The Climate Caper by Garth Paltridge

Closely on the heels of Professor Ian Plimer’s hefty contribution to the Global Warming debate (Heaven and Earth. Global Warming: The Missing Science, ConnorCourt Publishing, 2009, now in its umpteenth pritning) comes another stimulating work by a fellow Australian scientist, Garth Paltridge (The Climate Caper).
See the review by John Izzard in Quadrant Online.
It begins:
“There is a wonderful image from the painting by Pieter Bruegel the Elder, The Blind Leading the Blind on the cover of a new book on the crass new celebrity-science Global Warming a.k.a. Climate Change.
These two quasi-scientific expressions deserve capital letters as they have now moved from the notion of a theory to a rapidly developing religion.
In his new book, The Climate Caper, Garth Paltridge joins the growing band of eminent scientists and rational thinkers who are challenging the runaway theory of human induced Global Warming. Like the Wendy’s hamburger TV commercial from the USA — they are exclaiming of the science, “where’s the beef”.
Unfortunately, Global Warming scientists who want to find simple explanations for complicated questions about The Meaning of Life, are behaving more like Monty Python performers than men and women of science.”
