Readers of this blog will be well aware of Tim Worstall’s ability to cut through muddled thinking and write clearly about the real solutions to the world's problems. Tim has been particularly strong writing about the politics of global warming, and next week will be launching his new book on the subject, Chasing Rainbows. The book takes on the global warming alarmists on their own terms, accepting the IPPC’s science, and uses the logic of economics to argue that the ends that environmentalists want is best achieved through more globalization and freer markets, not government interventions like cap-and-trade.

The book is thought-provoking and laugh-out-loud funny – from Tim, you’d expect nothing less – and comes with recommendations from Matt Ridley (author of the Rational Optimist), Madsen Pirie, and Tim Harford, the Undercover Economist. I’m happy to say that Tim has allowed us to give ASI Blog readers the book’s full introduction to download, so you can see for yourself. The download is available here, and you can pre-order the book at Amazon (at 20% off) here.

The book launch will be held this Tuesday November 30th. For full details, see here.
