Ian Plimer, twice winner of Australia's highest scientific honor, the Eureka Prize, is professor in the School of Earth and Environmental Sciences at The University of Adelaide and is author of six other books written for the general public in addition to more than 120 scientific papers.
This is a very powerful, clear, understandable and extremely useful book . . . [Plimer] convincingly criticizes the UN, the IPCC, U.K. and U.S. politicians, as well as Hollywood show business celebrities. He strictly distinguishes science from environmental activism, politics, and opportunism.

... a damning critique of the 'evidence' underpinning man-made global warming.
— Kimberley A. Strassel; The Wall Street Journal
...a brilliantly argued book... Heaven and Earth is an evidence-based attack on conformity and orthodoxy, including my own, and a reminder to respect informed dissent and beware of ideology subverting evidence.
— Paul Sheehan; Sydney Morning Herald
...the best book on science and scientists I have ever read.
— Andrew Alexander; Daily Mail (UK), (Uk)
Only a geological perspective can provide a proper view of climate change. Professor Plimer's book does a masterful job of demonstrating that Nature rules the climate, not human activity.
— S. Fred Singer, Professor Emeritus of Environmental Sciences, University of Virginia
...[A] wonderfully comprehensive and fearless book... If there are any willing to hear some truly inconvenient truths on the stampeding advocacy of global warming, Mr. Plimer's book is a collection of some of the sternest.
— The Globe and Mail
...[A]rguably no one is more responsible for the shift in opinion than University of Adelaide geologist Ian Plimer, whose new book Heaven and Earth: Global Warming, the Missing Science is an authoritative scientific refutation of the claims of human-caused global warming.
…a bible for climate change skeptics.
— Financial Times
For those who want to take a thinking approach to global warming untainted by politics or faith, Heaven and Earth is a worthwhile consideration.
