Join us and our special guest Dr. Patrick Moore as he discusses his new book Fake Invisible Catastrophes and Threats of Doom.
“It dawned on me one day that most of the scare stories in the media today are based on things that are invisible, like CO2, or very remote, like polar bears and coral reefs. Thus the average person cannot observe and verify the truth of these claims for themselves. They must rely on the activists, the media, the politicians, and the scientists – all of whom have huge financial and /or political interests in the subject – to tell them the truth. This book is my effort, after 50 years as an independent scientist and environmental activist, to expose the misinformation and outright lies used to scare us and our children about the future of the Earth.”
