Watermelons : How Environmentalists are Killing the Planet, Destroying the Economy and Stealing Your Children's Future
If global warming isn't real then how come the ice caps are melting? Why would all the world's top scientists lie to us? What exactly is so wrong with biofuels, wind farms, carbon taxes, sustainability and preserving scarce resources for future generations? And what about Bangladesh, the drowning Maldives and all those endangered polar bears? James Delingpole has all the answers - and they're not the ones Al Gore would like you to hear. In Watermelons, Delingpole tells the shocking true story of how a handful of political activists, green campaigners and voodoo scientists engineered the world's biggest, most expensive and destructive outbreak of mass hysteria - one that threatens the very fabric of Western civilisation. As the world stands on the brink of a new Great Depression, Delingpole's message could not be more timely or urgent. In order to save our planet must we really surrender to the green movement's misanthropic tyranny? Or might there be a better way?

Did Delingpole's book convince me to come down on his side of the argument? No, but it did unsettle me, shake me out of my complacency and make me question my own views. What more could any polemicist ask for? Mail on Sunday An entertaining broadside from the arch-contrarian. Metro Do not be deceived by his sometimes flippant and always highly readable prose. This is a serious and significant book. Matt Ridley, The Spectator A polemic, an analysis, an enormously valuable, well-researched and referenced resource. Roger Helmer MEP Delingpole is a brilliantly funny and entertaining writer. Daniel Hannan MEP
