Ah, you can’t beat a good conspiracy to tip the balance of evidence
To counter Richard Muller’s about-face on anthropogenic global warming, the Galileo Movement, the Australian climate-denier organisation, has come up with a new conspiracy. Its manager, Malcolm Roberts has told the Sydney Morning Herald’s Ben Cubby (here) that ‘climate change science had been captured by “some of the major banking families in the world” who form a “tight-knit cabal”.’
Mike Carlton, a fellow SMH columnist comments (here):
In Rightspeak, I understand, that’s code for the Great Jewish Conspiracy which, as everyone should know, also controls the international drug trade and was responsible for starting both world wars. It’s all there in the Protocols of the Elders of Zion.
Update 08/08/2012: Andrew Bolt, one of Australia’s most influential climate deniers, has asked to be removed as a Galileo Movement adviser as a result of Ben Cubby’s story. Graham Readfearn has the details on DeSmoBlog or at his own blog.
