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

Plant operators and builders have launched Supreme Court action against Lloyds seeking payment of up to $8.2 million.
The lawsuit is the latest chapter in the sorry history of the plant, which was meant to be the showpiece of the previous government's $9 billion water grid designed to "drought-proof" Queensland.
