I should probably be flattered to be invited on to the popular ABC TV program Q&A as a panelist. But why is the promo for the program next Monday advertising Tim Flannery as ‘scientist’ and me as ‘climate sceptic’?
Tony Jones could refer to us both as ‘scientists’. Alternatively the promo could suggest Tim is an ‘alarmist’ and me the ‘denier’.
I am not even a climate sceptic… but rather sceptical of what was the consensus position on anthropogenic global warming.
Anyway, it would be good if there were a few other so-called climate change sceptics at the event… and also some people who don’t believe more water for South Australia will necessarily solve all the environmental problems of the Murray Darling Basin. So, I am encouraging readers of this blog to try for a place in the studio audience next Monday by applying here: http://www2b.abc.net.au/AudienceBooking/Client/AudienceRegistration.aspx

Also, the annual Australian Environment Foundation Conference is this Saturday at Rydges in Brisbane. Max Rheese is organising a Q&A session at the Conference dinner on Saturday night, to give me some practice in advance of Monday, October 18th. Apparently there will be a ‘Tony Jones’ at the dinner and through him you can ask me questions. It should be a lot of fun. You can register here: http://aefweb.info/
