They’ve had enough with climate sceptics according to Cosmos magazine:
The academy cannot issue a statement without consulting its 400 fellows, who happen to be Australia’s most respected scientists. So when it comes out swinging, it’s hard for the sceptics to just dismiss them.
What they’re saying is “Enough is enough”: they’re defending the science, citing the deep certainty and the less deep uncertainty. In doing so, they’re also delivering a body blow to self-appointed ‘experts’ who trivialise, misunderstand or just plain twist the data.
“While the science of climate has become increasingly complex, elements of it often seem to be deceivingly simple and many people can become instant experts,” said academy fellow and former president Kurt Lambeck at Monday’s launch.
Wonder what the likes of Nova and Bolt will make of it?
Let battle commence.
