Jo Nova, our resident science mis-communicator is given another chance to confuse the climate debate by posting an article on the ABC’s Drum site:
The House of Commons committee was surely supposed to be protecting the citizens of the UK from being deceived and defrauded, so what did they say when faced with obvious malpractice? Did they draw their swords and declare that honest taxpayers deserve better? Not at all. They whitewashed it…
..We’re supposed to “trust” that guys who wish harm on their opponents, who are hell-bent on finding support for their personal favourite hypothesis, who fear and thwart any effort to audit them, we’re supposed to believe these guys care about getting the research right? “
Having seen the very personal and human cost of Climategate (see previous entry), it’s time to stand up to these bullies and professional liars.
Nova has brought an army of posters from her own blog to berate, bully and spin the facts even further. The debate is still raging.
Go there, fight the good fight.
