The Weather Makers
What is it about ‘global warming’ that brings out the worst in people like Tim Flannery?
Prof Flannery was on ABC Television’s The 7.30 Report last night promoting his new book. I have not read The Weather Makers but I understand from the interview last night that he proposes temperatures are going to rise by 3C and the really bad thing is that our addiction to coal is now driving weather patterns.
Prof Bob Carter, also interviewed, responded: “The idea that we can manage the climate is frankly hubris.”
Flannery also proposed a carbon tax and that this be levied immediately to move power generation away from coal to solar, wind and possibly even nuclear power.
I gather The Age and Sydney Morning Herald, yesterday and on the weekend, gave the book and the dire predictions loads of coverage.
