I've been reading State of Fear and am almost done with it. I'm sure that Crichton has references in the back of the book that I can go through and I may be able to find some articles here and there that treat his treatment of the topic of Global Warming. I was wondering if anyone here has anything to say about the book and if you have any links to good rebuttals. Crichton obviously has the tendency to thrillerize the topics he writes about so I am not really interested in discussions regarding the manner in which he portrays environmental activists as outright terrorists and terrorist supporters. I would also agree that the condecending manner in which he submits anti global warming theories through out the novel and the negative characterizations of environmental activists are rather juvenile. This has more to do with quality of writing though. If you want to discuss his writing ability I am game but please don't make bad writing into a point against veracity of fact. I would like to focus on facts and what Crichton got right, got wrong, or took out of context. Did he cherry pick data? Did he utilize dubious sources? Did he misrepresent/interpret facts? If you have read this book Andre I would be interested in your take. If you have not then I would not suggest the book as good reading material. Its pretty weak even for Crichton.
