The case for optimism on climate change: Al Gore TED talk

Murdoch press: Lame jests to belittle climate change

Why is the Murdoch media publishing muddle-headed toilet-humour ridiculing climate change?  Is this part of their plan for increasing community confusion about climate change?

Here is a letter published in the Melbourne Herald Sun: 11 Jan 2016

Different Climate:  Sometimes you can’t help but smile.  During a TV documentary I was watching recently, about recovering fossilised fish from an old lake bed, the host explained the fish became fossilised about 5 million years ago when the lake bed dried up die to climate change. Didn’t realise our influence stretched back that far, or it was all those dinosaurs exhaling hot air and breaking wind? (Name Printed: Launceston, Tasmania)

The Murdoch press makes out that climate change is not only false but a joke.

Episodes of climate change long ago were not caused by (1) the current industrial emissions of carbon dioxide, nor by (2) the breathing and farting of dinosaurs.  They were caused by things like periodic changes to the earth’s orbit.
