not alarmed …

I listened briefly yesterday to another ‘alarming’ ABC interview from Science ‘journalist’ Robin Williams with Sir David Attenborough. It was all rising seas, dying corals and acidification. Don’t get out or read much these days, do they?


  • Claim: CO2 Pollution Could Erase Coral Reefs — Reality Check: ‘Corals evolved during the Cambrian Era, when CO2 levels were 8 to 20 times higher than today’
  • ‘The great coral reefs of the Permian era formed when CO2 was as high as 3,000 ppm CO2. Obviously corals like high levels of CO2’

Alarming alarmism here too: Apocalypse – not


  • ‘Matt Ridley, writing in Wired, exposes the end-of-the-world cultism that infects environmental activism, and shows how in almost every case, they got it spectacularly wrong’
  • ‘From SARS to mad cow disease to acid rain to ozone holes, the environmentalists cannot resist the temptation to invoke apocalyptic prophesies to scare the public witless’

    I seem that this explanation has said that global warming is falsehood.
    Is my interpretation right?
