UK climate scepticism more common

A report from BBC News By Sudeep Chand Science reporter:

The British public has become more sceptical about climate change over the last five years, according to a survey. Twice as many people now agree that "claims that human activities are changing the climate are exaggerated". Four in 10 believe that many leading experts still question the evidence. One in five are "hard-line sceptics".

What about here in Australia?
Senator Fielding asked simple questions of the two Pennys - Wong and Sackett - and they failed to give satisfactory replies. Today's Australian has a poll showing that now 22% (and rising) are against the ETS.

And in the US?
One of our members wrote to the IPCC: "I emailed the IPCC asking for the science that proves that CO2 is a pollutant. I have now received their reply that states that they can find no science in their four reports. They go on to say that the USA's EPA Clean Air Act has decreed that CO2 is a pollutant.

I also have had a reply from Mr Al McGartland of the USA's EPA but he relies on concensus, not on scientific proof."

This is the EPA that suppressed one of their top scientists - Alan Carlin's dissenting report. This is the EPA that the US Chamber of Commerce is saying have an enquiry re the science or we'll go to court.

So, the IPCC has no proof, the EPA relies on a (Non)"consensus," our Pennys can't answers questions about it. No wonder there is scepticism or is it being realistic.

When will the Main Stream Media start to do their job? When will they do some investigative journalism?
