His close reading of Lomborg's textual claims and supporting documentation reveals a lengthy list of findings that will rock climate skeptics and their allies in the government and news media, demonstrating that the published peer-reviewed climate science, as assessed mainly by the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, has had it mostly right--even if somewhat conservatively right--all along. Friel's able defense of Al Gore's An Inconvenient Truth against Lomborg's repeated attacks is by itself worth an attentive reading. --Publisher's description."@en ;
