One of the best books I've read by Michael Crichton. Very well researched and controvercial in that it actually opposes the Global Warming alarmist point of view. Science can explain many things, the problem is that science is conducted by human beings who are prone to many faults like greed, corruption, selfishness, and the like. Very thought provoking and action packed book, surprised that this has not been made into a movie yet.
