The Australia National University (ANU) in Canberra said that it has moved a number of its climate scientists to a secure facility after they received a large number of threatening emails and phone calls.
Ian Young, ANU's vice-chancellor, told ABC national radio that the threats had worsened in recent weeks.
"Obviously climate research is an emotive issue at the present time," he said.
Unfortunately, I doubt that this phenomenon is somehow uniquelyAustralian. And given the similarity between the US and Australia (especially in media coverage...) it makes me feel more than a bit queasy about the path to carbon regulation on our end.
