There are quite a few of these anti-AGW-Alarmists floating about Oz, and Prof. Carter was certainly one of the most entertaining. Here is how Jennifer Marohasy begins her remembrance of Dr. Carter.
Nobody Lives in a World Climate: Professor Bob Carter 1942-2016
By jennifer on January 21, 2016 in Information
OUTSPOKEN critic of catastrophic global warming theory, Bob Carter, died in Townsville on Tuesday.
Professor Carter did not like the term sceptic, he considered himself a rationalist, and popular usage of the term ‘climate change’ a tautology. As he wrote frequently: the geological record tells us that climate always changes. In Professor Carter’s passing we have lost a person who believed in value-free science.
When he was still directing the Marine Geophysical Laboratory at James Cook University, Professor Carter spent an evening with me at his home in Townsville poring over a single chart that was a proxy record of New Zealand’s climate over the last several thousand years. The time series data had been printed out on a long and continuous roll of paper: longer than the kitchen table so the end of the chart, that portion representing the present, was often dangling somewhere near the floor.
UPDATE: Here is one of Prof. Carter’s recent talks, from ICCC10 — the Heartland Institute’s 10th International Conference on Climate Change — held last June in Washington. It’s entitled “The Counter-consensus: Adaptation Versus Mitigation.” (The Heartland Institute’s page listing and linking to all the talks at the Conference, is here.)
