Yes. This is what he said:
"For the first years we won't notice, but as I said before, after
a hundred years the deviation will be probably in the order of
one minute and thirty seconds, and a quarter of an hour after
one thousand years, and maybe one hour after three thousand or
four thousand years."
The ABC reporter got it right - he asserts linearity. I'm amazed
that noone on this list picked up that glaring error.
Approximately one hour after 600 years is the canonical figure.
