  1. There goes the credibility and scientific objectivity of Chris Turney. What an incredible conflict of interest. He, through his family, has a vested interest in all this ‘mumbo jumbo’ about the dangers of man made global warming being accepted as fact, for his family would potentially stand to gain financially from it all.

  2. Here’s his Linkedin profile:
    http://au.linkedin.com/pub/chris-turney/25/8a1/926

    He attended the University of East Anglia. That place sounds familiar for some reason.

    From his personal website: http://www.christurney.com/
    “…I helped set up a carbon refining company called Carbonscape which has developed technology to fix carbon from the atmosphere and make a host of green bi-products, helping reduce greenhouse gas levels.”

    He’s not exactly trying to hide it, because really, who is going to stop him?

  4. And he hires his wife for the trip… http://www.spiritofmawson.com/aae-science-leaders/

    Brings the kids (don’t know if they were getting paid).

    And raises money from the public to fund it (luckily not very successfully http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/help-support-antarctic-science-and-exploration )

    Extraordinary!

    Imagine the uproar if a corporate person had this many conflicts of interest. Even Australian PM Tony Abbott told his Ministers not to hire in the family.

    Gore’s Global Warming Secret

    You’ll never guess what initially inspired Al Gore’s “temperature” mania – the one that’s raised our tempers.
    Well, Gore is from Tennessee where you can hear Bible belt preachers warning about “Hell fire” in the next life.
    And Gore, concerned about this life, is surrounded by those who also know about the prediction in Revelation (chapter 16) of the coming time when a change in the sun will result in humans being “scorched with great heat”!
    It wouldn’t be convenient if folks were to discover that Gore, a liberal, was influenced by the handbook closely associated with Christian fundamentalists!
    If Tennessee fundy preachers could look at the same predictions-packed apocalyptic book and stretch forward in time some future events, Gore could surely do the same thing and stretch forward the “great heat” and turn it into cold cash.
    All of us are well aware of the incredible influence that the Gore-orrhea plague has had on the whole world including the White House!
    But Gore’s overlooked another Bible verse which says that “there is nothing hid that shall not be revealed.”
    The real “inconvenient truth” is that the SS Al Gore is now stuck in ice – and what we need is a Gorebreaker!
