    I bet Crichton is ROFLHAO....

    I read [ame="http://www.amazon.com/State-Fear-Michael-Crichton/dp/0061782661/ref=sr_1_3?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1261142508&sr=1-3"]this Fiction[/ame] before the Climategate Emails revealed the Conspiracy to Fabricate Science.

    If you haven't read State of Fear, then now would be terrific timing.

    I read this last summer after running across it at a used book store. Bought it just because Crichton wrote it without knowing anything about the story. He is a more than reliable story teller .

    As usual, the man was ahead of the curve.

    It's a great prophetic book given today's events, that Warmers manipulated the data

    ,

    Yeah, that's why I picked it up too.

    I really wish Fox or someone would wake up and interview him about his feelings regarding Warmergate.

    Maybe I should send them an email?:tongue:

    In "State of Fear" the Warmers were manipulating the data too

    Shoot, I forgot because his latest publication, Pirate Latitudes, was recently published......well, this sucks.

    Maybe his editor could do the interview.

    Yes, I'm glad you added this.

    all i know is it's freezing in amsterdam and my flight to london this morning got cancelled with gatwick closed due to snow. gordon brown must have a nagging suspicion he's been shoveling bullshit over 'warming'.

    It's a damn good read. Crichton is sorely missed.
