Could this be the most pointless and petty post ever published on a mainstream news site? A columnist/blogger who himself claims to study the science and make it accessible to the public derides the fact that someone else has produced an accessible, evidence-based summary of climate science. But the silliest part comes at the end where he tries to blame this on some horrible, biased bogeyman:
Oddly enough, iTunes offers no such help to the sceptic.
Here’s how it works, Andrew – iTunes is a repository for applications that run on Apple’s digital devices. Most of those applications are developed by third-party software developers – in this case, a Melbourne IT company demonstrated Aussie ingenuity to the world by developeing the Skeptical Science application.
iTunes is just a central place for consumers to locate apps they might like – a marketplace, if you will. As a conservative, I would have though you’d have no objections to a free market for apps.
If you want a tool summarising the arguments supporting climate change denial, write one yourself and submit it to the iTunes App Store. Or find someone else to do it. Whining about some iTunes conspiracy makes you sound a bit sad.
