Read in the Un-Australian from the Merde-och press....
From Don Aitkin
To me the ABC seems committed to the view that anthropogenic global warming (AGW, now transmuted into "climate change") is a real and present threat to humanity. Such a position, if I am right that it exists, is at odds with its own editorial policies and code of practice (both excellent documents and similar in their content). Among other things they state that "aiming to equip audiences to make up their own minds is consistent with the public service character of the ABC" - and who could disagree? Accordingly, "the ABC has a statutory duty to ensure that the gathering and presentation of news and information is impartial according to the recognised standards of objective journalism."
Is this guy serious??? Did he get his university degrees by buying fairy floss at a country fete? Is the world still flat?
Don Aitkin dances around a pile of crap as if it were a sacred bonfire...
The ABC is actually slanted towards conservatism 55/45.... The real scientists there at the ABC have to use some nifty subterfuges to let the world know what is really happening on the subect of global warming... Jonathan Holmes at the ABC is not a scientist and his department of loonies is all about "slanted opinion"... So don't take a beef with the ABC staff in general, but argue against Jonathan if you must, like i do all the time...
But on the subject of global warming, the IPCC science is correct... The few scientists who argue against it are using the wrong data, ALWAYS make UNSCIENTIFIC assumptions and MOST do the sums for the proponents of fossil fuel burning...
Ah, I see, the article as printed in the Un-Australian is a short version of an article first published in the Sydney Institute Quarterly, led by no other Mr Glum, Gerard Henderson... Say no more... But wait, there is more!... This fellow is the Chairman of the Australian Research Council, a governmental organisation designed to give scientists the nod by slipping them grants... Nero Merde-och plays the violin on the hottest day ever recorded in Sydney...
