Here’s a piece in this week’s Spectator magazine – a right wing political journal here in the UK.
They’ve interviewed Ian Plimer, the Professor of Mining Geology at Adelaide University, who says :
“The hypothesis that human activity can create global warming is extraordinary because it is contrary to validated knowledge from solar physics, astronomy, history, archaeology and geology”
His views aren’t new – but they have been given prominence here and he has his supporters. George Monbiot, who has been on WHYS a few times, isn’t one of them .
“In one of the gravest misjudgments in journalism this year, today the Spectator has made the book’s British publication its cover story, with the headline “Relax: Global Warming is all a myth”. Its story consists of a hagiography of Plimer by James Delingpole, a man who knows – and cares – less about science than I do about Formula One.”
and he publishes reviews damning Professor Plimer’s book.
Now, i haven’t made enquiries as to whether Prof Plimer will come on the show – i have no idea whether he would or not, but do you think we should invite him ? Would you like to put your questions to him ?
Or do you think his theories have been so comprehensively trashed that it would serve no value ?
