I've been overwhelmed with other things, but hope to be back posting regularly soon. In the meantime, Michael Crichton listed 5 books that "question the conventional wisdom on the environment" in an editorial in yesterday's WSJ. The five books are:
1. "Playing God in Yellowstone" by Alston Chase (Atlantic Monthly Press, 1986).
2. "The Culture Cult" by Roger Sandall (Westview, 2001).
3. "Man and the Natural World" by Keith Thomas (Oxford, 1984).
4. "The Skeptical Environmentalist" by Bjørn Lomborg (Cambridge University Press, 2002).
5. "The Logic of Failure" by Dietrich Dörner (Perseus, 1998).
If readers here have read any of these books, please feel free to post comments on their value and whether or not they're worth buying.
