Geologist and earth scientist Ian Plimer says the globe is not facing a climate emergency, telling Sky News Australia that “we are actually still living in an ice age.”
Professor Plimer’s comments come after Extinction Rebellion protesters have been calling on the government to declare a climate emergency – something the scientist said isn’t necessary.
“We live in horribly boring times,” he said.
“We are not in a period of extinction. We’re not living in a period of extraordinary climate – we’re actually living in a benign climate.”
“We are actually still living in an ice age.”
