Steve Fielding: we haven't had a debate on the science
The Victorian MP, who branded the Greens "fanatical" believers in climate change, yesterday spent 45 minutes drilling White House climate change adviser Dr Joseph Aldy on the subject during his self-funded trip to Washington DC.
"I wouldn't call myself a sceptic or an extremist," Fielding said after the meeting.
"The Greens are in the extreme camp and like any fanatical group, they're locked into ideology," he said.
"I'm an engineer so when someone asks what is my view, I look at both sides and like many Australians, I've gone along accepting that one side of the story is the complete story," he said.
"So far I don't think there's been a real debate about the science," Fielding said.
No wonder Fairfax and the ABC are reluctant to depart from the alarmist editorial agenda - people might actually start thinking for themselves. Good on you, Senator.
UPDATE: Just to demonstrate the swing in Senator Fielding's views, he actually won an ACM ICOTD Gong back in February - how times change!
