For Zoe and Dana When I was a kid anything was possible. Despite what the experts say, it still is. The possibility of a little hot weather is the last thing you need to be afraid of.

Ms Green had a surprise visitor for us. Mr Gore has popped in to tell us about dangerous climate change.

Hello Children. I have some important news to share with you. The world is warming and we are all to blame! I’m here to tell you why and show you how dangerous it will be for all of us. This graph shows temperature for the past 1000 years and it proves that today’s temperatures are not normal! And look at how hot things are going to get!

Seems like they cherry picked the proxies. That's not science!

But Mr Gore, that graph is WRONG. Two scientists, McIntyre and McKitrick, proved so in 2003. Their corrected graph using the same data shows temperatures were hotter 1000 years ago during the Medieval Warm Period. You need to check your facts Mr Gore!

So why is the climate heating up? It’s all due to carbon dioxide from man made sources. CO2 is a green house gas. More CO2 in the atmosphere will cause the temperatures to rise. Every time your mum or dad drive their car they help heat up the planet. This graph shows how CO2 has increased since 1750. Its gone up 100 parts per million! Look how high it could go!

Mr Gore, CO2 has a logarithmic affect on temperature. Most of the rises due to CO2 have already happened. Adding more CO2 won’t do much to the temperature. Mum and Dad can drive all they want, thankyou very much!

Mr Gore this graph shows temperature and CO2 data for the last 650000 years. If CO2 is solely responsible for warming then why does a rise in temperature occur before a rise in CO2? You have things around the wrong way Mr Gore.

Not again!

Children another piece of evidence that proves CO2 is to blame is computer modelling. Computer models predict things will get much hotter if we don’t stop burning fossil fuels. In fact in 100 years the average temperature could be 6 degrees warmer! 12 1 11

Mr Gore, computer models are not evidence! Computer models have NOT been able to predict temperature changes over the last 20 years. Why would anyone trust them to predict climate 100 years into the future? Even the IPCC admit that long term prediction of future climate states is not possible.

Children the world’s leading scientists all agree that man has caused dangerous climate change. If you don’t believe me then you 12 1 should believe them! 11

Mr Gore, politics and religion are about consensus, not science. No one agreed with Darwin and Galileo but in the end scientific evidence proved them correct. It only takes one fact to falsify a theory. For instance if CO2 is responsible for global warming why is there no hot spot over the tropics?

Funny how some researchers rely on computer models of wind shear to take atmospheric temperatures when weather balloons will do just fine. Why would you use an anemometer to measure temperature?

Come on Mr Gore, even the IPCC predicts sea levels will only rise about 20 cm over the next 100 years. This is about the same rise that occurred last century. We don’t need Noah’s Ark Mr Gore, just a small brick wall. I’m not scared!

I’ll get you out of there in a second Mr Gore.

Geologists have known the climate has changed for a long time. For climate, change is the only certainty. We need to treat it like any other natural hazard and deal with it as it comes.

Children, there will be more hurricanes and more heat waves. More people will die.

Mr Gore, even if you are correct an increase in wind shear will offset higher sea temperatures leading to little or no change in hurricane activity. As for heat waves. It actually means less people will die from the cold, so it's a good thing. My nanna says the warmth helps her arthritis. I’m not scared Mr Gore.

Don’t worry Mr Gore, I’ve got you.

Honestly Mr Gore more polar bears are killed each year by hunters than climate change. If we want to help polar bears perhaps we should stop shooting them! Thankyou Mr Gore, I’m not scared anymore.

Now, how fast can you run Mr Gore?

We’re not scared anymore Mr Gore
Bye Mr Gore. Come back any time!

Marc Hendrickx has worked as a geologist since completing a BSc (Hons) at Latrobe University, Australia in 1993. His work has included making geological maps for government geological surveys in the Victorian Alps, the deserts of central Australia and in the dry plains of Western New South Wales. Since 2001 he has worked as an engineering geologist specialising in transport infrastructure. At the time of writing he was undertaking a PhD at Macquarie University As a geologist Marc sees the effects of natural climate change written into the rock record every time he steps onto an outcrop. He doesn’t need a computer model to tell him the climate’s changing. The path to a sustainable future will not be born from fear. Open your eyes and set yourself free.
