I could understand it more.

Stuart Eizenstat was at Jimmy Carter’s side from his political rise in Georgia through four years in the White House, where he served as chief domestic policy adviser. He was directly involved in all domestic and economic decisions as well as in many foreign policy ones. Famous for the legal pads he took to every meeting, he draws on more than 7,500 pages of notes and 350 interviews of all the major figures of the time to write the comprehensive history of an underappreciated president - and to give an intimate view on how the presidency works.

If anybody reads this book, you won't be able to put the book down. Very interesting. Made more friends overseas than anyone. And also if he wants this his way, he will get it his way. Like the congressional libersl , he demands and they do it. If Carter was the president now we would be a very good country. I'm very satisfied with this book.

I was really excited about reading this book, because the way he talks on the news and public speaking. But it is way different, the public speaking to the nation. It is all negative and it's mean. I have no respect for people that talk to people in a negative way. He has a bully attitude, it's the same way with his speeches. He bullies everyone. And his favorite word is witch hunt lol

Homicide is always an abomination, but there is something exceptionally disturbing about the victim discovered in a high, lonely place: a corpse with a mouth full of sand, abandoned at a crime scene seemingly devoid of tracks or useful clues. Though it goes against his better judgment, Navajo tribal police lieutenant Joe Leaphorn cannot help but suspect the hand of a supernatural killer.

This book was a pretty good leisure book. I thought it was about a blessing, traditional way. It was not about any of that. It was about a navajo wolf, people tried to imitate being a wolf. That's why I dated the book three stars.
