LOCAL REVIEW – ‘State of Fear’ By Michael Crichton

“Wow, you have got to read this book,” said Ellen as she finished the last page. “Its about global warming and eco-terrorism, some of your favorite subjects.” I had given her the book for Christmas, because Michael Crichton is one of her favorite authors. “State of Fear “is a techno political thriller that provides insight into how eco-terrorists operate, how they are funded, and how they use the press to push their hoaxes on the public. In this case, the hoax is global warming, which is currently being used by eco-terrorists to harm the economies of industrialized nations.

This unique novel includes an 18-page reference section and a five-page policy statement outlining what Crichton learned while writing the book. “Nobody knows how much warming will occur in the next century.”

“State of Fear” is great storytelling for those who would never read a science book and a great way for nonscientists to learn about the global warming hoax and those who are promoting it. This is not a perfect book; the reference section leaves out key documents, and both sides of issues are not fully addressed. And yes, I really enjoyed this fast-paced book.
