Quaternary Research editor Eric Steig's latest RealClimate post acquits Six Degrees author Mark Lynas of 'Alarmism.' You know--scenes of 20 foot sea level rise, out-takes from The Day After Tomorrow, that sort of thing.
I don't suppose he's looked at the self-advertising on Lynas's website, which features this splendid vista of London --St. Paul's cathedral is 365 feet high:
" SIX DEGREES: OUR FUTURE ON A HOTTER PLANET
... reveals why the western US, southern Europe and Australia are likely to become uninhabitable"
ANOTHER FORECAST FROM LYNAS ' WEBSITE:
High Tide –the acclaimed first book to tell the climate change story for a popular audience
"A glacier disappears high in the Peruvian Andes. Floodwaters surge across the English countryside. Ten thousand Pacific islanders begin to evacuate their homeland. A duststorm turns day into night across the Inner Mongolian plains.
...In this ground-breaking book, author Mark Lynas reveals... how global warming is hitting people’s lives, not in the future, but in our world today."
