Winter holidays

Like many other Australians, I’ll be spending some time up North on the Queensland coast with family. Blogging will be on hold for two weeks…

I recommend the many fine blogs listed here for updates on climate change.

    Do Australians have Winter AND Summer holidays ? Sounds good…

    Not exactly. We have midwinter school breaks. Anyone who’s a teacher or a parent gets a chance for a couple of weeks to “go north” where it’s warmer or to the mountains for skiing.

    Have a good break. I moved here to QLD from Sydney 20 years ago. In winter its the best time to be outdoors or even trips to the beach. I’m taking the kids to the Gold Coast tomorrow for a play on the beach. They can stay for hours, this time of the year, its winter, but warm enough for them to go in the water. Gotta love it. 21C/70F tomorrow, nice.

    Christopher Monckton and other deniers get far more press coverage than they deserve. Journalistic false balance has caused the public to be confused on climate change – the greatest threat to humanity this century. Worse, these deniers have used mainstream media to attack climate science and the scientists who pursue the truth. Let us now turn the tables.

    Monckton has been exposed by Dr. John Abraham and instead of hiding his tail and whimpering away, Monckton has gone on the offensive by attacking Dr. Abraham and asking his followers to essentially “email bomb” Dr. Abraham’s university president. We need to alert the media to this story.

    I have assembled a list of 57 media contacts in the hopes that my readers will follow my lead and send letters asking for an investigation of Monckton and his attack on Abraham. I have placed mailto links that will make it easy to send letters to several contacts at once with a single click.

    In the thread comments, please suggest other contacts in the US and from abroad. This blog thread can then be used in the future to alert the media to denialist activity.
