Présentation de l'éditeur

British author James Delingpole tells the shocking story of how an unholy mix of junk science, green hype, corporate greed and political opportunism led to the biggest - and most expensive - outbreak of mass hysteria in history.

In Watermelons, Delingpole explains the Climategate scandal, the cast of characters involved, their motives and methods. He delves into the background of the organizations and individuals who have sought to push global warming to the top of the political agenda, showing that beneath their cloak of green lurks a heart of red.

Watermelons shows how the scientific method has been sacrificed on the altar of climate alarmism. Delingpole mocks the green movement's pathetic record of apocalyptic predictions, from the "population bomb" to global cooling, which failed to materialize. He reveals the fundamental misanthropy of green ideology, "rooted in hatred of the human species, hell bent on destroying almost everything man has achieved".

Delingpole gives a refreshing voice to widespread public skepticism over global warming, emphasising that the "crisis" has been engineered by people seeking to control our lives by imposing new taxes and regulations. "Your taxes will be raised, your liberties curtailed and your money squandered to deal with this 'crisis'", he writes.

At its very roots, argues Delingpole, climate change is an ideological battle, not a scientific one. Green on the outside, red on the inside, the liberty-loathing, humanity-hating "watermelons" of the modern environmental movement do not want to save the world. They want to rule it.

Delingpole is the bestselling British writer who helped expose the Climategate scandal in his Daily Telegraph blog. He also writes a column for The Spectator . His other books include 365 Ways to Drive a Liberal Crazy (Regnery, 2010) and Welcome to Obamaland (Regnery, 2009).

You need talent and anger to take on one of the century's most egregious scams, and James Delingpole has both, with a healthy leavening of humour. "Watermelons" are today's Greens - red inside, they are the same people who a quarter century ago protested across Europe in support of the Soviet regime. Then as now, they posed as the self-evident voices of the Good and the True, and with their fellow-travellers in the media, they belittled their opponents rather than answer their arguments. Today's climate change high priests and tricksters (hockey-stick graph, anyone?) are trying to pull the same number again. This book shows them up, which is why they hate it. It exposes them well, lucidly, and amusingly, too. No wonder they are foaming at the mouth when it is brought up. A great read.

Bon à savoir combiern nous sommes "enfumés" par les escrologues de tous poils. Cette lecture venait à point car le GIEC vient finalement de reconnaître que le "réchauffement climatique" n'existe pas et que les chiffres avancés étaient erronés. Evidemment, les escrologues ont trouvé un autre terme, c'est maintenant un "déréglement" climatique. Pour continuner à nous enfumer.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Clarion Call to Sanity 22 juillet 2011
Par Trendyphobe - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
Prior to reading Mr. Delingpole's new book, I believed that the anthropogenic climate change industry was a multi-billion dollar scam. Watermelons proved me wrong. It's a multi-trillion dollar scam.

With only a couple of semi-passionate assertions, Mr. Delingpole is extremely respectful of the reader - "warmists" and skeptics alike.

The reader will be able to decide if Michael Crichton was right when, in 2003 he wrote, "There is no such thing as consensus science. If it's consensus, it isn't science. If it's science, it isn't consensus. Period."

Do you know what Agenda 21 is? Are you aware of the significance of what Paul Ehrlich predicted in his 1968 bestseller, The Population Bomb? Are you familiar with what's happened in Denmark as a consequence of Climatism? Why did Climategate not enlighten people?

Such questions and a multitude of similarly thought-provoking issues are explored in this stimulating and eye-opening book.

Watermelons is a clarion call to sanity.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A critically important book 12 août 2011
Par Geoff Puterbaugh - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
James Delingpole, a popular conservative writer in the UK, has written one of the most important books of our time. I surmise that he was always something of an AGW skeptic, but when Climategate came around, he selflessly abandoned himself to the cause of rooting out AGW and its hacks.

AGW = "Anthropogenic Global Warming." Don't be intimidated. It just means "Man-Made Global Warming," which could be abbreviated as MMGW. And it's a crock, folks. It's an absolute crock. It has been defended and promoted by a group of seedy men, including a large crowd at the UN --- and, if you haven't noticed that the UN has been trying to get a lot bigger than its britches, transforming itself from a forum for discussion into a Global Legislator (a la EU), then I don't think you're very observant. AGW was a big push by the UN bureaucrats (and their wannabes) to put the UN on top of the world, dictating to the lowly peasants what they should and should not do --- all of this without being elected, just like the (ho ho) "President of Europe."

Where do we go to vote these creeps out of office? Nowhere! Welcome to 21st century democracy, "a la Europe."

As for AGW (or MMGW), that continues to be one of the most embarrassing theories ever put forward by scientists. There is no evidence at all to support it, although bloviating politicians such as Al Gore think it's the gospel truth (and are expecting to make billions once they have suckered you and me into believing them). The main idea is "carbon credits," by which companies which actually make stuff have to buy "carbon credits" from people who don't do anything but gaze at the South American jungles. It's a really crazy-weird attempt to make megabucks off the fact that humans breathe in oxygen and breathe out carbon dioxide, while plants breathe in carbon dioxide and breathe out oxygen. Therefore, MORE carbon dioxide makes for MORE plants and jungles, which make MORE oxygen for us and other animals.

The tiny helpless "environmental" group known as the World Wildlife Foundation recently tried to scoop up SIXTY BILLION DOLLARS from its claims on Brazilian jungles. When you see figures like 60 billion, you should be aware that WWF and Greenpeace are not "helpless tiny" movements. They are competing in the same space as Big Oil and all their "enemies," and they need to be called out as "Big Green" and asked just what they are doing for the cause of conservation.

James Delingpole deserves many literary prizes for detailing all of the crimes committed by the AGW folks: suppressing evidence they don't like, assassinating the reputations of scientists they don't like, censoring the "scientific literature" --- really, the list goes on and on, and...


"Nazi Germany took a stronger approach to pushing eco-ideology. It was the first nation to ban smoking on public transport (Hitler thought it a filthy habit: tobacco, he believed, was "the wrath of the Red Man against the White man, vengeance for having been given hard liquor"). It was also the first to take the concept of "animal rights" seriously (in 1933 Goering--ah, the big cuddly softie--said that anyone found guilty of animal cruelty or experimentation would be sent to the concentration camps)."

"Our teeming population is the strongest evidence our numbers are burdensome to the world, which can hardly support us from its natural elements. Our wants grow more and more keen and our complaints more bitter in all mouths, while nature fails in affording us our usual sustenance. In every deed, pestilence and famine and wars have to be regarded as a remedy for nations as the means of pruning the luxuriance of the human race."

No, not Paul Ehrlich 1968. Nor the Prince of Wales 2010. This was the utterance of Carthaginian priest Tertullian in his "Treatise of the Soul" in 210 AD, when the world's population was a mere 250 million. Since then it has grown to over 6.5 billion. Frankly, which planet would you rather inhabit? Tertullian's blissfully uncrowded car-free zone? Or our current congested hell of long life-expectancies, modern dental care, paid holidays, iPods, contraception, literacy and penicillin?"

5.0 étoiles sur 5 enlightening launchpad for those who question global warming 30 août 2011
Par R. Berg - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
While I think the author tries a little too hard to be 'entertaining' with the insertion of numerous clever analogies/metaphors, the basic premise of the book; that the current narrative propagated by the media establishment and government bureaucracy has far more to do with control(money) and protecting the ivory towers of powerful policy makers, BIG-eco-business, and self-serving academia.

I like that the author recounts actual events as they happened, points fingers, and names the actual players involved - this has served as an invaluable resource for me in continuing my own research on the internet and in reading other authors' works. I encourage any and all to read this book if you question the media's blind acceptance of 'climate change', the scare tactics of leftist BIG-eco, and how the promise of power and money have corrupted the science behind it.

Needless to say, man's influence on the natural flux of our climate has been GROSSLY overstated in our media and serves as a perfect example of how leftist ideology controls much of the media/academia we've been told(programmed) to believe is neutral and unbiased.

Again, I encourage you to read this book as it will serve as a launch-pad for further study of the issue, after which your only conclusion can be a that we, the world, have been duped and continue to be on so many issues - climate change, academia, media bias, scientific study, government, power, monetary policy, liberty, freedom,...etc.

I won't be surprised that in 20 years we'll look back at the issue of "Climate Change" and "Global Warming" as the beginning-of-the-end for leftist control of our media and academia as there is no dearth of evidence of the control exerted by leftist special interests, the power they seek, and the lengths they are willing to go; a total corruption of scientific process to promote their agenda.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 An Explanation of the Recalcitrance 14 novembre 2011
Par B. Hutchins - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Admittedly the AGW "alarmists" (at all skill levels of intellect and education), are having some bad times. For one thing, any warming at all was never unprecedented (and it has recently slowed and probably reversed). Then there was "climategate". In recent years, the public at large has lost nearly all interest in the AGW claims, and places it last among their listing of personal concerns. Endless problems in the AGW camp.

And clearly the scientific evidence for dangerous, CO2-caused, AGW has declined (not even a correlation for one thing). This fact would cause most honest observers to revise their conclusions. But clearly a core of the official (paid) "climate scientists" - i.e., the co-called consensus - and their less esteemed myrmidons remain recalcitrant, in specter if no longer in numbers, out of all proportion. Why?

In opposition to the AGW agenda we have those persons who may be called "climate rationalists" ("deniers" by their detractors), who have come to wonder about the thinking processes (or lack thereof) of the alarmists. Why are some of the alarmists NOT modifying their views - ever, for any reason? Why is there not at least some measure of joy in the news that the disaster they were fervently anticipating is apparently not going to happen? From whence comes their apparent disappointment?

Sure, there will always be hard-core hangers-on to lost causes such as "911 truth" and "cold fusion". And clearly many professionals have a vested interest in, or at least a subsurface attraction to, AGW for reasons of employment or financial opportunity - regardless of realities and practicalities. And there are some people with no expertise who are merely incorrigible, and have no capability for independent thoughts anyway. But - does anyone WANT a climate disaster? I bet not many. So likewise, are we willing to bet that few if any people would want a political agenda that would bankrupt and starve the people and nations of the world?

Here James Delingpole has written what is really two books, or so it seems to me. The first, Chapters 1-6 seems to be the Delingpole of the Telegraph Blog. It is all excellent stuff and well presented and documented. Perhaps he wanted to establish his bona fides for those who have not already been reading him.

The second book, Chapters 7-11, which begins with the "watermelons" chapter, is disquieting, as it presents the case (as others have done before, but perhaps not as declaratively) that the answer to my question just above the line of stars is: DON'T MAKE THAT BET. There is a green agenda that supersedes all other issues, particularly scientific truths. Among the proponents of AGW, Climate Change, Extreme Weather Events, or other OSTENSIBLY environmental issues are those for whom these issues are merely tools to a leftist program. And these are not just preferences, but desires felt to the bone. Regardless of truth or consequences, the issues are either useful tools to be brandished, or inconvenient distractions to be ignored. The agenda is anti-industrial, even misanthropic to an extreme. Delingpole makes a strong and convincing case. And he says it outright as he does everything he writes. Warning taken.

Those persons in the AGW and related camps, who are of a more benevolent persuasion with regard to the human race as a whole, would be wise to look around and see with whom they are in bed.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Orwell could only dream... 10 septembre 2011
Par burgess - Publié sur Amazon.com

It's all here - Climategate, the junk "climate science," the dirty politics, all delivered with intelligence and wit. It was Delingpole's blog that sent the Climategate scandal viral, so he's able to give a blow-by-blow account. He's also got the science down. I've followed the science closely since the late 80's (I've got a PhD. in Earth Science and make my living modeling the lithosphere). Delingpole does an excellent job of cutting through he jargon and presenting the essentials. But where the book really shines is exposing the politics behind this manufactured crisis.

Delingpole has done a great job of peeling back the eye-watering layers of alphabet bureaucracies, mostly connected to the UN, and showing how they are subverting/co-opting our democratic institutions in the name of "sustainable development," "smart growth," and "biodiversity."

What doublespeak. Orwell could only dream. They're not talking about sustaining anything you'd recognize, and they sure don't want to see development. "smart growth"? hint: it ain't smart and it ain't growth.

I hesitate to call it a conspiracy. It's more a confluence of mutual interests among international bureaucrats, megalomaniacal politicians, wealthy dilettantes, and feel-good celebrities. Read Watermelons and find out what a serious threat the "green movement" has become.

P.S. It's hard to believe that J. Rice (see one negative review) has even read the book when he says, "The author doesn't seem to have any conception of the complexities and layers of the modern environmental movement." The complexities and layers of the modern environmentalism is precisely what most of the book is about. The author is very much for protecting natural beauty and spends most of his free time wild-water swimming and enjoying the Welch countryside with his family.
