Climate sense from Miranda Devine

There appears to be a preponderance of climate sense at the moment - what's going on? Another spot on article from Miranda Devine in the Sydney Morning Herald (how on earth does she get published?), which discusses Ian Plimer from the University of Adelaide:
Plimer said there is a division between those scientists who sit in front of super computers and push piles of data into the mathematical models that drive the theory of climate change, and those who take measurements in the field.

We are not sceptical enough about the data. For instance, Plimer cited differences between results from temperature measuring stations in urban and rural areas. Those in urbanised Chicago, Berkeley, New York, and so on, show temperature rises over the past 150 years, whereas those in the rural US, in Houlton, Albany and Harrisburg (though not Death Valley, California) show equally consistent cooling. "What we're measuring is urbanisation," Plimer said.

This is quite right, because if you look at the satellite records, there just isn't any warming!
Plimer says creationists and climate alarmists are quite similar in that "we're dealing with dogma and people who, when challenged, become quite vicious and irrational".

Human-caused climate change is being "promoted with religious zeal … there are fundamentalist organisations which will do anything to silence critics. They have their holy books, their prophet [is] Al Gore. And they are promoting a story which is frightening us witless [using] guilt [and urging] penance."

More of the same, please.

  • It is amaing how she gets published when just about everything she writes is unsubstantiated drivel.

    If anything symbolises the decline of a once great newspaper it's Devine's promotion as a journo at the SMH.

    Her trip to Baghdad to interview Petraeus being the peak of the idiocy that is Devine.

    She's the dumbest journalist in Australia apart from Piers Ackerman.

  • If she's the dumbest journalist in Australia, then it should be pretty easy to deal with her arguments. Why don't you do that instead of name calling?
