I was surprised (and dissapointed) by that as well :-(

I presume that Elsevier concluded it could make money by doing so.

Given the large number of anti-climate science books already published, is one more going to have a huge impact?

It does have a nicely Photoshopped image on the front cover, so it MUST be true!

The colors of the globe seem a little weird to me.

and who would pay almost 120.00 for stuff like this?

I dunno about the colours of the globe being wrong. It looks like the oceans have some kind of algal bloom going on and the land is all desertified. ;-)

Who would pay $120 for this? University libraries, unfortunately.

We should instantly rebut it the second it is released. it will undoubtedly gain traction once it is out.

Elsevier has been involved in some strange actions recently.

I wonder how much attention it will get. In physics, books by Elsevier have very little impact, because they have traditionally been so expensive (and not very robustly constructed) that they're not good value for students. So they're read only by experts. But any climate expert who reads this book is going to throw it across the room.

It's going to get terrible reviews in all of the traditional venues for Elsevier books: scholarly journals. I think it will be a big embarassment for them.

Robert,

"We should instantly rebut it the second it is released."

I wonder whether we can be proactive and srtike before it is released...?   Otherwise we are just repsonding, this way we take the fight to them before hand...of course that is contingent on us accessing the material beforehand.

 

Neal, 

I hope that yo are right.  You are not very often wrong ;)

Remember that Velikovsky gained hugely from the protests.
