Guest essay by Eric Worrall
The university choices faced by my fellow Queenslanders leave much to be desired if you want to avoid being indoctrinated to global warming mantras. Here is a rundown of choices.
My native Australia prides itself on the quality of its educational offerings. We have a range of fascinating options for students seeking a higher education.
If you like living and studying in the sunshine, the premier University in Queensland is The University of Queensland, which supports scientists like John Cook, who produced the infamous 97% climate consensus survey, which you aren’t allowed to examine in detail.
If University of Queensland is not quite your thing, you could elect to attend James Cook University, which recently ejected Bob Carter, even taking away his library pass. http://joannenova.com.au/2013/06/jcu-caves-in-to-badgering-and-groupthink-blackballs-politically-incorrect-bob-carter/
If you want to be educated in Sydney, home of the year 2000 Summer Olympics, your choice might be Macquarie University, which recently terminated skeptic Murry Salby, under some in my opinion rather strange circumstances – stranding Salby in Paris, after holding a meeting in his abscence. http://joannenova.com.au/2013/08/murry-salby-responds-to-the-attacks-on-his-record/
If Macquarie is not quite to your taste, but you like New South Wales, you could try the University of New South Wales, home of the Ship of Fools. http://wattsupwiththat.com/2014/01/22/spiritofmawson-ship-of-fools-apologize-for-mess-face-recovery-costs/
Of course, if you set your sights on the very pinnacle of Australian academia, you could try the Australian National University, whose director of the Australian National Centre for Public Awareness of Science recently demanded we should ignore the facts when it comes to climate science. http://wattsupwiththat.com/2014/03/15/australian-national-university-forget-the-climate-facts-we-need-opinions/
If you fancy the cooler Mediterranean climate of Australia’s southern coast, Melbourne University might be your choice – the Melbourne University which hosted to the Gergis study, $300,000 worth of effort which lasted 3 weeks before it had to be pulled due to a major flaw. http://joannenova.com.au/2012/06/300000-dollars-and-three-years-to-produce-a-paper-that-lasted-three-weeks-gergis/
If none of these Universities meet your requirements, you could go West, and try the University of West Australia, former home of our old friend Lewandowsky. UWA’s vice chancellor recently refused to release data to McIntyre, because he didn’t like McIntyre or something. http://wattsupwiththat.com/2014/04/03/a-stunning-revelation-from-a-uwa-vice-chancellor-paul-johnson-over-access-to-lewandowsky-poll-data/
So, which Australian university would you choose for your kids?
