Australians who have their dial glued to the ABC, and who read this blog (e.g. Luke), may have just seen ‘The Great Global Warming Swindle’ on ABC TV as well as a discussion, following the film, hosted by Tony Jones.
A few observations before I open this thread to comments:
Ray Evans, a global warming skeptic, called the coal industy ‘pathetic’.
Greg Bourne from WWF, imitating Peter Garrett, suggested it was good that big business has moved on.
Michael Duffy, ABC Counterpoint, suggested Tony Jones should be as thorough with Al Gore as Martin Durkin.
Robyn Williams, ABC Science Show, suggested the Insurance Industry was good and on the money for taking global warming seriously.
David Karoly, Melbourne Uni, said the ocean was a source of carbon dioxide and that there has been a lot more (C02) in the past.
Tony Blair’s advisor said there was a consensus.
The audience talked about Eugenics.
And Bob Carter, a so-called climate change skeptic, said climate changes.
