|Money down the gurgler.|
The "science consensus" is a hoax. Anthropogenic Global Warming is a hoax based on Voodoo Science. The IPCC have said that they have no proof that Carbon Dioxide (yes, it is Carbon Dioxide - NOT carbon) is causing runaway global warming (AGW).
Although they are loathe to admit it, most Australian scientists from both sides of the debate admit that there has been no warming for at least fourteen years.
Whilst most of the world are retreating from the AGW hoax, the Green Gillard Government is pushing us into the abyss.
There is a page (LINK) on the Australian Government's Dept of Climate Change... site called:
A-Z of Government programs and initiatives -
This is where your hard-earned money is going. Here is the first page:-
AAustralian Climate Change Science Program
The Australian Climate Change Science Program aims to improve our understanding of the causes, nature, timing and consequences of climate change so that industry, community and government decisions can be better informed. Administered by the Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency.
Australian Greenhouse Emissions Information System—AGEIS
The AGEIS provides detailed greenhouse gas emissions data from the National Greenhouse Accounts. Administered by The Department of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency.
Australian National Registry of Emissions Units (ANREU)
The Australian National Registry of Emissions Units (ANREU) is a system designed to meet one of Australia's commitments under the Kyoto Protocol.
BBilateral Climate Change Partnership Program
These partnerships provide opportunities for building stronger political relationships and influencing other countries’ climate change policies at the highest level.
The Biodiversity Fund supports projects that establish, restore, protect or manage biodiverse carbon stores. Funding is provided for establishing mixed species plantings in targeted areas such as areas of high conservation value, wildlife corridors, riparian zones and wetlands. Administered by the Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Populations and Communities.
CCarbon Farming Futures
Carbon Farming Futures will provide $429 million over six years to ensure that advances in emissions reduction technologies and techniques will continue the evolution of management practices in the land sector towards emissions reduction and improved productivity. These advances will allow farmers and other landholders to benefit from the economic opportunities of the Carbon Farming Initiative while assisting Australia in achieving its long term emission reduction targets. Administered by the Departments of Climate Change and Energy Efficiency and Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries.
Carbon Farming Initiative
The Carbon Farming Initiative (CFI) is a carbon offsets scheme being established by the Australian Government to provide new economic opportunities for farmers, forest growers and landholders and help the environment by reducing carbon pollution.
Carbon Farming Initiative non-Kyoto carbon fund
The Government will purchase non-Kyoto Carbon Farming Initiative credits, which cannot be purchased by companies with responsibilities under the carbon pricing mechanism.
Carbon Farming Skills
The ongoing Carbon Farming Skills initiative will ensure that landholders have access to credible, high quality advice and carbon services.
Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum (CSLF)
Carbon Sequestration Leadership Forum focuses on cooperation to develop and apply technologies for the separation and capture of carbon dioxide for its transport and long-term safe storage. Secretariat administered by the United States Department of Energy.

The CSIRO item says:
The CSIRO (Page 3) is administered by the CSIRO. Well, there's a surprise (TIC).
CSIRO undertakes extensive research into many aspects of climate change science. Administered by CSIRO.
But, if the science is settled, why do we need the CSIRO researching "climate change science?"
