The correct way ahead is for Australia to reject Labor's 'Emission Trading Scheme' for reason that it is a nonsense and has no scientific basis supporting it, and if enacted would lead to economic disaster. A new Australian Energy Policy should be formulated based on the premise that CO2 is a valuab...

GLOBAL WARMING SCIENCE HAS MOVED ON

August 12, 2008, 2:50 am News

"On global warming, public policy is where the science was in 1998. Due to new evidence, science has since moved off in a different direction. The UN science body on this matter, the IPCC, is a political body composed mainly of bureaucrats. So far it has resisted acknowledging the new evidence. But...

"Selective use of facts and data is fast becoming an art form on both sides of the climate change debate now that real money is at stake as the West ponders concrete schemes to reduce carbon emissions.

"Global warming has now got to the stage where it is only maintained by media self-censorship. If the general public ever got to know of the scandals surrounding the collection and processing of data, or that there has been no detectable warming for the last decade, the whole movement would be...

IN SCIENCE, IGNORANCE IS NOT BLISS

August 1, 2008, 10:10 am News

"I believe in global climate change, but there is no way that humans can influence the temperature of our planet to any measurable degree with the tools currently at their disposal. Any human contribution to global temperature change is lost in the noise of terrestrial and cosmic factors." Former US...

This new Green eco-religion is like a wolf in sheep's clothing and is as dangerous.

"Contrary to claims of a scientific consensus that human activity is the principal temperature driver, there are now many published reports and papers strongly disputing the IPCC analysis, including several by eminent Australian scientists. My conclusion is that the case for major government interve...
