How is it that opinion articles like this tend to avoid facts and focus on things like mud pies and hair shirts. (What is a hair shirt???) In the same week that this article was published, the US National Climatic Data Centre, reported that the global average ocean temperature was the warmest in 130 years of records. 1.1C above the 20th Century average. Ian Plimer. One of the handful of scientists that is routinely rolled out as a \'real scientist\' who questions anthropogenic global warming. And one who has never published a research paper in a peer-reviewed scientific journal on the subject. Like all of ... that\'s all of ... the rest of them.
