About the book

Climate Change: The Facts 2017 contains 22 essays by internationally-renowned experts and commentators, including Dr Bjorn Lomborg, Dr Matt Ridley, Professor Peter Ridd, Dr Willie Soon, Dr Ian Plimer, Dr Roy Spencer, and literary giant Clive James. The volume is edited by Dr Jennifer Marohasy, Senior Fellow at the Institute of Public Affairs. Fourteen of the contributors currently hold or have held positions at a university or a scientific research organisation.

 

Dr Jennifer Marohasy said, “Climate Change: The Facts 2017 presents the case for climate change policies to be based on scientific evidence and it reveals how many of the potential policy responses to climate change are often wildly disproportionate compared to their potential cost.”

“However, our understanding of how the climate operates is incomplete and it is critically important to challenge the view that the planet is facing a global warming catastrophe.”

 

Climate Change: The Facts 2017 addresses a range of issues including the science of climate change, the homogenisation and manipulation of temperature data, the economic and social impact of climate change policy proposals, and the way climate change is presented by the media and portrayed in popular culture,” said Dr Marohasy.

 

About the editor

Dr Jennifer Marohasy is a Senior Fellow with responsibilities for Climate Change in the Research Program at the IPA.

 

Dr Marohasy has published in prestigious scientific and law journals over the last few years, these have included: Atmospheric Research, Advances in Atmospheric Research, Wetlands Ecology and Management, Human and Ecological Risk Assessment, Public Law Review and Environmental Law and Management. She has also written for various newspapers and magazines including The AustralianThe Courier Mail, The Herald Sun, and for ten years was a fortnightly columnist for Fairfax Media’s rural flagship, The Land. Dr Marohasy remains a regular contributor to e-journal On Line Opinion.

 

Dr Marohasy first worked for the IPA between 2003 and 2009; writing a seminal paper that showed rising-salinity in the Murray River was contrived – a product of computer modelling. Actual salinity levels had been falling for over 20-years as a consequence of successful government-sponsored drainage management programs in irrigations areas.

 

Between 2009 and 2015 Dr Marohasy was involved with various university research programs. Her re-appointment at the IPA in August 2015 followed the termination of an adjunct position at Central Queensland University following the ousting of Bjorn Lomborg from the University of Western Australia. Her work at CQU was wholly funded by the B. Macfie Family Foundation, and this continues to be the source of funding for her employment at the IPA.

 

Dr Marohasy describes herself as a utilitarian libertarian: she much prefers appeals to reason, logic and evidence over authority and consensus.
