A source of mine (hat tip to Big Buck Hunter) has alerted me to a new push by the denial movement in trying to shape the debate.
A new book has been published by the Institute of Public Affairs and includes articles from some of the denial movements most prominent figures (Plimer, Monckton):
Climate change, the facts. Note the irony in my delivery of that last sentence.
Apparently some Members of Parliament (MPs) are getting hit with brochures and email spam for the above. The IPA have created a web site to accompany the book at http://climatechange.ipa.org.au/
Free copies will most likely be distributed to politicians, so expect a fresh batch of “talking points” from “sceptical” politicians. A copy of the book is coming to me: analysis of contents soon.
The site declares:
The world’s best scientists and economists on why we need an honest debate about the facts of climate change.
Governments around the world want to dramatically increase taxes, regulate energy supplies and limit individual choices to deal with climate change.
But what do we really know about the science of climate change? Is climate change caused by humans?
Is there really a ‘scientific consensus’?
If you come across this flyer, email spams etc. let Watching the Deniers know.
This is the start of their counter offensive.
Let’s keep our eyes out.
