OTTAWA, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 15, 2009) - A new book CLIMATE COVER-UP will leave readers surprised and seething at the record of public manipulation - of staggering deceit and manufactured controversy. Climate Cover-Up: The Crusade to Deny Global Warming is about the perversion of science by public relations. It shows beyond doubt that the climate debate is a public relations creation.

WHAT?

In Climate Cover-Up, PR expert James Hoggan (with journalist Richard Littlemore) exactly how the cover up has been planned and executed. They document the early days of the cover-up campaign. They dig up the corporate strategy papers, analyze the tactics and expose the strategies. They point fingers and they name names.

Climate Cover-Up is a brisk, blood-boiling book, a shocking indictment of a global PR machine that is too often in the service of special interests and too little concerned about the public interest.

WHY?

It is critical that we understand when people are talking about science and when they are talking about greed, selfishness and inter-generational betrayal. This courageous book shows that the public controversy over climate change is bogus - an unsavoury invention by the same people who once got us to argue about the health effects of tobacco or the risks of asbestos, dioxin, or lead.

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING:

- "An expose of planetary scale" - James E. Hansen, director, NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies.

- "This book explains how the propaganda generated by self-interest groups has purposely created confusion about climate change. It's an imperative read for a successful future." Leonardo DiCaprio.

- "Forget the crime of the century - this probably qualifies as the crime of the geological epoch" - Bill McKibben, author of Deep Economy and The End of Nature.

- "A compelling, sometimes chilling explanation of how public safety has been sacrificed on the altar of private interest." - Chris Mooney, author of The Republican War on Science.

- "Climate Cover-Up documents one of the most disgusting stories ever hidden about corporate disinformation. What you'll discover in this book amounts to proof of an intergenerational crime." David Suzuki, author of The Sacred Balance and Good News for a Change.

- "Absolutely superb - one of the best dissections of the climate change information wars I have ever seen. This is one terrific piece of work!" Ross Gelbspan, author of The Heat is On.
