We have seen two classic examples of climate denialism over the last week.
Firstly on the domestic front we had some manufactured controversy on how the Bureau of Meteorology gets the temperatures for the Australian continent.
On this I will outsource to the ever excellent Steve from Brisbane's blog.
Graham Redfearn shows up the ever hopeless research with regard to the denialists.
Meanwhile Matt Ridley wrote some rubbish in the WSJ. Jim Rose amongst others gave it some publicity. Jeffrey Sachs excoriated it.
All in all it showed up denialists as either very lazy or very stupid people who will go to great lengths to lie about what is happening to the climate of the world.
