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

Emissions of CO2

CNNMoney has published a report entitled Global Warming's "Biggest Jerks." They are
  1. Meaning Anthropogenic Global Warming;
  2. Assuming that a few degrees warming is bad;
  3. Assuming that emitting CO2 is pollution.

Here are their "worst offenders."

Notice  that the first four are China, The United States, Russia and India. None of these countries has or intends to have a price on carbon (dioxide emissions.) Australia doesn't even make the top 10. The fifth country, Japan, last December turned its back on the Kyoto agreement.

Why is it then that our PM says if we don't put a price on carbon (dioxide emissions), we will be left behind? We are like a sardine trying to steer a pod of whales.

To be fair, CNN's next graph (Link in title above) show Australia to be the biggest per capita "polluter."
