Climate Change-Carbon Demonisation


The science of climate change/global warming is most certainly not settled. In recent months we have had:-


Locally (in Australia) we have had our own Productivity Commission's debunking of the alarmist nature of the Stern Report to the UK Government, chiefly through the use of widely criticised, excessively low, discount factors; and the beautifully expressed paper by David Smith explaining the essential nature and value of carbon to mankind's welfare. 

Notwithstanding these developments and the fact that anything Australia does would, in any event, have negligible impact on global atmospheric carbon dioxide levels, we now have the Gillard Government establishing a Committee of "true believers" to determine the best means of putting a price on carbon! 

What a strange world we live in.
