Introduction: Chasing Rainbows, by Tim Worstall

Type: Think PiecesWritten by Tim Worstall | Tuesday 30 November 2010

In this extract from his new book, Chasing Rainbows, Tim Worstall fires a broadside against the environmentalist lobby and argues that the conventional 'solutions' to climate change don't even meet the environmentalists' own standards and defy their own advice. The book takes on the global warming alarmists on their own terms by accepting the IPPC’s science and using logic and 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.
