Anyway, my husband had listened to this book on CD while driving, and really enjoyed it, so I picked it off the shelf. First is the widespread use of anecdotal reasoning.

What the book is really about is the politicization of science and the manipulation even if unintentional of scientific information. He is always very melodramatic about anything and everything when it comes to the environment. In his afterword, Crichton states that he believes global warming is a real concern.

State of Fear by Michael Crichton 10 42 Aug 04, He did not, although he did introduce other crichtob with which I agreed with his perspective, even though he was often just as poorly-informed on these subjects as he was on global warming. State of Fear is, like many of Crichton’s books, a fictional work that uses a mix of speculation and real world data, plus technological innovations as fundamental storyline devices. In particular, Crichton delves into how global warming research is shaped by political agendas bo Michael Crichton continues to impress with both his story telling and with his researching capabilities.

From personal experience gained over 35 years in conservation circles, dealing with scientists, dreamers and schemers from the highest to the lowest order, as well as ordinary people living in the wilderness, I agree with most of the book!

I am not interested in the scientific data used in the book, which is the main focus of the anti-establishment opponents to the book. Not only are the politics deplorable it’s about a group of eco-terrorists who induce fake desasters to back up their false claims of global warmingit’s also shoddily written.

Dr Crichton delivers his usual competent tour through a scientific realm, mixing a decent amount of action and suspense with actual facts. Sometimes, we also use crkchton cookie to keep track of your trolley contents. State of Fear is meant to push the reader to consider that his or her position on global warming may be based on faulty research and political ideology rather than scientific fact.

Look at the reviews for this book! I was actually amazed and surprised by the information used in the book. The group has a final confrontation with the elite ELF team on the island during which Haynes is almost killed, and Evans kills one of the terrorists who had previously tried to kill both him and Jones in Antarctica.

The latter is such a well-kept ‘secret’ in the world, current generations will obviously stagger in horror to learn more about it. Jan 28, Mike rated it really liked it Recommends it for: Oct 16, Ann rated it really liked it Shelves: I just thought Crichton was mediocre until I read this. The presentation of this award has been criticized as a promotion of the politics of the oil industry and for blurring the ccrichton between fiction and journalism. The book reads exceptionally fast for all the science and background explanation necessary.

One of the ‘good’ guys is John Kenner.

It happens, just reset it in a minute. Plus, since the chemical kills other animals as well, it kills off the natural predators of the mosquitoes, and since prey items always reproduce faster than their predator counterparts, populations of mosquitoes actually greatly increased in areas where DDT was crichtoon after a period of years.

The characters were great. The references can be tracked down easily and further reading about one subject or another can be easily found. The debate middo global warming serves as the backdrop for the book.

Prior to reading the novel I had arrived at medo similar outlook as Crichton’s, which is the skepticism that continues to grow as time reveals the errors of previous decades, but remains far from fashionable. I was involved with through such studies in the s and into the new century, and many of his opinions were ill-founded: This type of misinformation is what I’m constantly fighting against on a daily basis through my job. For instance and yes, I see the irony hereCrichton makes a big deal about how the warmest year on record in the US was What the Critics Said”.

He claimed to be a defender of the scientific method regarding an approach to the crises apparent in the world, yet there were obvious gaps in his knowledge. Do you enjoy seeing pompous, self-righteous jerks get their rightful comeuppance?

To those who disagree with Crichton on this issue, why do you think he came to the conclusions he did and what special interest would propel him to write this book?
