The Climate Show #32: a Cook's tour of the Aussie heat

Posted on 2 February 2013 by Gareth

At long last: John Cook from Skeptical Science rejoins the Climate Show team for the first show of 2013. He hooks up with Glenn and Gareth to review Australia’s big heatwave, and stays around to dig into the new Greenpeace report on dirty energy, discuss Obama’s inauguration speech and Boris Johnson’s climate blunder, the latest scary news on sea level rise and the implications for the future. Plus much much more…

  2. Particularly useful were few links you guys have shown. Worth following and reading on your own. BTW, could all the links the climate show guys are talking about be listed under the embedded video next time around for the listener's convenience?

    The icesheet talk by Richard Alley is particularly fascinating, not no be missed!

  3. Nice show gentlemen.  Living in the southern US right now (otherwise known as "denyer central"), I can tell you this is going to be a very long fight.  What history has shown us, is that people don't tend to move on an issue until it is at its doorstep.  When increased melting continues on Greenland (like the melting "event" that took place last summer) will need to be repeated for a coule of years.  That will get the attention in the northeast US.  But for peole in the southern US, it will take a huricane to slam into Miami, Houston, or New Orleans again.

    As temperatures continue to rise, and as storms continue to batter our coast, as droughts continue to bake our interior.....people's mindset will gradually change.  Denyers need to be publicly held to account for their lies.
