The ABC told us that skeptics are waging a war on science and that anyone who dares to oppose the carbon tax is an extremist. Given their horrid propaganda piece on Catalyst, that whole organisation is fully deserved of the Climate Fool award. Our tax dollars pay these people, yet they use them to vilify a growing minority (skeptics) and a large majority (people against the carbon tax). It’s unacceptable from the national broadcaster.
It’s not easy being green. That’s what Yarra City Council discovered recently. They failed to meet their emissions reductions targets in favour of indoor heating, yet expect restraunt goers in their jurisdiction to go without this luxury. Such hypocrisy warrants a dishonourable mention.
I’ll throw another one to Michael Mann, for his efforts to avoid disclosure of his emails, now hiring attorneys to make his FOI problems go away. Not the action of an innocent Mann, now is it?
One final dishonourable mention to the Australian Museum, for awarding its Eureka Prize to John Cook of Skeptical Science. I wonder if they even bothered to check the validity of his supposed debunking of skeptical “lies and misinformation”. You don’t have to look very far.
