Bob Carter - ETS is single worst piece of legislation foisted on Australian public
He said Australians were being conned, as the bill was aimed at carbon dioxide rather than carbon, and carbon dioxide was not a pollutant.
Professor Carter said the public should have access to balanced views on climate change.
Twenty years of intensive research and great expenditure had produced no compelling evidence that humans have had a significant effect on climate.
"I have been described as a sceptic. I am not a sceptic, I am a scientist, and all good scientists should be sceptical.
"I would rather be described as a climate agnostic."
"If the bill is implemented, carbon dioxide emission will be reduced but the cost will be $3000 a head each year in taxes for every Australian.
"And the temperature change will be 0.001C by the year 2100."
