MSM: Eleven Minute Friendly Interview with Climate Skeptic Ian Plimer

EXCELLENT! Rowan Dean and Ross Cameron, two absolute legends of Australian ‘mainstream’ media. Their top-rating show “Outsiders” attracting a huge audience of the forgotten silent-majority, conservative audience who appreciate the bi-weekly attention to the rational side of the climate debate – skepticism!

Nice one Ian, Sky, Ross and Rowan! Keep up the great work. A breath of fresh air!

Watts Up With That?

Guest essay by Eric Worrall

Sky News, one of Australia’s most popular news services, just gave climate skeptic and geologist Ian Plimer an honest opportunity to explain what is wrong with Australia’s climate obsessed energy policies.

It’s ‘not possible’ to have cheap, reliable energy and reduce emissions

Geologist Ian Plimer told The Outsiders that Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg had caught himself ‘between a rock and a hard place’ when it comes to the government’s energy policies. Mr Plimer said it wasn’t possible for the energy market to provide cheap and reliable energy, but also reduce emissions. It comes after several Liberal backbenchers formed a ginger group to promote the idea of the government subsidising a new coal fired power plant to be build on the existing Hazelwood power station.

ANTARCTICA : It’s Time We Had That Talk


IT’S time for “the talk.” You know, the one we’ve been putting off because it’s “inconvenient”. That end-of-life conversation…

YEP! Antarctica, the ‘inconvenient’ pole, the naughty child, has been gaining ice mass and cooling for decades, despite a 20 per cent increase in atmospheric CO2, and model predictions to the contrary.

From the abstract:

Mass changes of the Antarctic ice sheet impact sea-level rise as climate changes, but recent rates have been uncertain. Ice, Cloud and land Elevation Satellite (ICESat) data (2003–08) show mass gains from snow accumulation exceeded discharge losses by 82 ± 25 Gt a−1, reducing global sea-level rise by 0.23 mm a−1.
