The Climate Show 15: Michael Ashley and the ineducable Carter

Posted on 30 June 2011 by John Cook

The Climate Show have released Episode 15. The boys were trying to keep this one short but failed miserably. They look at the Eritrean volcanoes, Jeff Master's impactful extreme weather article, a new report on the dire state of the oceans, and Stoat's big bet. Special guest was Professor Michael Ashley from the University of New South Wales (he's the guy who suggested to me that Skeptical Science should do multiple levels of rebuttals, fundamentally and irrevocably changing the website). I discuss my response to Bob Carter's egregious misinformation and manage to throw in a few extra graphs for good measure.

  1. Yikes - it's an hour+ long. Not all of us have spare bandwidth/time to check it out. Can you do a quick round-up of the segment, or at least give the time code? Cheers, barry.

  2. Hey, that's a good 15 minutes shorter than the previous episode, so the efforts at brevity are having some effect! barry, it's well worth watching the whole lot. I like to have it open on my second screen while doing other more menial tasks on the first [cough World of Warcraft cough]...

  3. To be honest, I rarely watch the show - I download the podcast onto my iPod and listen to it while doing chores. My interview is on at the 45 minute mark and hurtles by for only 13 minutes (over that time, my daughter walks past in the background, our dog ambles by and you can see the back of Wendy's head the whole time).

  4. Nice piece. I think your even, good-natured tone is very effective -- like you're not trying to "sell" something, and not panicked -- just relating the facts.
