FWIW I think the book "State of Fear" says it all. Written by Michael Crichton in 2004, he write a fiction story using science to back it up.
He received several death threats after the book was published.
A plot summery from wikipedia follows this sentence.

The novel takes place in 2004. The title refers to allegations that political, legal, and media elites deliberately induce a state of unreasonable fear in the general population to keep themselves in power. The key issue in the book around which the terrorists create this state of fear is the existence and causes of global warming.

Hmm... then everything adds up.
