Is Professor Murry Salby who is critical of AGW theory, being disenfranchised, exiled, from academia in Australia? | Watts Up With That?

U.S. Coal: Vast, Market Ready (Part I) — MasterResource
“The United States has enough coal reserves to last at least another 250 years, with reserves that are over one-and-one-half times greater than our nearest competitor, Russia, and over twice that of China. [Including] … Alaska, which contains more coal reserves than all of the lower 48 states combined … the U.S. has enough coal to last 9,000 years at today’s consumption rate.”

Articles: Net-Zero Busybodies
Mr. Connolly and his friends are examples of what Thomas Sowell calls the "busybody elite" in his excellent series, Mindset of the Left. They have no building expertise and no money in the game, but they presume to dictate building standards to contractors and investors, and they demand that future tenants of these buildings join the front lines of the war against global warming. A good word for their attitude is "paternalism," defined in my dictionary as "the policy or practice on the part of people in positions of authority of restricting the freedom and responsibilities of those subordinate to them in the subordinates' supposed best interest."

The organization in every doubter's cross hairs is the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, because it not only has the temerity to put "climate change" in its title but it was created by the United Nations, a favorite target of scorn. The panel says its global warming evidence is irrefutable, but there's a whole lot of refuting going on.
