Climate Changers Seek to Silence Opponents

Scientists who believe in anthropogenic (man-made) Climate Change have asked the World Conference of Science Journalists at a recent meeting in Melbourne, to stop airing the views of climate change sceptics in the media as they may only be serving to keep the global warming controversy alive.

Kevin Hennessy, a lead scientist with the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and a with Australian research body, CSIRO, said yesterday that

"Media attention on the view of a handful of climate change sceptics amplifies their opinions and implies that there is little agreement about the basic facts of global warming".

And the Greenies wonder why folk are getting fed up with them.

Guys - if your arguments are so strong (i'm agnostic on the issue but prefer to err on the side of caution), then surely you would be eager to debate them in public?
