Chris Mooney seems somewhat bemused by Jennifer Marohasy’s response to his interview on Lateline. Marohasy claimed: according to an interview Mr Mooney gave last night on Australian television if you don’t believe in AGW you aren’t even a scientist. Compare with what Mooney actually said: If you’re talking about the basic question of: is global…

Marohasy’s dishonesty

Pure Poison is a new blog covering the intellectual dishonesty of Australia’s punditocrats. Tobias Ziegler covers Marohasy’s response to Bond University’s categorical denial of her claim that Jon Jenkins had been fired for his opinions: But her most disingenuous statement was the following: My original blog piece included both fact and opinion. You may disagree…

I asked the Bond University registrar about Marohasy’s claim that: For his opinion, Professor Jenkins received an official reprimand from the Bond University Registrar and then was informed last Friday that his adjunct status had been revoked. The registrar replied: Dr Jenkins was a member of staff here for some considerable time and resigned to…

Remember Jon Jenkins and his sixth degree polynomial fit? Well, Jennifer Marohasy is presenting him as a martyr for the denialist cause. Interestingly Bond University has a new name for its business and IT faculties, The Faculty of Business, Technology & Sustainable Development, but apparently didn’t like Professor Jenkins’ very public opinion on the subject…

How would you describe this graph of global sea level from the University of Colorado?

Blog posts in jack boots

Jennifer Marohasy has posted a list of the “ten worst blog posts“. Tamino and Eli Rabett are crowing are crowing because they got number one and two and the best I could do was number six. Cohenite, the guy who compiled the list, had earlier compiled a list of the “ten best climate research papers”…

On Saturday the Australian published an article by Jennifer Marohasy. It’s the usual cherry-picked global-warming-ended-in-1998 nonsense, and Barry Brook has written a detailed refutation. But I felt I should post this graph from Marohasy’s piece where she tries to make global warming go away by changing the scale on the graph:

AGW denial roundup

Alicia Newton, an Associate Editor of Nature Geoscience, discovers the truth about CO2Science: But rather than its promise of “separating reality from rhetoric in the emotionally-charged debate that swirls around the subject of carbon dioxide and global change”, on the contrary CO2 Science twists the most recent science, ever so subtly, to suggest that there…

Words fail me

Via Gummo Trotsky, the latest argument posted by Jennifer Marohasy: Radiative equilibrium is one of the foundation stones of radiative forcing theory. But it is not a law of physics, only a rather archaic and untested supposition found in climatology textbooks alone. “For the Earth to neither warm or cool, the incoming radiation must balance…

Marohasy makes it up

In my previous post I noted in his story promoting AGW denial Adam Shand disputed even the most uncontroversial statements (eg “Summer is warmer than winter”) from supporters of mainstream science he uncritically accepted everything from the AGW deniers. For example, he agrees with Jennifer Marohasy, who claims: Global temperatures over the past ten years…
