Paul MacRae is an ex-journalist who has worked as an editor, editorial writer and columnist for several newspapers over the past 40 years, including The Toronto Star, Globe and Mail, Bangkok Post, and Victoria Times Colonist. In 2002 Paul switched to academia and now teaches English and professional writing at the University of Victoria and University Canada West, a new private university in Victoria, BC.
Paul maintains a website, False Alarm, where you will find excerpts from and notes for a book on climate change that he's been researching for the past year entitled False Alarm: Why Almost Everything Weíve Been Told About Global Warming is Misleading, Exaggerated, or Plain Wrong* (* Including the Claim that the Planet is Warming). You can read more about the book and why Paul decided to take on this topic on the About My Book page on his site. In addition, Paul provides links to other sites that deal intelligently with the question of climate change from a skeptical perspective.
Paul doesnít claim to be an expert on climate science. But, as a former journalist, he does claim an ability to know when the public is being told partial truths or falsehoods. Everything Paul has read since he began his research convinces him more and more that, as his book title argues, most of what we, the public, have been told about global warming is misleading, exaggerated, or plain wrong, including the claim that the planet is warming (it hasn't since 1998)
