The One Nation senator dismisses the conventional scientific view of climate change. Here are the holes in his most commonly deployed arguments
The election of Malcolm Roberts as a One Nation senator has put Australia’s media in a difficult spot.
In his , Roberts made many false claims about climate change. He said that climate change was a “scam” and implied that it was some sort of conspiracy between all the major international research agencies. “ ... there is no data proving human use of hydro-carbon fuels affects climate,” he said.
Another inconvenient fact, temperatures statistically have not been warming since 1995
MALCOLM ROBERTS: Yeah, 1930s and 40s were warmer than the current decades … The original records are … first of all, that the data has been corrupted and we know that the 1930s were warmer than today.
BRIAN COX, fellow Q&A panellist and physicist: What do you mean by corrupted? Corrupted? What do you mean corrupted?
The models have already been proven wrong, hopelessly wrong.
The latest warming cycle in the 17th century going into the 18th century was faster and greater than the latest warming …
It is basic. The sun warms the earth’s surface. The surface, by contact, warms the moving, circulating atmosphere. That means the atmosphere cools the surface. How then can the atmosphere warm it? It cannot. That is why their computer models are wrong.
Shhh! My mortgage is paid by an international woollen jumper conspiracy network operating out of Canberra.
