Global Warming Denier Micheal Crichton Dead at 66.
Crichton is best remembered for his novels most notably Jurassic Park and Andromeda Strain. However, I will remember him best for his Anti-Environmentalist Rant: State of Fear. In the book Crichton uses pseudo-science to challenge the scientific consensus that humans are causing global warming.
Crichton uses the book to push his radical right wing agenda and sermonize about the evils of environmentalists.
For a great review of the book check here. And for a debunking of the book by actual scientists check here and here.
Farewell Crichton. I'm sure one day soon the Christian Right will be using Jurassic Park as "Evidence" that Humans and Dinosaurs walked the Earth together. Your place in the anti-science right wingers hall of fame is secure.
