Fran Kelly sounded confused, uncomprehending and disappointed in an interview this morning with scientist John Lyman from the Joint Institute of Marine and Atmospheric Research at Hawaii University. Her idea to continue with more global warming alarmism sort of back-fired. She chose what in the trade one calls “bad talent”.
The scientist illustrated just how bad ocean warming was by telling Fran that it equalled 500 one hundred watt light bulbs burning for 16 years for every human on Earth, gasp! or equal to 2 billion Hiroshima bombs tsk,tsk!
When asked about the implications, Lyman feebly replied that that was not his forte.
I seem to remember that ocean warming goes in cycles of well over a hundred years. So what this present warming has to do with anthropogenic warming is anyone’s guess. Clearly, there is nothing we can do about it today. But, for the ABC, whatever…
