Despite the joke of australian academics raping about climate change, it raises some serious concerns.
"Most of the people talking about climate change in the media actually know little about it (often happily admitting they are not climate scientists). Yet their opinions are given at least as much, if not more, weight than that of actual climate scientists." Jason Evans.
"In the Australian media as well as the global media, the climate change debate is often dominated by people who may have significant authority on the subject yet do not directly work directly in the field" Dan Ilic.
How scientific problems are address in the media? Is it possible to debate scientific issues without any scientific present? Why journalist gave the same credit to scientific consensus and concpiracy theory? They probably feel oblige to present both sides in order to be objective, but can they not objectivly tell the difference between facts, empirical data, scientific rationnality and empty political gesture?
At least journalists will not be able to say that scientific arguments are too complex.
