UPDATE: Was it the international journal of sour eggs? NO

ABC's report titled "Climate change scientists hit back" failed to include the title, and source of the study that was the subject of the report leaving listeners with no knowledge of where the research was published.  As the report poorly represented the research findings we also requested that ABC news post the interview with Prof. David Karoly in its entirety to its website? Here's ABC's reply, this time from "CAFF NEWS" and not ABC Audience and consumer affairs:

ABC "CAFF NEWS" reply 22/3/2010:
The report's title is: "Detection and attribution of climate change: a regional perspective."
It was published on the 5th of March by the peer review journal "Wiley Interdisciplinary Reviews". An online scientific journal which collaborates with the Royal Meteorological Society and the Royal Geographical Society.

A link to the article is:

This link has been added to the transcript of the story. (HERE)

The ABC reporter did ask Prof Karoly more questions but there was not time to run the  9 minute interview in its entirety. The questions and answers used were judged by the program makers as those which would be heard and understood while giving the essence of the story .

There are no plans at this stage to post the whole interview if indeed it remains in the system.

We have requested ABC News to provide a transcript of the interview. We don't hold our breath.
