Dear Maurice Newman,
I am very disappointed in the continuing false “balance” of ABC reporting on the science of climate change.
This science has now developed to the stage where text books are being written that set out the principles of planetary climate.
You need to accept the scientific consensus on climate change and stop allowing people such as Plimer and Bob Carter to spread misinformation. They continue to ignore the masses of evidence that our climate is changing and the consensus supported by all the major national and international scientific organizations around the world.
Bob Carter was featured in a report recently on ABC radio that suggested that there was doubt that the planet is warming. There is NO doubt. The warmest 10 years have all occurred since 1998. Before that the 1990’s was the warmest decade. Before that the 1980’s was the warmest decade.
Please get out of the way so that the rest of us can get on with dealing with this crisis.
