Religious zeal (letter)


by P.C. Wilson

News Weekly, June 13, 2009
Sir,

Nowhere in Dr Brian Lloyd's attack on "the climate contrarians" - to use his quaint phrase (Letters, News Weekly, May 30) - does he produce any evidence to show that the earth is warming.

By contrast, the man he denigrates, Professor Ian Plimer, has backed up his thesis by exploring the incredibly complex mix of elements involved in any climate change.

As "an intelligent observer", Dr Lloyd must surely know that relying on the science fiction of computer models is the best way to get it wrong.

And as for the "religious zeal" of his opponents, Dr Lloyd should look at some of his strange bedfellows - Peter Garrett ("the science is settled"), Al Gore ("polar bears now an endangered species"), and Ross Garnaut (little will be left of Kakadu or the Great Barrier Reef unless "something is done").

At long last, the public is waking up - to Lloyd, Garnaut, Garrett and Gore.

(Mr) P.C. Wilson,
Miami, Qld
