Dennis Jensen tries to table peer reviewed science papers.

Some extracts:

As the only PhD qualified scientist in this parliament, I have watched with dismay as the local and international scientific communities and our elected leaders have taken a seemingly benign scientific theory and turned it into a regulatory monolith designed to solve an environmental misnomer. With a proper understanding of the science, I believe we would not even be entering into this carbon tax debate.

To put it simply, the carbon tax, with all its regulatory machinations, is built on quicksand. Take away the dodgy science and the need for a carbon tax becomes void. I do not accept the premise of anthropogenic climate change, I do not accept that we are causing significant global warming and I reject the findings of the IPCC and its local scientific affiliates.
.....
I would happily debate the science with any member opposite but I know they are too gutless to take me on.
......
Initially, the so-called 'consensus scientists' rejected the theory that there has been no temperature increase in the last decade. They are now coming to the realisation that they have to deal with it, so we get peer reviewed papers, papers that Al Gore said did not exist, like: 'Reconciling anthropogenic climate change with observed temperature 1998-2008' and 'Trend analysis of satellite global temperature data'. They both accept that there has been no temperature increase this decade.
.....
If the science is settled, ask the scientists if they believe we should stop funding the IPCC and anthropogenic global warming science. 
.......
The whole point of this carbon tax is to change behaviour to reduce emissions, which means there must be pain if we are to move from an efficient industry to one that is less efficient. The simple fact is that the Gillard government is being deliberately disingenuous on this issue as they know full well that they will never be able to compensate the people adequately or economically when it becomes an ETS. In the national interest it is time to move past the politics of fear, such as, 'You need to be heavily taxed or the Great Barrier Reef or Kakadu gets it!' In conclusion, for all these and multiple other reasons, the Gillard government should not pass this legislation without the consent of Australians.
Madam Deputy Speaker Burke, I seek leave to table these peer reviewed science reports.


Leave not granted.

Does the Labor Government seek the truth in the Science behind the debate? Evidently not.

Atlasgate-Times two

 
Cartoons by Josh
The publishers of The Times Comprehensive Atlas of the World have made two controversial errors.

The First as reported by Fox News here was when they suggested Greenland lost 15% of its permanent ice cover over the last twelve years.
Climate-gate, Himalaya-gate, and now … Atlas-gate? Publishers of the Times Comprehensive Atlas of the World scrambled Tuesday to correct a controversial statement that Greenland had lost 15 percent of its permanent ice cover over the last 12 years -- an assertion scientists labeled "incorrect and misleading."The claim came in a HarperCollins press release on the publication of the 13th edition of the atlas, stating that global warming was "turning Greenland 'green.'
It's ironic that the Medieval Warm Period, denied by the pushers of AGW, was when parts of Greenland actually did turn green (www.greenland.com)
Erik the Red's discovery of Greenland
It is for this reason that in the same year he sailed west and discovered a country with an inviting fjord landscape and fertile green valleys. He was extremely impressed with the new country's resources and he returned to Iceland to spread the word of "The green land".

Erik the Red clearly had great powers of persuasion because in 985 he set sail once more from the volcanic island leading a fleet of 25 ships on course for Greenland. Onboard were around 500 men and women, domestic animals and all the other elements required to create a new existence in a new country
.
Now we have a quote from a Times Atlas spokesman saying that they are inventing the future:
MALE, September 21 (HNS) – The Times Comprehensive Atlas of the World will completely omit Maldives in its upcoming 14th edition, unconfirmed reports say.

British newspaper The Daily Telegraph reported that the Times Atlas, one of the most widely used atlas in the world, will omit Maldives, Tuvalu – an island nation located midway between Hawaii and Australia – and major parts of Bangladesh in order to convey the “emotional truth” about “man-made climate change”.

The newspaper quoted Times Atlas spokesperson David Rose as saying that the decision to omit Maldives, Tuvalu and major parts of Bangladesh may not be strictly geographically accurate.

It is a little hard to comprehend the Comprehensive Atlas.
