|Carter, Franks, Evans, Kininmonth|
They are commenting on the recent reports released by CSIRO/BOM and the Climate Commission.
Clearly, something is very wrong with the way in which scientific policy regarding climate change (and, for that matter, other environmental issues) is being delivered to the Australian government. Almost equally disturbing is that mainstream Australian media sources now display an almost complete incapacity to assess environmental matters objectively.
Is there any substantive new science in the science agency reports? No.
Is there any merit in the arguments for dangerous warming that are advanced in the reports? No.
Did any mainstream media organisation question the recommendations in the reports in their mainline news reporting? No.
Was there any need for, or purpose served, by the reports? Yes, but only the political one of attempting to give credence to the impending collection of carbon dioxide tax.
