My latest plea to James Delingpole

JD caught in the Crossfire again!

JD caught in the Crossfire again!

Dear James, As promised, I have published my review of Watermelons on Amazon. Notwithstanding the forthcoming addition to your Coward franchise, can I implore you, please, to read stuff like Prof. Peter Sale’s new book, Our Dying Planet, before considering writing another one yourself. Even if you don’t care that all the world’s coral reefs may be annihilated by AGW by the end of this Century, can you not find it in your heart to be concerned about the hundreds of millions of people that live in proximity to these beautiful ecosystems and depend on them for their survival (fishing/tourism etc)? As I have said (in my review), I am not attacking you; I am attacking your dangerously-erroneous message. Therefore, I trust that you will not seek to get Amazon to take-down my review of your book? If it subsequently disappears I will know this plea has been ignored! No hard feelings? Rick.

    Judging by the comments on your review, and other reviews, of ‘Watermelons’ you have collected a whole hoard of Orcs, Orcs so ignorant that they cannot appreciate how little they know and understand less. I’ll bet you feel like a good shower after wrestling with that lot. Perhaps they should be reminded of Sir Paul Nurse’s confounding the ‘interpreter of interpretations’ (I of I). Having seen Alberta’s tar sand workings from Google Earth I see a Tolkienesque landscape spreading across the globe. I will not read any Delingpole book, well certainly not by contributing to Delingpole’s pension fund by way of royalties. However it looks like support for your courageous stance will be necessary so I’ll keep a look out in the charity shops. PS. You have omitted the first ‘l’ in Delingpole in the headline.
