A library has refused to shelve Gregory Wrightstone’s best-selling book Inconvenient Facts — The Science Al Gore Doesn’t Want You to Know, despite his being one of Northland Public Library’s own local authors!
Bias and censorship in schools, universities and the media have become massive problems. Apparently libraries are not immune.
Climate censors don’t fear misleading information from climate skeptics. They fear the straight facts that debunk Team Warming’s own campaign of exaggerations, deceptions and outright lies.
Gordon Tomb edited Wrightstone’s book. We posted his report at CFACT.org:
Apparently in defense of climate orthodoxy, the Northland Public Library of suburban Pittsburgh has banned from its shelves a best-selling book by a nationally recognized local author.
In a May 29 letter to local author Gregory Wrightstone, library executive director Amy Steele said a committee of three librarians had “concluded your book does not meet our standards.”
The book, “Inconvenient Facts: The Science That Al Gore Doesn’t Want You To Know,” disputes claims that global warming is largely a man-made phenomenon threatening the health of people and the environment. Asserting that current temperatures are neither unusual nor unprecedented, the book describes carbon dioxide as a “miracle molecule” whose increased levels have benefitted plants and made Earth greener.
The book has received rave reviews from readers, including respected scientists. Sales of the book have skyrocketed in recent months, reaching as high as #10 in overall Amazon sales as recently as March and #1 in sales in five categories.
Imagine a court system where only the prosecution is allowed to present its evidence. Soviet Russia worked that way. You can face that kind of “justice” in countries like China or Iran today.
The unimpeded exchange of information is vital to the functioning of a free society.
If the deluge of climate alarm we encounter every day in the media would hold up to critical scrutiny, warming campaigners would have nothing to fear.
It doesn’t. That terrifies them. That’s why they want to shut Gregory Wrightstone up.
