Still slumbering in his right wing slobber. Truth will have to wait.

Unfortunately, this is a dangerous impact on Australia’s capability to recognise and deal with climate change. In my opinion, dishonest columnists such as Andrew Bolt have much to answer for.

It is scary as hell. I can’t wait for his next installment.

http://blogs.news.com.au/heraldsun/andrewbolt/index.php/heraldsun/comments/pitman_cries_poor/

“Andy on know this retard’s email address? Time for us to give him a chat for, I think. No jobs? That is the hallmark of greenies, not the sceptics. Take a look at the Sea Shepherd bunch of female canines.”

“Happy to oblige.

andy@andypitman.com

Not only was this inciting slander & witch hunting. But they got the email address wrong. Neither Fiona or AJ spent even a couple of minutes checking their facts before they wrote to Andy Pitman…the media producer.

http://www.andypitman.com/Index.html

Out of curiosty, I wrote to Andy Pitman the media producer to ask him if he had anything to do with science & had he recived any harrasing emails?

He responded quickly saying it was a case of mistaken identity & that he was being barraged by hate mail from Bolts fans. Like AJ’s letter once he got “Andy’s email address”.

“Thank you, Fiona. I have sent the following email to Professor Pitman ”

http://blogs.news.com.au/heraldsun/andrewbolt/index.php/heraldsun/comments/pitman_cries_poor/P20/

The real Andy tries to defend himself. Which was noble & brave, but equally silly on a blog like Bolts. You may as well go to a slack jaw yokels conference & debate morals & ethics.

All,

thanks for your comments on Andrew bolt’s statements.

First, no lead authors receive funding for doing IPCC. They do get airfares to attend the meetings that the Australian Government (then John Howard of course) requires them to attend. Their employers maintain their usual salary and therefore bear the cost of the lead authors role.
My statments to the ABC were therefore correct. The funding has to be used directly to get to and from the meetings – no personal salary, no personal benefit. So, my statements were currect.

Second, its interesting that you can look at my whole history of research funding. Why are the funding sources for the sceptics not so easily accessible ? Because I have nothing to hide since all I do is open to scruitiny while all the sceptics are doing is hidden.

Third, you will note a lot of my funding has been to explore non greenhouse gas contributors to climate change – so I have demonstrated that its not just CO2.

Finally if you really believe the major campagns that are attempting to undermine the IPCC and the science of global warming is not very well funded, including sustained and professional lobbying in Canberra then you believe in fairies at the bottom of the garden.

Well, “Prof” I would be happy to meet you in court to test your knowledge about basic theory associated with climate assessment. Perjury can land you in jail for upto 14 years.

And this friendly chap:

Andy, please provide a detail financial breakdown of where the massive funding for skeptics is comming from, in order to substantiate your assertion that they are receiving copious sums of money.

Otherwise, shut the hell up and stop wasting our time.

You oxygen thief!

Such a friendly & rational place.

Professor angry has some pointers for Andy from the school of common sense.

Obviously, these fanatical followers of the Church Of Al Gore have NEVER taken any high school science classes.
If they had they would know about the carbon cycle.
You know, where plants utitize carbon dioxide to produce oxygen for the humans and animals.
How dumbed down are these people?

Finally after numerous harrasing emails from bloodthirsty Bolt fans, Andy Pitman…..the Media producer responded on Bolts blog:

DISCONTINUE ALL EMAILS TO andy@andypitman.com. THIS ADDRESS DOES NOT BELONG TO PROFESSOR ANDY PITMAN. IT BELONGS TO ME, I LIVE IN THE UNITED STATES AND WANT NOTHING TO DO WITH YOU OR YOUR CAUSE. CEASE THE EMAILS IMMEDIATELY OR I WILL PURSUE ACTION AGAINST THE WRITERS OF THIS BLOG.

Not surprising these people cant get the science right, when they cant get the email address right or perform 2 minutes of checking.
