Bob Carter – ETS is single worst piece of legislation foisted on Australian public

Professor Bob Carter was speaking in Bendigo last night at a climate science meeting, as the Bendigo Advertiser reports:

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.”

    In years to come people will look back with amazement at this huge con job, and political hysteria over nothing.They will also loathe and reject the political mindset of the day that pushed this garbage forward. When reality comes to the fore the left will never regain credibility. Check out the US reaction to their ridiculous Waxman-Markey (cap and trade) legislation also.Desperate times for us all, but a last throw of the dice for the green/left.
