Put the science where your mouth is

“If he [Bob Carter] has any evidence that [global warming over the past 100 years] is a natural variablilty he should publish through the peer review process,” said Graeme Pearman, a former former CSIRO climate scientist. “That is what the rest of us have to do.”

A well-stated and simple point refuting the words of the well-known and very vocal global warming denier Bob (RM) Carter. Often at DSBlog we have quipped that if the so-called “skeptics” are so “skeptical” why don't they get into a lab and prove it. Last time I checked, that's what scientists do. Anything else is just arm-chair quarterbacking.

On climate change, especially, he has marshalled one argument after another to excuse industry - or government - from taking any action whatsoever against a threat that even he acknowleges (“Man-made climate change is, of course, real, and constitutes a serious problem” ).
