"A broadcaster is in trouble when it, rather than the news that it carries, becomes the story. And thus it now often is with [Australia's] ABC. Why are today’s media directors and reporters so incapable of making accurate critical judgements on environmental issues. It is a commonplace that the mainstream media distort the public debate on environmental issues of the day. A case in point is the continuing uncritical alarmism about allegedly human-caused global warming, at a time when the globe has been cooling for ten years and human causation remains chimerical." Professor Bob Carter, in Quadrant Online.
