Plimer encouraged

Not only does Cardinal George Pell believe in the Virgin Birth, he also believes nitrogen is a greenhouse gas.

The Cardinal’s latter error is perhaps inevitable, since he’s apparently invested a lot of faith in Professor Ian Plimer’s ‘anti-warming’ tract Heaven and Earth, which is not known for its veracity.

It’s all come out in Senate committee hearings, in which Dr Greg Ayers of the Bureau of Meteorology has felt obliged to make a statement to provide balance in response to the Plimer-Pell creed. Tim Lambert has background and details.

One of the highlights is Greens Senator Scott Ludlam’s suggestion that, if Plimer desires a right of reply to Ayer’s statement, “He can publish another work of science fiction.”
