Ross Gelbspan, anerkannter Wissenschaftsjournalist und Pulitzer-Preisträger, beschreibt nicht nur drastisch die Anzeichen der bevorstehenden Klimakatastrophe. Er macht darüber hinaus deutlich, wie eine kleine, von der Ölindustrie gesponserte Gruppe von "Greenhouse-Skeptikern" die wissenschaftlichen Zusammenhänge verschleiert, um wirtschaftliche Interessen durchzusetzen.

Aus wikipedia 2013
Ross Gelbspan is an American writer and activist. He has written two books relating to global warming: < The Heat Is On > (1997) and < Boiling Point > (2004).
The Heat Is On received national attention when President Bill Clinton told the press he was reading it. Boiling Point was the subject of the lead review in the Sunday New York Times Book Review. That review was written by former Vice President Al Gore. Gelbspan maintains the website heatisonline.org which he updates on a daily basis.
Prior to his involvement in the climate issue, Gelbspan worked as an editor and reporter at a number of newspapers, including The Philadelphia Bulletin, The Washington Post and the Boston Globe. At the Globe, he conceived, directed and edited a series of articles that won a Pulitzer Prize in 1984.
Since becoming involved in the climate issue, Gelbspan has delivered a number of lectures, radio and television interviews and has published multiple articles on the subject. He is a regular contributor on DeSmogBlog.
The Heat Is On
Bill McKibben wrote "Until you've read this book, you're ill-equipped to think about the planet's future." The New York Times Book Review said "No other reporter has told the story as comprehensively or explored its implications for human welfare as searchingly as Gelbspan" (quoted on cover of paperback edition of The Heat Is On).
A major theme of The Heat Is On is the treatment of the climate change issue in the U.S. Congress during the 90's.
Chapter 3 is entitled "A Congressional Book Burning." Gelbspan recounts numerous House and Senate hearings where Republican representatives and Senators focused on and endorsed the views of scientists who oppose the mainstream scientific assessment of global warming like Patrick Michaels, S. Fred Singer and Richard Lindzen.
