    Who 'denies the climate'? That statement alone highlights how much this 'science' has warped the english language. Just like 'carbon' (the solid element) is dangerous to the environment.

    You can always spot someone with a flawed argument when they argue semantics. Beep, next question please.

    We agree! I too hope investment is made in main******, credible science - ya know, empirical evidence 'n' all. The stuff that makes planes fly, lights turn on, cures illnesses and builds technology advances. The stuff that 97% of scientists pursue. You never know, with sufficient investment in non-pseudo science Australia may even have it's own space program, like NASA!! How exciting would that be!

    .
    I can't believe there are still people that think all a minister does is allocate money to program's. They make complex decisions that affect the future of our country. Science reaches into almost everyone's life in one way or another, ******lining portfolio's just reduces the ability for robust, considered policy decisions.

    And I'm guessing conflicts of interest.

    Rest assured, the CSIRO won't vanish overnight because there is not a politician in Canberra without the word 'Science' in the title.
    Phew, thanks for explaining it to me. I guess I'll just stop worrying my pretty little head! So a ministerial role that has existed for over 80 years was unnecessary after all! Fancy that!

    Yup, there's just no need for science schmience, now we have Tony at the helm, he and his magical fairy in the sky will see that everyone's taken care of according to the one true word of his old mate upstairs.

    Its a pity no one can agree on the one true word. I wonder if Jebus mentioned climate change if Tony would be worried . Then again I think there was some stuff about being kind and giving to the poor. Tony has missed a lot of memos.
