Jan 29, 2004 – Skeptic author John Daly dies

greenhousetrapOn this day 13 years ago John Daly (not to be confused with John Daley, who we will meet later) died.  Daly was the author of The Greenhouse Trap, published in 1989.  It was the first (and for a long time only, I think) Australian book to deny anthropogenic global warming.  Daly went on speaking tours, was on the radio a bit crossing swords with scientists and environmental advocates.  He didn’t get to present his, ah, ‘research’ at the 1990 ANZAAS meeting, which apparently irked him.
