    I think you are intelligent enough to know exactly what I mean!

    I'm sure they are paying a carbon tax. Did I say they weren't?

    But they probably won't let the truth get in the way of a good story, as usual! http://www.abc.net.au/news/2012-10-1...r-bill/4305908

    Two questions.

    Who is 'they'?

    Do you like the idea of money being taken from hospitals and given to the government?

    Good news! I'll be glad to see the government saving $180000 a year for this bloke's useless part time work.

    FEDERAL Opposition Leader Tony Abbott has forecast a job loss for chief climate commissioner Tim Flannery if the coalition wins power at the next election.

    Bye bye Flannery

    The newspapers.

    Nope, don't like money being taken from health, education, etc. but it happens.

    Interesting that this is the only part of my post you choose to respond to

    Do I think the figures are wrong? They would certainly be more exaggerated or twisted to suit their own agenda! Wouldn't be the first time, you know, just like Tony did...FAIL

    Would you care to respond to the original post?
    Would you agree that there has been no statistically significant warming for the last 16 years?

    The evidence clearly shows that. Would you like some links to the official datasets?

    What evidence do you have that shows that there has been warming over the last 16 years? I would love to see it.
