Fielding "not convinced"
Senator Fielding says meetings with Climate Change Minister Penny Wong and chief scientist Penny Sackett have not convinced him of the science of climate change.
"I'm still open for them to have other information but from what I've seen it's not a convincing argument," he said.
"I don't know how any parliamentarian could actually vote for this legislation given that they would have trouble trying to answer a question that the Minister and the chief scientist have had trouble answering themselves."
Senator Fielding says Australia should not act until after the United Nations conference on Climate Change in Copenhagen in December.
"It is absolutely crazy for Australia to go it alone; we should definitely wait until Copenhagen," he said.
"You've got China, you've got India; we've got to wait til Copenhagen. We need to see what the rest of the world are going to do, and then Australia can respond. Because frankly, going alone is suicide."
