When James Hoggan heard the arguments of climate change deniers, he wasn't listening as a scientist or an environmentalist. For him, it was easy to hear the debate for what it was: A public relations campaign.

He explains:

I started to notice evidence of the campaign everywhere I looked...To a trained eye, the unsavory public relations tactics and techniques and the strategic media manipulation became obvious. The more I thought about it, the more deeply offended I became.

His new book, Climate Cover-Up, examines the campaign from this perspective and, as Good writes, "through meticulously documented analysis, lays out the deliberate, nefarious, and immoral campaign to manipulate the public discourse on climate change."
