Heaven and Earth (book)
Heaven and Earth: Global Warming – The Missing Science is a popular science book published in 2009 and written by Australian geologist, professor of mining geology at Adelaide University, and mining company director Ian Plimer. It disputes the scientific consensus on climate change, including the view that global warming is ""very likely due to the observed increase in anthropogenic (man-made) greenhouse gas concentrations"" and asserts that the debate is being driven by what the author regards as irrational and unscientific elements.The book received what The Age newspaper called ""glowing endorsements"" from the conservative press. The Australian said it gave ""all the scientific ammunition climate change skeptics could want."" Other reviewers criticised the book as unscientific, inaccurate, based on obsolete research, and internally inconsistent. Ideas in it have been described as ""so wrong as to be laughable"".Heaven and Earth was a bestseller in Australia when published in May 2009, and is in its seventh printing, according to the publisher. The book has also been published in the United States and the United Kingdom.
