It preserves the holocene era and the rises and falls, and correspond more with glacio-eustatic (ice equivalent) sea-level changes, rather than changes in land masses.During the coldest days of the last ice age (known as a glacial maximum) 20,000 years ago, the oceans were 125m lower than today.And 10% of that is apparently due to an isostatic “adjustment”. If Australian sea levels keep falling at this rate, we might really need to save That Reef.
He takes the risk of informing her that she should cancel her operation as Paterson was not to be trusted.
Most people may not understand what extraordinary professional bravery that would take.
Amidst growing concerns about Paterson’s practice Leyton had stopped referring patients to him.
That’s the action of a good doctor concerned for his patient’s welfare.
He does everything he can to ensure that this is properly investigated and remedied. He appears in person on television to say in the clearest terms that the reason given to him for not suspending Paterson was the potential for financial loss to Spire.
I can think of no reason for Dr Leyton claiming this other than that it was the truth.
This last gasp of disbelief from Knights is a classic example of Upton Sinclair’s dictum: “It’s difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it.” The following statement was sent to the Tonight programme by “a spokesperson for Will Knights”: who had “absolutely no recollection of making the comments attributed to him and is adamant he would not have said anything so wholly inappropriate”. Next, Leyton asked Knights for an independent audit of Paterson’s patients by a breast surgeon.
Instead, an in-house audit was conducted by the breast care nurse, “Paterson’s closest associate” (Verita report).
Leyton then arranged for his patient to have a second and a third opinion. Paterson was about to embark on major surgery on a patient who had nothing wrong with her.
