The Australian's War on Science

From July, 2006, to January, 2013, Australian blogger, Tim Lambert posted 81 articles in a series he named, "The Australian's War on Science".  The name commemorates the cherry picked, distorted and at time egregiously false reporting of science, especially climate science in The Australian newspaper.  This biased, and often factually incorrect attack on climate science by the Australian was also noted by Robert Manne in his Quarterly Essay on the Murdoch press.  As a fairly long term reader of The Australian, I have notice the shocking standards of reporting on climate science in The Australian independently.
