Holy shiz. If you'd have asked me before I would have said Australia would be one place that just wouldn't happen, I have this image of Aussie being the sort of country that wouldn't allow a foreign government to interfere in their freedom of speech.

 

"Worried about a possible defamation suit".

 

I don't know anything about law but I'd have thought that if he could back up what he claims in the book with facts he couldn't be touched.

 

If there is a real chance of being sued then I don't blame the publishers for not wanting to touch it but if that's just a BS excuse because they're getting pressure from elsewhere they're pretty much proving the author's point.

This insidious shithole is reaching out its tentacles all over the world. Make no mistake, they want the world for themselves. And no, I don't have a tinfoil hat.

Give an inch and they'll take a mile... Sprenger and Cambridge shouldn't have backed down.

 

Academic integrity ought to be worth something.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
