My hit, your myth

Australian Financial Review

22nd June 2007


Letters from Mike Martin and Brent Howard ("Climate truths are not subject to vote", June 20 and "Moore fails to hail climate specialists", June 21) bring to mind the now dated 1967 hit song I'm a believer by the Monkees. 


The letters' simple minded endorsement of a claimed majority view of scientists on the global warming cause parallels the opening lines "I thought love was only true in fairy tales" to the closing lines "Not a trace of doubt in my mind". 


The inspired Monkeemania that followed lasted only a few months.
