SPLASH: The Chicken Little Agenda hits #5 on Amazon.com!

Medved Says...

Simultaneously entertaining, enlightening and important—a much-needed antidote to the prevailing plague of desperate (and often groundless) pessimism.

Fair disclosure: Chicken Little’s author is my dad.

If you’ve had a son, though—or been one—you’ll appreciate that an endorsement from this direction is by no means a guarantee. Still, I can’t help it: I’m impressed.

My dad’s been writing this book for most of my life. He and I have been around the block once or twice on many of the issues between its covers, and I was pleased to find that the lessons I learned along the way about the real world—you know, this big rock we all live on—translate well into print.

The fundamental thesis here is that there’s a real world out there if you’re willing to ignore the spin-doctors and go look for it. It’s a place whose attributes are measurable, consistent, and—brace yourself—rather encouraging!

I’d recommend my dad’s book to anybody who professes to have an open mind. Will you agree with everything he has to say? Maybe not. But since his point is that assertions can be checked, give it a try.

Odds are you’ll be pleasantly surprised.

The Chicken Little Agenda is loosely organized around seventy columns in the Thrawn Rickle series the author originally wrote in response to his sense that the general public was just not getting it: The guy at the corner gas station, the Idaho lumberjack, the small town school bus driver, and – for that matter – newspaper editors and college professors, were systematically being misled by a Chicken Little mentality that insisted the sky was falling every time the word radiation appeared in print, whenever global warming or the ozone layer was mentioned, or whenever an act of terrorism took place.

The original columns were published in various newspapers and periodicals in the Northwest and Southern California during the late 1980s and early 1990s, although much of it has appeared either updated or as new material within the last few years. Although politically pertinent at the time of its publication, the original material is timeless, as pertinent and fresh today as when written. The current material is, of course, as timely as today’s and tomorrow’s headlines.

The author’s eclectic interests and broad experience have ideally prepared him to drop Chicken Little on the spin doctors who terrify the general public with their dire predictions of immanent disaster. We may no longer huddle in our backyard bomb shelters like our parents during the 1950s, but we spend millions of personal dollars “protecting” ourselves from a vast entourage of things we sincerely believe will harm us (after all, Carl Sagan said…), and we spend billions in tax dollars solving “problems” that exist primarily in the minds of agenda-driven, self-appointed experts who have managed to convince themselves and us that that acorn was a precursor to the fall of heaven itself.

Saturday, January 19, 2008 10:00 AM: Sound Authors Radio

Interview by host Kent Gustavson, PhD, on Sound Authors Radio. Ranges over much of the book, with some special emphasis on Antarctica. This interview has good detail on why current warming is solar-driven. Also a good discussion about terrorists obtaining nuclear weapons.

Thursday, March 15, 2007 12:05 PM: Lauren Stone Show

Discussed global warming and its ramifications. Looked at exceptions to the "predictions" from Gore and friends.

Thursday, February 22, 2007 9:00 AM: Lauren Stone Show

Lauren Stone interviewed Dr. Williscroft about the book in general, and specifically about global warming and Al Gore. They discussed the specifics of why global warming is apparently caused by the 1,500 year solar cycle and by the 11 year sun spot cycle.

Thursday, February 8, 2007 8:00 AM: Troy Hill Show

Troy Hill covered the waterfront in a full 13 minutes, starting with global warming, talking about the ozone layer, and finishing with nuclear power, including a discussion of Three-Mile Island and Chernobyl.

Tuesday, January 16, 2007 1:00 AM: Michael Medved Show

Set up as a debate between Williscroft and Seattle Peak Oil Awareness, an off-the-wall group that believes the world has passed the midpoint in its oil production capacity, and that wide spread famine and other calamities reside in our future as a direct consequence of our dependence on oil. Williscroft debates their chief engineer directly, and shill callers come on line to make specific points that Williscroft answers. It's a complete rout!

SPLASH: The Chicken Little Agenda goes into 2nd printing!

What if I told you there was a book that even a person with no scientific knowledge could read and understand that would dispel all your fears about “global warming,” nuclear energy, “ozone holes,” and much of what the daily media tells you poses a terrible threat to the Earth and you? 

What if I told you the book was written by a retired submarine officer with a B.S. in oceanography and meteorology from the University of Washington and a M.S. and Ph.D. in engineering from California Coast University? 

What if I told you that, after reading The Chicken Little Agenda you would be the best informed, smartest person in the room when someone began to tell everyone that the Earth was doomed, there’s no way to provide electricity without producing greenhouse gases, blah, blah, blah! 

This is hands-down the best book I have read in a very long time when it comes to explaining and debunking the kind of nonsense in Al Gore’s new film or the cover stories of Time and other so-called news magazines. Do yourself a very big favor and read it.
