A pleasant surprise in today’s Age

The Age is usually such a rabid AGW advocate but maybe this is the start of a new more balanced approach to the issue of climate change. Maybe its just a the removal of the execrable Jo Chandler from their staff that has seen them mellow, most likely its just a reflection of the fact that the interregnum between Christmas and new year is a time when regular writers are away on leave and the need for copy to fill the paper allows them to cast a wider net than usual. No matter what the reasons for its publication I found the piece by John Spooner most refreshing and worthy of praise:

I hope that the real reason that this piece has got such a prominent place in today’s Age is that the minions at Fairfax are finally realising that they have hitched their faith to a false religion and that its apparently golden idols are nothing but  tat and cheap wax,  that the cold hard light of truth is turning them into the misshapen formless blobs that we sceptics always thought that they were.

Cheers Comrades

    What’s changed nothing! AGW is still there, it’s still happening and the advice is that it is likely to happen sooner rather than later. The only thing that remains the same is that the deniers still have their heads in the sand and governments (especially the wealthy ones) are reluctant to do anything until the poo hits the fan because they might have to underwrite third world nations. Oh, and the deniers are happily using the leaked report selectively to make their point that it ain’t happening.
    Give it another year or two and a lot more deniers will have all changed their minds and be demanding why didn’t their respective governments do more yesterday. I understand that around 61% of Americans consider that AGW is a major issue.
    I’ll do a piece of AGW based on the leaked stuff and the World Bank report in January.

    Like all prophecy the fruition is very often not that similar to the prediction. and make no mistake though the AGW theory still has some currency its credibility is in serious decline.

    Can you really think that any sensible government would spend vast amounts of effort and treasure on a theory based upon dodgy modelling that has failed to predict or explain the 16 year hiatus in warming?

    That is a bold claim and a most unlikely scenario to boot

    61 percent and declining fast…

    Well I look forward to it and I can promise you a post in response when you do :grin:
