All Scientists are Sceptics ~Professor Bob Carter

Whenever someone asserts that a scientific question is “settled,” they tell me immediately that they don’t understand the first thing about science. Science is never settled. Dr David Deming

Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of the science of climate change is the lack of any real substance in attempts to justify the hypothesis ~Professor Stewart Franks

A lie told often enough becomes the truth.

The Spirit of Mawson Film titles


The world has poured scorn on the ill-conceived Spirit of Mawson episode; an excursion wanting to prove Antarctica was melting.

The French for example:
Under these conditions, and based on the synopsis of the expedition, as well as the accounts of a more than festive ambiance on board, one is entitled to wonder about the real scientific character of this adventure.”
“An obvious amateurism…obstinacy and naivety”

As ABC TV reported before the holiday jaunt:
MARGOT O'NEILL, REPORTER: Here in hot, dusty Queensland, scientist Chris Turney is training for the icy desolation of Antarctica. He and his team must learn how to drive this all-terrain vehicle, because if sea ice collapses under them, this vehicle will float.
Oh! how they would later wish that the sea ice would collapsed.
The research stakes are high. Antarctica is one of the great engines driving the world's oceans, winds and weather, especially in Australia. But there's ominous signs of climate change. 
Go, ABC! Push the falsified hypothesis of (man-made) climate change.

MARGOT O'NEILL: Professor Turney and his co-leader Dr Chris Fogwell are selecting PhD students for the expedition to help record thousands of measurements, assessing signs of climate change on the frozen continent

I wonder if they read this report before they left. Then again perhaps not!

Antarctic sea ice still at record high — where is springtime melt?

Meanwhile the twittersphere is having fun with these buffoons by creating film titles for the failed University of NSW holiday jaunt.

Go to twitter: #spiritofmawsonfilmtitles. Some of the suggestions:
  • The Good Ship, the Bad ‘Scientist’, and the Ugly Scam of AGW;
  • Carry on Cruising;
  • Raiders of the Lost Antarctic;
  • The Taking of Iceberg B09B;
  • AN Inconvenient Truth; 
  • Help;
  • On Cruised into the Penguins' Nest;
  • Mission Impossible starring Tom Pleasure Cruise;
  • The Nutty Professor;
How about:
  • A Midsummer Night's Nightmare;
  • Turney's Ragtime Band;
  • All About Eve Ice;
  • All that Jazz Ice;
  • Bound for Glory Ridicule
