Gregg Easterbrook, his reputation is similar to Bjorn Lomborg of whom wrote The Skeptical Environmentalist.
There are errors in his book and he sort of skrewed the intepretation of the data. Not that I am saying he lied but statistics could be presented in many ways.
However, I must admit, I haven't read Easterbrook but being a Green, I can't help but being aware of few global warming nay sayers.
or search for his book in Google. There are tons of stuff rebuffing his book. Even in Amazon, there are negative reviews on his book. Here is a further discussion against Easterbrook from an authority in geography and the environment:
He is one of the few that deviate from the general concensus that global warming is true. Furthermore, he is not an authority in meteological science. In fact, there is a book written by Environmental Defense simply to correct the errors made by Easterbrook.
The only reason he made it to public limelight is because he is a prominent journalist.
At the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), majority of the scientists from various fields agreed to one conclusion - global warming is real. Global warming is true - that's why Kyoto Protocol was first suggested by the IPCC back before the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio.
one point that needs to be cleared when talking about global warming is the difference between natural global warming and the accelerated global warming. We are facing the accelerated global warming.
