About the author
Top reviews from United Kingdom
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Huge amounts of the book are on climate change and green energy it is so overloaded it gets tiresome. It feels like a lecture of climate change by visuals.
Then to top it off there is a page about how many lives were 'Saved' by lockdowns. I presume he must have gotten these figures of the hugely discredited Neil Ferguson as they are complete fiction.
700 excess deaths a week at home in England every week are a direct result of lockdowns and shutting health services.
This is a stunning example of graphic design. I loved the way the author pulls together complex information into beautiful graphics. So nice to see news turned into something uplifting!
