A great book, which results in Gareth Morgan's pathetic effort being relegated to the role of a door stop. Just look at what climate extremists want to do to Palmerston North,

I am astonished at how shallow the criticism of "air con" has been so far.
Aparantly its a load of crap because Ian thinks greenies eat children. I find it strange how people dismiss an obviously popular book. I wonder whether Ian has any figures on the number of books sold so far, and of his other titles that supposedly no one is reading.

Yeah, Gareth was disappointing on Sunday. One low slung island in PNG with a wave. No science about the particular area at all. If Billy Graham hadn't been on as well I'd have missed it - I wish I had.

Interesting link regarding Bob Carter:

http://www.logicalscience.com/skeptics/bobcarter.html

Does he really have financial backing from the stated sources?

A University Professor head-over-heels with Ian Wishart regarding climate change - has me wondering about such questions.

Fantastic book. The climate alarmists have no answer to it. The emmissions trading scheme will lead us all to the poor house, while the planet continues to cool.

You'd think people would be delighted to hear the good news that global warming appears not to be accelerating towards doomsday! But flame after flame on people reporting this good news indicates there are many out there who are desperate for global warming to continue... Go figure :-|

Agreed.

There's good $$$ to be made in promoting doom.

Over $US50 Billion spent of research!

Only have to look at what Al Gore rakes in to see that.

Apart from the fact that the site linked to is complete rubbish, Bob Carter is probably a member of many institutes; it doesn't mean he's being funded by oil companies. His main funding is no doubt from the James Cook University where he works.

Saying that anyone who possibly has any link to an oil company must be lying (i.e. playing the man and not the ball) is a pathetic attempt to overcome the fact that, on presently available evidence, the global warming sceptics are right.

Click on the audio link above and you will hear Bob Carter say that he has only read the first 30 pages of the book. The book is 300 pages long. That's 90% of the book unread.

I would dismiss the integrity of anyone who is willing to make such a judgement based on such limited knowledge. His statement is obviously more about marketing than considered judgement.

So - how many suckers bought this book?

openmind

Hopefully not too many suckers did.
Bob Carter? http://www.sourcewatch.org/index.php?title=Bob_Carter
Vincent R. Grey is a coal chemist, curious.
Whenever I look into these denialist claims, invariably the authors are either incompetent or lack integrity [i.e. have ties to industry]. And as to the author? I don't trust the word of a right-wing born again fundamentalist. I particularly enjoyed Hot Topic's view on it. I suggest you go to sites like realclimate.org for better discussion on GBW.

robk

Just be careful you are not so 'openmind'-ed your brain falls through the crack :-D

"GBW" ??? Is this something NEW for us to worry about? :-O

Actually from what I've seen. There's far more incompentence and deliberate fabrication of data by the Global Warming Propagandists.

I see the NOAA was caught again doing that just recently.

The biggest falsifers of data were the IPCC.

openmind

It seems it's easier to point out a typo than refute something. Unsurprising. The fact of the matter is the author and his best buddies in their reports have used shoddy science to confuse the issue.
Falsifiers of data, care to back up that odious claim? I've seen misinterpreting, massaging and falsifying of data by those that claim this is all false. I also find it patently ridiculous that you would trust those that get their money from large oil businesses. What vested interest does the IPCC have? Oh that's right, they want to take away your SUVs, small children and break up the family so they can all go on private bird sanctuary visits. I think your bong pipes need a refill.

IPCC did falsify and overhype data. Scientists envolved in the originals reports were not given the right of reply when the IPCC changed their figures.

I'm not going to bother going into any further.

If you want to believe fake pretend computer model figures then that's fine by me. Don't expect the rest of us to be the lambs to the slaughter of the liars fraudsters and propagandists crooks like Al Gore and his bent cohorts!

BTW: Forget going on about the oil companies. FYI. many interests of the wealthy elite pushing and behind the Global Climate Change barrow have interests and investments in oil companies.

Not only that some of the environmental movement has had funding by oil and energy interests in the past. The reason being funding environmental groups is actually good for business. Make bigger profits on seller less of the product.

So its the pot calling the kettle black!

Hey, Peter!

You and your Greenie mates better start sending a flotilla here. You might have to sacrifice yourself to appease the Volcano God!

Will Krakatoa rock the world again? Last time, it killed thousands and changed the weather for five years, now it could be even deadlier...

Bright orange lava spews up into the air, dark smoke mingles with the clouds and the gloomy night takes on an ominous red glow.

Towering 1,200ft above the tropical stillness of the Sunda Strait in Indonesia, one of the most terrifying volcanoes the world has ever known has begun to stir once more.

Almost 126 years to the day since Krakatoa first showed signs of an imminent eruption, stunning pictures released this week prove that the remnant of this once-enormous volcano is bubbling, boiling and brimming over.
