    Vague understanding. I'm not saying there is 'no' merit to their work, just no merit into having a separate office looking solely into that work. I have a friend who works in one of the BS departments and it's a crock... The amount of money that is spent on traveling to BS interstate conferences is appalling.

    I'm not an Abbot lover by any means but the article in the link smacks to me of extremely biased 'journalism.' I doubt the Accuracy of several points...

    That is where we differ, I think science is extremely important, this government does not and have made it very clear that is their POV. This isn't just an attack on a few offices, this is an attack on science starting at the grass roots - in public schools, all the way up to uni and beyond. Utterly ludicrous.

    I agree with you, it is biased, I don't doubt that all that stuff that has happened, but one of two things is going on either a) They are choosing to not mention any of the good things the government has done or b) there *are* no good things this government has done. I am beginning to think it is the latter to be honest.

    I am actually a water scientist. There is so much scientific research and work happening overseas and interstate in different water treatment methods alone... yes this is something that we need to be at the top of the playing field with to ensure we continue to have clean, SAFE water to drink

    But you don't even know what they do but feel for some reason that you have a right to a strong opinion about it. At least she knows what they actually do!

    Sheesh, water science is so bloody important, maybe those who don't think so should take about a 4 hour drive from the city and come see for yourself.
    Climate science is so bloody important too, and the climate commission was the first thing to get the chop under the Abbott government - see the pattern emerging?

    Or any water at all. Obviously clean safe water is not a priority for some people.
