Ian Plimer: Climate change denier AND annoying git

Monbiot/Plimer debate: Update

It would appear from Ian Plimer’s latest response in the back and forth with UK Gardian columnist George Monbiot that Plimer has no intention of taking seriously either the climate change issue – or his commitment to debate it in good faith.

Plimer had earlier agreed to answer a series of questions relating to his new book, Heaven and Earth, as a starting point in a debate with Monbiot. Instead of doing so, however, the Aussie professor has chosen instead to submit a host of unanswerable science questions to Monbiot.

This is an annoying dodge, transparently designed to distract everyone from the fact that Professor Plimer can’t – or won’t – account for the content of his own book.
