"It's all a commie plot!"

Man, I'd pay good money to hear Al Gore, David Suzuki, or one of the other gorbal warmening crazies pop off with that line in public. Wouldn't it be deliciously ironic if the First World's economy, built as it is on cheap energy from coal & petroleum, were saved by a KGBFSB covert op aimed at hacking the databases of the AGW conspirators? Dan Riehl points out that the Russians certainly have an incentive to torpedo this latest environmental stupidity.

While we're on the subject of scientific illiteracy and the climate, may I recommend to you Fallen Angels?

Fallen Angels - one of the authors was larry niven.

Read this book many moons and cheesburgers ago, liked it. Was just realizing I dont think Niven ever puts out a bad book.

I didn't think Destiny's Road or The Integral Trees and its sequel were that great, myself, but YMMV. Pournelle, on the other hand, has hd some really good collaborations with other authors as well as Niven, and Michael Flynn is very worth looking into if you haven't read any of his stuff already.
