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

Environment Conference, Sydney.

AT the Australian Environment Foundation 2012 Conference, there was an array of great speakers.

First up was an very interesting address by Alan Oxley.
 Oxley "served as Australian Ambassador to the GATT, the predecessor of the World Trade Organisation from 1985 to 1989, and was the first Australian to serve as GATT Chairman. Prior to that, he represented Australia in Singapore, at the United Nations in New York and in Geneva. He played a key role in creating the ground-breaking coalition of agricultural exporters, the Cairns Group."

Next up was multi-degree-ed Dr David Evans talking about the "science of the absurb."
Previous believer in the AGW hypothesis,  Dr Evans realised, when working for the Department of Climate Change (nee The Australian Greenhouse Office) that it was voodoo science.

David was followed by Dick Warburton (link) a lion from industry and industry who has been an advisor to government.

Dick is currently the chairman of Westfield Retail Trust, Magellan Flagship Fund, Citigroup and Manufacturing Australia. He was replaced from a committee by Penny Wong when he wouldn't bow down to the man-made global warming hoax.


After Dick, Prof Bob Carter deviated from his usual serious but entertaining presentation, to present his awards to the alarmists, including his "p*ss into the wind award." The honours were awarded to, inter alia, PM Gillard and Parliamentary break-in expert, Greg Combet.

Stephen Cooper  of the Acoustic Group followed with some revealing data re wind farm noise levels. So as to guarantee that there are no adverse impacts from wind farms then the separation distances must be increased.

After lunch we were treated to a entertaining and enlightening lecture  on water security and climate change by Assoc Professor Stewart Franks followed by a drier, but equally informative address by Dr Walter Starck, one of the pioneers in the scientific investigation of coral reefsand studies on the worldwide distribution of the billfishes.

A pleasant Tall Ship sail on the Harbour followed.
