Tim Lambert posted this week trying to set the record straight on claims that global warming had stopped.
I'm beginning to think that Tim is never going to be able to change the minds of those Australian journalists indulging in climate change denialism.
By October 2004 Andrew Bolt thought it possible that global warming was being caused by sun activity and by this year is inclined to believe that recent wet weather trumps climate change.
In December 2004 Michael Duffy was taking shots at the idea of man-made global warming and is still whiteanting way even now.
Also in December 2004 Tim Blair discovered where his audience wanted him to go and hasn't really deviated to date.
Neither the literary skills or the arguments of their respective denialist fan clubs have advanced in recent years and I suspect that most of those commenting in support of Andrew, Michael and Tim haven't ever had one thought beyond their original positions.
