The CSIRO once had a proud record for quality research in basic and applied science. In rural research this involved productive partnerships with universities and the state departments of agriculture. Times change. Politics intrudes, also content-free managers. Valuable traditions fade away.
The climate scam could be the last nail in the coffin of the scientific credibity of the CSIRO. A scathing report is available on line, prepared by Malcolm Roberts of the Galileo Movement, at the invitation of Steve Austin, host on ABC-Radio 612. The author is apparently a hyperactive investigator: among other things he has conducted a forensic examination of the performance of Australia’s leading academic climate scientists and activists.
The report notes some of the features of the IPCC and other aspects of the climate movement including the role of Al Gore, then proceeds to a detailed examination of the CSIRO contribution. That looks important and ok to me, however at this stage I am not buying into the allegations about the role of the international banking fraternity in the climate scam.
The author has given me permission to post the Executive Summary however I won’t do that, it is easy enough to hit the link and get into the report directly.
A bit of context
CSIRO’s misrepresentations are so alarming that before presenting my analysis it’s necessary to provide context. The pain of discovering the truth about an Aussie science icon is deeply disturbing. CSIRO developed a justifiably proud reputation over many decades and contains many fine, dedicated scientists and people across disciplines. Why though does CSIRO corrupt science? Why does CSIRO’s executive management contradict empirical scientific evidence? What does it reveal about Australian national governance?
Methodically using solid data, sound analysis and considered judgment to analyse CSIRO identifies core issues. Understanding gives birth to solutions that provide hope and reassurance. We can convert despair to celebration of the human spirit and use this huge opportunity to secure a far wealthier and fairer future in Australia.
A Jo Nova Update
WA Opposition leader wants a bit each way.
Mark McGowan , the West Australian Labor leader hoping to win the election in March and become Premier of WA, announced that he doesn’t like the Carbon Tax. But apparently he does like emissions trading, showing that he’s as keen as anyone to help large financial institutions reap nice profits for little risk, and no benefit.
