George Monbiot has the details on Plimer’s latest attempts to evade answering Monbiot’s questions. Plimer wrote to him:
There are seven versions of Heaven and Earth and only my Australian publisher and I know the differences in diagrams, references and text between the seven. It has taken some time to look at your questions and determine which version was used for compilation of the questions. Can you please confirm that you have actually read Heaven and Earth and that your questions derive from that reading.
As Monbiot notes:
This was odd because, judging by the notes made from Heaven and Earth by people in Australia and elsewhere, all editions of his book appear to have the same diagrams, the same references and the same text, with the same page and reference numbers. I was able immediately to compare what people said about his book with my own edition and find the relevant text in moments. Are we really to believe that he was unable to do this? That he couldn’t locate the text and page numbers I cited in his own book?
In other Plimer news, Tamino discovers just how bad Plimer is:
So many of Plimer’s comments are laughably, blatantly, ludicrously false, one hardly knows where to begin — a single lifetime simply isn’t long enough to delve into all of Plimer’s mendacity.
And shows just how false Plimer’s claims that temperatures and Arctic sea ice were warmer 1920-1940 is. In his book Plimer offers a paper as support for claim, but the paper shows the opposite of what Plimer claims.
