Only kidding of course. But the Australian attempts to put all sceptics in their place by reporting a lecture given by Marvin Geller of Stony Brook University in New York State. Under the patronising headline:

Professor sheds light for climate change sceptics

(as if we sceptics are Neanderthals grovelling around in the fog of ignorance), Geller spouts the usual alarmist stuff. But the good professor’s logic is full of holes, as whilst he states that a very small change in solar radiation cannot possibly affect climate, he then goes on to state that a very small change in CO2 obviously does. He then compares the effect of this harmless trace gas to cyanide… oh dear.

And it’s really all downhill from there: 11 of last 12 years warmest on record (only since 1850 of course), insulting our intelligence by explaining the difference between “weather” and “climate” in terms that would patronise a 12-year-old.
