Heard on radio
Prof Professor Patrick McGorry, Australian of the year speaks to Monica Attard at the ABC. In a long interview he spoke compassionately on his subject of expertise; depression amongst the youth, and I laud him for this. The Professor, is an internationally renowned expert in adolescent mental health. However he needs to tighten up his comments in other fields, particularly Climate Change.
PATRICK MCGORRY: I just come back from Ireland and the day I arrived was about 40 degrees. It didn’t use to be like that in Victoria. Very dry. So obviously we could do more. The whole world could do more.I can remember weeks of 38deg+ in Melbourne in the sixties. That’s not Climate Change, Professor, it’s weather. Monica Attard didn’t ask for his take on the recent freeze in Europe, she just agreed. It was the ABC after all.
