    Thank God for the National Tertiary Education Union. Sacked professor Peter Ridd won his Federal Court action against James Cook University this month ­entirely because the university’s enterprise bargaining agreement, negotiated by the union, included a lengthy and carefully worded protection for intellectual freedom. And that is the simple fact. Ridd’s win (he was found […]

  • What David Attenborough’s climate show didn’t tell you

    • Date: 20/04/19
    • Ross Clark, The Spectator

    I had thought David Attenborough would be above resorting to the subtle propaganda, linking every adverse weather event to climate change.

    • Michael Bastasch, The Daily Caller

    The Netflix documentary series “Our Planet” is using chilling footage of walruses falling off a cliff to mislead viewers in the name of climate activism, a Canadian zoologist claimed. “Our Planet,” narrated by famed naturalist and BBC broadcaster David Attenborough, has a message: Climate change is endangering the planet. But it’s a message that comes […]

    Further to my recent post on Netflix’s Our Planet, and its claims about walruses flinging themselves off sea cliffs in Siberia, I started to wonder about the geography of the events that took place that day in 2017.
