In my opinion this entire sorry episode goes straight to the heart of the difference between the way alarmists like Williamson see the world, and the way normal people view the world. Alarmists seem to want their models, theories and opinions to be accepted as established fact. But the reality is their shaky theories are full of poorly supported conjecture and extrapolation.
Eric Worrall on WUWT, quoted by Dellers who has criticised Williamson's facile alarmism: http://www.breitbart.com/london/2017/01/09/delingpole-how-i-totally-crushed-the-ocean-acidification-alarmist-loons/

Bankers, perhaps dismayed by the chaos they help cause in the world of finance, have taken to promoting climate alarmism in schools..
'Management staff visited selected Junior High Schools and shared information on climate change and the environment in general with the students. They also took the opportunity to form environment clubs in the schools.
Commenting, Hemen Shah, Standard Chartered CEO Ghana and Area General Manager for Central and West Africa said: “Climate change is one of the most serious threats facing the planet, and it demands urgent global action. '
Now the recent appointment ( http://www.australianclimatemadness.com/?p=4064 ) of a banker to head up the erstwhile scientific organisation, CSIRO, is beginning to suggest a pattern. Erstwhile scientists and mathematicians helped bankers and governments screw up finance with their complex derivatives using real estate debts, and now the bankers are out to get some revenge by screwing up science and education. Truly, we poor citizens need eyes in the backs of our heads to have any hope of keeping up. What are the school pupils to make of it all?
