The Heretic

Episode 1: The Truth about the Reef

May 21, 2020

In the first episode of The Heretic, we meet Dr Peter Ridd – a marine geophysicist, lifelong environmentalist and expert on the Great Barrier Reef – and hear about why the conventional wisdom that ‘climate change is killing the reef’ may very well be completely wrong. Peter explains why he spoke out against reef science coming out of his then-employer, James Cook University, and recalls the first complaints raised about him.

We’ll also hear more about climate change from the IPA’s Dr Jennifer Marohasy, and from Professor David Vaux of the Walter and Eliza Hall Institute about problems with a lot of scientific research in Australia.
