Radio interview with Skeptically Speaking

Skeptically Speaking is a fantastic radio show with the slogan "Question everything". Hosted by Desiree Shell (and with a catchy jingle, note to Doug Moutal), the show is committed to the skepticism community (by skepticism, they mean a basis on scientific evidence, not misinformation or ideology). Last Sunday, they aired a show, The Evidence for Climate Change, featuring an interview with myself. You can download the whole show straight from the website or subscribe to the Skeptically Speaking podcast (I know I have, can't get enough science podcasts).

The interview goes for nearly 40 minutes where they throw a bunch of global warming skeptic arguments at me:  the sun, Climategate, the hockey stick, ice age predictions in the 1970s, the difference between weather and climate, extreme weather and so on. I also managed to slip in "Human CO2 is tiny" as it was still fresh in my head after last week's podcast.  Hopefully it's worth a listen and I recommend adding Skeptically Speaking to your list of podcasts.

Also, the CSIRO's ECOS Magazine latest edition has an article by Graham Readfern, Blogging on climate change – a job for the brave. The article looks at the efforts of several climate blogs, including Climate Shifts (originating from my own University of Queensland), Tim Lambert's Deltoid and Skeptical Science. Thanks to Doug for the heads up.
