Another alarmist runs screaming from debate

What is it with alarmists and avoiding debate? Only yesterday it was Gore. This time it's Penny Wong's own "adviser" Will Steffen, who has turned down an invitation by Steve Fielding to attend a briefing for Senators at which Professor Bob Carter will also be speaking.
This is the second time Senator Fielding has sent a letter out to senators about climate change ahead of the vote on the Government's emissions trading scheme on August 13.

Senator Fielding has questioned whether climate change is caused by human activity because he says there is evidence which shows global temperatures are not rising in line with carbon emissions.

He wants senators to attend a briefing by Professor Bob Carter, who is well known for speaking out against the link made between human activity and climate change.

The briefing is scheduled for just one day before the Senate vote.

Senator Fielding says he also asked Professor Will Steffen of the ANU Climate Change Institute to give a briefing, but he declined.

What's wrong, mate? The debate's over, right? Science is in, surely? Should be a walk in the park to make that fool Bob Carter look a right chump in front of a bunch of pollies! Wait, I know what it must be… it's all just too easy for Will. Needs more of a challenge, I reckon…

There's a saying: "Put up, or shut up." Could be usefully employed against the warm-mongers.

  • I'd like to see the day when scientists with different views gathered together to talk about the science, without fear from the audience, or gainsayers, or politics, or their salary. When people wouldnt judge the argument on who was saying it, or the colourful depictions, on the eloquence of the speaker, but on the content and humanity of what was being said. What it used to be, and what it will be some day again.

  • They're too busy counting the money they're making mate. It's not science, it's money. My suggestion would be that income tax forms ask the question : are you willing to be taxed on your energy usage to 'save the planet'? Anyone who ticks the box, gets taxed. The rest of us can have a laugh at their gullibility.

  • Climate change vs money involved, who do you think will 'win'...

  • Going to that briefing as a AGW alarmist would be the scientific equivalent of going to a gun fight with a knife.!

  • Actually, there are plenty of government senators who are toeing the AGW line, so it would probably be a balanced audience. It's very odd that Steffen chooses not to make an appearance...
