Missing News: No Need to Panic About Global Warming

ABC News have previously provided reports involving letters signed by scientists that make a political point (eg., Here, Here and Here).
Why is this one missing?

No Need to Panic About Global Warming
There's no compelling scientific argument for drastic action to 'decarbonize' the world's economy.
A candidate for public office in any contemporary democracy may have to consider what, if anything, to do about "global warming." Candidates should understand that the oft-repeated claim that nearly all scientists demand that something dramatic be done to stop global warming is not true. In fact, a large and growing number of distinguished scientists and engineers do not agree that drastic actions on global warming are needed.
Read the rest in the Wall Street Journal.

Update ABC get around to reporting something and include this outstanding but of hypocrisy from the Prince of Precaution, climate commissioner and Mammologist Tim Flannery:
TIM FLANNERY: They are not all scientists. There are some engineers, there are astronauts. It sort of a bit of mix actually as well as a lot of retired scientists in there so no, this sort of thing doesn't really surprise me.

Simon at ACM has more...

  1. now aunty...lets get the scientists like Kininmoth and Plimer BACK! and their views and science aired for some real UNbiased reports.
    I have lost faith in ABC to provide any unbiased truth in the last few years, so few of your staff have the guts to think for themselves , so many crowd followers its been embarrasing and enraging.
