QUOTE : Several weeks ago News Limited columnist Andrew Bolt emailed me to object to a brief passage in the article in which I asserted that “Bolt receives direct support from Australia’s richest mining magnate and climate denialist, Gina Rinehart”.
In collaboration with the editors at The Conversation the article was immediately amended to remove this claim and the following editor’s note was added:
Editor’s note: An earlier version of this article implied that Gina Rinehart has provided direct financial support to Andrew Bolt. There is no evidence to support this claim. This has been corrected. ENDQUOTE
Bolt complained it took a long time
- Tim Flannery 2005 : "I’m afraid that the science around climate change is firming up fairly quickly . . . we’ve seen just drought, drought, drought, and particularly regions like Sydney and the Warragamba catchment-if you look at the Warragamba catchment figures, since 98 the water has been in virtual freefall, and they’ve got about two years of supply left . . .
Maxine McKew: But. . . we won’t see a return to more normal patterns?
Flannery: . . . they do seem to be of a permanent nature. I don’t think it’s just a cycle. I’d love to be wrong, but I think the science is pointing in the other direction.
McKew: So does that mean, really, we’re faced with-if that’s right-back-to-back droughts and continuing thirsty cities?
Flannery: That’s right.
- Another more practical scientist called him out : Associate Professor Stewart Franks, of the University of Newcastle, thinks scientists should know better than to make incorrect statements about drought here. "The mistake that the numerous expert commentators made, was that they confused climate variability for climate change. The future impact of climate change is very uncertain, but when one “wants to believe”, then it is all too easy to get sucked in and to get it spectacularly wrong. In principle, these people should really know better."
If there’s no action before 2012, that’s too late. What we do in the next two to three years will determine our future. This is the defining moment.
