“Global Warming for Dummies,” a guide which claims to “sort out fact from fiction” about so-called global climate change, in reality contains numerous biased statements – in some cases advocating the censorship of opinions which differ from those of the authors.
The guide, authored by Elizabeth May of the Green Party of Canada and Zoë Caron of the Sierra Club of Canada, suggests a wide range of personal and government solutions to climate change. They take positions on tax policy, transportation policy, and population growth while dismissing opposing arguments and telling readers to avoid works produced by global warming skeptics.
One passage, on page 68, seems to indicate a necessity to reduce fertility among the world’s women – and that empowered women will naturally have fewer children.
“Luckily, population growth is slowing and should level off,” the book says. However, on the same page, May and Caron claim that: “It all depends on reducing fertility rates, which all depends on improving the economic, educational, and political status of women.”
