A note on the Amazon ads: I've chosen to display current events titles in the Amazon box. Unfortunately, Amazon appears to promote a disproportionate number of angry-left books. I have no power over it at this time. Rest assured, I'm still a conservative.

Not a bad read: I finished Michael Crichton's latest novel, "State of Fear," a couple of weeks ago. It's certainly not Crichton's best work, it's not going to win any awards, but it's an entertaining read with a message: global warming -- as it is presented by many in the scientific community -- is bunk.

If you want to find out about the real state of the global climate, then this is probably the most reader-friendly method. Crichton presents the science in the course of a breakneck narrative as the characters work to halt envirowackos plan to "create" "evidence" of global warming.

My favorite moment in the story is when a very wealthy woman environmentalist defends her use of greenhouse gas-producing corporate jets against charges of hypocrisy. The socialite says she only rides on those jets "because they're going there anyway." Some talk radio listeners will recall that that was liberal commentator Arianna Huffington's defense of the practice to Sean Hannity -- one that he replays regularly.
