My brother, Jerry, is a genius. ... He’s a humble genius.Danielle Smith on the other hand:
... My brother is a world-renowned geophysicist at Harvard University.
... he has examined the impact of climate change on sea levels.
... My brother is not a zealot. He is a careful, judicious scientist.
... The same cannot be said about Wildrose party leader Danielle Smith, a former newspaper columnist, and researcher for the notoriously partisan Fraser Institute.So, for Mitrovica, there is no debate. His genius brother told him so. Apparently he hadn't heard of world-renowned James Lovelock's recent reversal:
... Smith assured Albertans that she “will continue to watch the debate in the scientific community.”
..Perhaps the “brilliant” Wildrose leader will now come to her senses about climate change instead of parroting and pandering to wilful ignorance.
“The problem is we don’t know what the climate is doing. We thought we knew 20 years ago. That led to some alarmist books – mine included – because it looked clear-cut, but it hasn’t happened,” Lovelock said.Maybe Mitrovica only reads consensus media, like the Ottawa Citizen, which didn't say a peep about Lovelock.
