The Tear-Stained Flogs of Climate Science

The Tear-Stained Flogs of Climate Science, by Tony Thomas. Every wonder where your tax goes? Some of it funded another propaganda study:

The authors … sample four female and nine male Australian climate scientists — half of a group of 26 rated “the nation’s leaders in this field”. Tragically, the names of this band of bedwetters are withheld. …

The study took at least three years. … It was funded from part of an ARC research grant of $2,467,256 [you read that right: nearly $2.5m] for “cultural dimensions of environmental sustainability and human-environment interactions, including climate change.”

The interviewees’ particular terror was the “strong climate denialist movement [that] was a source of pressure and a cause of anxiety”. Into the bargain the denialist discourses were “seen to undermine the legitimacy of science authority”. The authors seem unaware that Australia’s leading “denialist” is Joanne Nova, one-time professional science educator and now a housewife in outer suburban Perth with a global reputation. Her only resource is her intellect and her only income is from her blog’s tip jar. No $2.5m taxpayer grants for Joanne…

Joanne is my wife. We have solved the global warming debacle — book soon — with no cost to the taxpayer, living off donations made voluntarily (see the “Donate” button above).
