All Scientists are Sceptics ~Professor Bob Carter

Whenever someone asserts that a scientific question is “settled,” they tell me immediately that they don’t understand the first thing about science. Science is never settled. Dr David Deming

Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of the science of climate change is the lack of any real substance in attempts to justify the hypothesis ~Professor Stewart Franks

Climate of Change?

Read my lips: No Carbon Tax
We have seen POTUS Obama turn his back on Cap-n-Trade during the last week. Julia today says that she will push ahead with our Carbon tax to insure our future prosperity.  When people will be hit with a useless tax and  many companies will die or move off-shore, surely Ms Gillard meant to insure our future economic destruction. What happened to her pre-election promise of "No Carbon Tax." Julia should look at a recent poll in Scientific American:

There is a link to the poll in the title above.


Results included:

1. Should climate scientists discuss scientific uncertainty in mainstream forums?  Yes- 90%

3. What is causing climate change?   Natural Processes  77.5%

4. The IPCC, or Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change is
       an effective group of government representatives, scientists and other experts.   15.9%
      a corrupt organization, prone to groupthink, with a political agenda.     83.4%
     something to do with Internet protocols.   0.7%

Other questions included What should we do about climate change? 68.4% said NOTHING, and when asked how much would they be willing to pay to forestall the risk of catastrophic climate change,  8/10 replied NOTHING.
