Professor Murry Salby who is critical of AGW theory, is being disenfranchised, exiled, from academia in Australia

Phineas Fahrquar:

This terrible. I’ve read Carter’s book, “Climate: the Counter-Consensus,” and it’s a masterpiece of intelligent skepticism, just what good science should be. And now another academic is being ostracized for not going along with the dominant dogma? What the Hell is going on Down Under?

People send me stuff.

Just last week we heard that Dr. Robert Carter had been blackballed at his own university where he served as department chair, and now we have this from Dr. Murray Salby, sent via email.

Between John Cook, Stephan Lewandowsky, Ove Hoegh-Guldberg, plus Mike Marriot and his idiotic ideas, I’m beginning to think Australia is ground zero for AGW crackpottery.

This email’s accusations (if true I have independent confirmation now, title changed to reflect this – Anthony)  is quite something, it illustrates the disturbing lengths a university will go to suppress ideas they don’t agree with. So much for academic freedom at Macquarie University.

    Right now the political left and the greens are in massive trouble in Australia. There is an absolute maximum effort, all stops pulled, to suppress to the greatest extent possible any dissent from the desired view. In state election after state election, Labor has been thrown out of seats they have held for decades. In Queensland, the Labor Party was whittled down to 7 seats in the state government. That isn’t even enough to qualify as a political party for things such as state subsidized office space. The entire party delegation can arrive in a single mini-van.

    This is politics. Political allies of Labor in academia are doing their utmost to silence any voices that might act to further advance the opposition to the Labor / Green coalition. These are desperate times for the Labor party in Australia with federal elections coming up and polling suggests they are going to get “royally creamed” (wording from a Canadian news article) in the elections.

    Labor is looking at such a dramatic loss as to possibly lose influence in Australia for decades and the rent-seekers are afraid. Very afraid.
