False Alarm Summary:

The New York Times-bestselling "skeptical environmentalist" argues that panic over climate change is causing more harm than good Hurricanes batter our coasts. Wildfires rage across the American West. Glaciers collapse in the Artic. Politicians, activists, and the media espouse a common message: climate change is destroying the planet, and we must take drastic action immediately to stop it. Children panic about their future, and adults wonder if it is even ethical to bring new life into the world. Enough, argues bestselling author Bjorn Lomborg. Climate change is real, but it's not the apocalyptic threat that we've been told it is. Projections of Earth's imminent demise are based on bad science and even worse economics. In panic, world leaders have committed to wildly expensive but largely ineffective policies that hamper growth and crowd out more pressing investments in human capital, from immunization to education. False Alarm will convince you that everything you think about climate change is wrong -- and points the way toward making the world a vastly better, if slightly warmer, place for us all.

False Alarm Summary:

This book uses case studies to show how and why eight social service organizations adopted computers. Computerized information systems can be destructive or constructive for organizations and staff. However, the impact of a system cannot be predicted from its logical design alone: one must analyze how well the design fits the needs, interests, and existing practices of those who are likely to use it.

False Alarm Summary:

False Alarm is for the concerned citizen who wants to learn all sides of the climate change issue, not just that of the global warming alarmists who currently dominate the media. We, the public, are told the science on global warming is "settled," "certain," and beyond debate or discussion: The planet is warming, humans are the main reason, and the results will be catastrophic. In fact, as the climate alarmists know full well but do not wish the public to know, the planet isn't warming right now and hasn't since the late 1990s. How can humans be primarily responsible for warming that isn't occurring? And there is no empirical evidence at all to indicate that if the planet does begin to warm again, the results will be disastrous - the outcome may even be a greener planet since carbon dioxide acts as a fertilizer. The only evidence for impending catastrophe exists in computer models. In fact, as this book shows, global warming alarmism is based more on politics, environmentalist beliefs, and psychological groupthink than on science. "This is a wonderful book - and just in time. At this historically crucial juncture when global policy depends on science, and most writers and reporters meekly accept establishment science as revealed truth, MacRae resurrects investigative reporting. Whether you are committed to combating global warming or you are a skeptic, this book will show you things you did not know, and give you much to think about." -- Dr. Jeffrey Foss, philosopher of science, University of Victoria About the Author, Paul MacRae Paul MacRae began his newspaper career in 1967 with the University of Toronto "Varsity" and has worked as an editor and reporter for The Canadian Press, "The Toronto Star, The Bangkok Post" and "The Globe and Mail, " and as an editorial writer and weekly columnist for the Victoria "Times Colonist."

Apocalypse Never Summary:

Now a National Bestseller! Climate change is real but it’s not the end of the world. It is not even our most serious environmental problem. Michael Shellenberger has been fighting for a greener planet for decades. He helped save the world’s last unprotected redwoods. He co-created the predecessor to today’s Green New Deal. And he led a successful effort by climate scientists and activists to keep nuclear plants operating, preventing a spike of emissions. But in 2019, as some claimed “billions of people are going to die,” contributing to rising anxiety, including among adolescents, Shellenberger decided that, as a lifelong environmental activist, leading energy expert, and father of a teenage daughter, he needed to speak out to separate science from fiction. Despite decades of news media attention, many remain ignorant of basic facts. Carbon emissions peaked and have been declining in most developed nations for over a decade. Deaths from extreme weather, even in poor nations, declined 80 percent over the last four decades. And the risk of Earth warming to very high temperatures is increasingly unlikely thanks to slowing population growth and abundant natural gas. Curiously, the people who are the most alarmist about the problems also tend to oppose the obvious solutions. What’s really behind the rise of apocalyptic environmentalism? There are powerful financial interests. There are desires for status and power. But most of all there is a desire among supposedly secular people for transcendence. This spiritual impulse can be natural and healthy. But in preaching fear without love, and guilt without redemption, the new religion is failing to satisfy our deepest psychological and existential needs.

Yuzi s False Alarm Summary:

Bestselling author Dannah Gresh teams up with three of her closest friends to write a hilarious fiction series about what their lives would have been like had they collided in sixth grade. Yuzi Ukachi has every right to be mad. Because of her dad's job, their family has moved all over the place, so it's always been tough to make friends. And now his job has landed Yuzi in quite possibly the smallest town on the planet: Marion, Ohio—the Popcorn Capital of the World. Her mom volunteered her to wear a totally embarrassing corncob costume to the Popcorn Festival, and at school she ends up in detention for something she definitely did not do! When she opens up her heart to the three girls she meets in detention, she's invited into the True Girl Club. The club's adventures teach her that revenge isn't always the sweetest end to a story. Dannah, Suzy Wiebel, Janet Mylin, and Chizuruoke (Chizzy) Anderson are four mothers with hearts to teach their daughters truth, but they aren't afraid of the crazy true stories of their own lives. Here they blend them into fictional comedy and action that 8–12-year-old readers will love.
