Robert M. "Bob" Carter is a research professor in the Marine Geophysical Laboratory at James Cook University, Australia. He is a geologist and marine geologist with special interests in stratigraphy and, more recently, climate change.
Like everyone associated with the anti-AGW position Bob Carter has brought the wrath of the Climate Machine down upon him due to the stridency of his views.
He's not a climate scientist, they say.
Neither is Tim Flannery. Or Al Gore. Or Leonardo Di Caprio...!
Carter is, though, a member of the one group of scientists that have a proper understanding of what has been happening over the last millions of years - geologists.
In this recent lecture Carter brings his audience up to date with the state of climate science and completely demolishes to proposition that we're in some sort of 'unprecedented' warming phase. The graphs he puts up showing rate of change in temperature will shock people who think that the rate of rise in the 20th century (or late 20th century) is abnormal.
Readers know how harsh I am on the drivel that passes for science and its proponents, who I put on a par with Lysenko and Hwang. In spite of the vicious ad hominem attacks on Carter, the Climate Faithful are yet to lay a glove on the accuracy of the body of his arguments.
