Author Howard Friel is best known for having found - and written a book documenting - a "pattern of nonexistent footnoted support for assertions in the text"[1] in his exhaustive check of the extensive references provided in Bjorn Lomborg's book Cool It, which is aimed at a lay audience and minimizes the need to cut carbon emissions.


Friel worked as a research assistant for Edward Herman where he discovered Richard Falk's book "Vietnam and International Law" [2]
