Most readers will have heard by now that Bob Carter passed away in Townsville last night, following a severe heart attack last Friday. Our thoughts go to his family at this unutterably sad time.
Bob’s passing is a devastating blow for climate realists around the world who looked to him for counsel and leadership in the fight against the anti-science madness that passes these days for climate science.
About ten years ago, when I was beginning to look into global warming, as we still called it, Bob somehow found my web site and immediately wrote to me. He said you’re doing very well and how did we miss you? I was proper pleased, as though I had been allowed to sit at the top table. Bob instructed Terry Dunleavy to enrol us in the Climate Science Coalition forthwith. His words and enthusiasm are with me still, though he has gone.
He will be sadly missed, for a replacement must be highly improbable. Jo Nova has posted a wonderful tribute.
