Media Musings Blog Archive The Climate Conversation
Asics paris by Joanna Robin
In a column which appeared on The Conversation’swebsite yesterday Monash University’s David Holme’s urged that media outlets must not surrender to « the media industrial political complex of climate denial,
He penned the column Politicised media: false balance and the pseudo climate debate following the recent incorrect reportage of leaked statistics from the IPCC.
Holmes laments the amount of mainstream media coverage given to climate sceptics, such as Professor Bob Carter a asics kayano homme man who believes global warming stopped 16 years ago, and who recently lost his job at James Cook University in Townsville in the interested of ‘balanced’ reporting.
Everyone’s favourite climate denier Andrew Bolt was quick to address Holmes’ concerns on his personal blog. He argued Holmes « illiberal » offering had failed to grasp the concept of balance, labeling the lecturer and his band of tree hugging lefties an « embarrassment, and a menace to free speech,
Bolt also posted the following screenshot taken from The Conversation (« a taxpayer funded outlet that pumps out endless global warming propaganda with all the contempt for debate that Holmes could wish for ») homepage yesterday.
Just look at all that climate coverage and not a word from Professor Carter! Damning evidence, indeed.
On the question of free speech Holmes left this comment on his piece:
« I am not suggesting restricting the freedom of the press. There are two kinds of rights relevant here, the right of the press to be free from political interference, but also the rights of asics paris audiences to be informed by news and current affairs that is in their interest. Mainstream media is particularly important here because, while it does not tell us what to think, it does set the terms of what to think about,
« The divide isn’t between those who accept the science and those who don’t. Science does not speak with one voice on this matter, although the consensus now is that sceptical positions I’ve argued have indeed proved correct on the warming pause, cyclones, Antarctic ice spread and more. It seems to me it’s actually been the warmists who have not « accepted the science » in these matters,
Perhaps science does not speak with one voice on issue of climate change, but if NASA is to be believed there is certainly a consensus on the matter.
