Are pupils, parents and the public being fed political propaganda on climate change? Is the climate industry the biggest financial and scientific scam in history? If it is, we will pay dearly. Author of the book Prof. Ian Plimer gives 101 simple Q. with A. to ask teachers, activists, journalists and politicians.
“In the last decade, we have been authoritatively told and forced to accept that the Earth has been warming up. Before fully acceding to the global warming alarmism, we want to know why, how much and how relevant (if not dangerous) the warming is or could be. Many politicians, journalists and activists among scientists pretend to know all the answers to global warming. The theory is, that man and his irresponsible activities (emitting CO2) are the cause. As a result, the warming will be unusually high and will have disastrous consequences. Moreover, the "science is settled", they claim, which is not at all true. There are many serious opponents, people whose views are different. One of them is Professor Ian Plimer, a well-respected Australian geologist, of The University of Adelaide and The University of Melbourne. He reacted to the fact that one of his scientific disciplines - earth science- had been stolen by non-scientists who had been assisted by scientists who prefer celebrity status, fame and luxurious life to the simple, solemn, financially less rewarding life of a scholar. He also understood the consequences of all that. He understood that climatology had converted into a servant of global warming doctrine that is not a science, but an ideology, if not religion, based on the idea that man, by emitting CO2, controls the climate. This simple doctrine says that rising, man-made CO2 emissions drive up the temperature on Earth.” - Dr Vaclav Klaus, President of the Czech Republic.
