Here’s an interesting interview with Australian geologist Ian Plimer whose new book Heaven and Earth takes on the Cult of Global Warming and with hard facts and without fear. This is what Plimer about why his work gives him the authority to speak about global warming:
‘I’m a natural scientist. I’m out there every day, buried up to my neck in sh**, collecting raw data. And that’s why I’m so sceptical of these models, which have nothing to do with science or empiricism but are about torturing the data till it finally confesses. None of them predicted this current period we’re in of global cooling. There is no problem with global warming. It stopped in 1998. The last two years of global cooling have erased nearly 30 years of temperature increase.’
He is brash, but it’s the kind of brashness you can only have when you know what you’re talking about. If his book is half as interesting as he comes across in his interview, it ought to be one heck of a read.
