IAN PLIMER HEAVEN AND EARTH PDF

This book, his view of the science of climate change, is a difficult read, with a large number of footnotes sometimes taking up half the page. The text often wanders, perhaps to use up some of the references he has accumulated. For readers unfamiliar with climate science, or science in general, this may create an impression of an expert author with a vast array of evidence to back up Ian Plimer is a professor of Geology at the University of Adelaide in Australia, specializing in mining geology. For readers unfamiliar with climate science, or science in general, this may create an impression of an expert author with a vast array of evidence to back up his writing, which is not necessarily the case. The History chapter, the one closest to his actual expertise, is a detailed account of the many changes that have occurred in climate, mainly over the past few thousand years.

A biographical note on the Ivanhoe Australia website states that Plimer "has previously been on the staff of North Broken Hill Ltd, and is a prominent Australian geologist who has spent most of his industry, consulting and scientific life working on base metal deposits, particularly in Broken Hill, epithermal gold deposits, especially in the Mediterranean, and tungsten-tin-molybdenum deposits.

He has predicted and discovered a number of epithermal gold deposits in the Mediterranean. He has 3. Plimer claims that his mining company directorships have no impact on his beliefs, [12] even though he has extensive financial interests in mining companies that would be negatively affected by any limits placed on carbon emissions.

Plimer himself has argued that the proposed Australian carbon-trading scheme could decimate the Australian mining industry, [23] and "probably destroy it totally", [24] as well as creating "massive unemployment".

Rinehart, like Plimer an AGW denier, is openly contemptuous of any attempts to constrain greenhouse gas emissions. The book was universally panned by scientists as full of errors and even accused of plagiarism. Peter Jackson of the Canadian paper, The Telegram, summarised the debate so: "For Plimer, it was an unmitigated disaster.

He fudged and distracted at every turn like a senile old goat. In the end, he refused to answer a single question put to him by Monbiot or the moderator. His credibility - and that of his book - withered away into oblivion. It is comparable to a biologist claiming that plants obtain energy from magnetism rather than photosynthesis. Geological Survey. The host responded that a UK journalist had in fact gone back to the USGS and asked it whether or not submarine volcanoes were included in its calculations, and the USGS said that they were.

Plimer responded that there are many huge undersea volcanoes which are not known about or measured. So the ocean and its volcanoes cannot be a net source of CO2; In addition, measurements show that the concentrations of two other long-lived greenhouse gases with human-related sources, methane and nitrous oxide, have increased markedly over the last years, at the same time as the increases in carbon dioxide. This is not possible due to sources from underwater volcanoes.

Asbestos In , Plimer claimed that white asbestos, known as chrysotile, is not really asbestos, whereas the U. Department of Health and Human Services calls it the most common form of asbestos. Creationists claim Plimer makes numerous scientific errors in this book. Leading up to this, Plimer was forcibly ejected by police from several public meetings at which Roberts spoke.

He was criticised for making false claims and errors in his debates with creationists by skeptic Jim Lippard.

It became a bestseller and won a Eureka Prize in He attributed this to there being "a lot of fear out there. No one wants to go against the popular paradigm. The company has a history of publishing books on "culture, justice and religion", including many books on Christianity and Catholicism in particular. Critics note that Plimer has opposed a carbon trading scheme in Australia, saying that "it would probably destroy [the mining industry] totally". Environmental groups are claimed to have filled this gap by having a romantic view of a less developed past. The book is critical of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change IPCC , which he claims has allowed "little or no geological, archeological or historical input" in its analyses.
