Seldom have so few cost so many so much!

"It is a remarkable fact that despite the worldwide expenditure of perhaps
US$50 billion since 1990, and the efforts of tens of thousands of scientists
worldwide, no human climate signal has yet been detected that is distinct
from natural variation."

Bob Carter, Research Professor of Geology, James Cook University, Townsville

"A major problem has been the co-option of climate science by politics,
ambition, greed, and what seems to be a hereditary human need for a
righteous cause."

"What better cause than "saving" the planet, especially if one can get
ample, secure funding at the same time?"

William Happer, Cyrus Fogg Brackett Professor of Physics, Princeton
University.

"The claim is that the temperature has changed from ~288.0 to ~288.8 K in
about 150 years, which, if true, means to me  that the temperature has been
amazingly stable, and both human health and happiness have definitely
improved in this ‘warming’ period,".

Nobel Laureate Dr. Ivar Giaever:

"If climate has not "tipped" in over 4 billion years it’s not going to tip
now due to mankind. The planet has a natural thermostat"

Richard S. Lindzen, Atmospheric Physicist, Professor of Meteorology MIT,
Former IPCC Lead Author

"A core problem is that science has given way to ideology. The scientific
method has been dispensed with, or abused, to serve the myth of man-made
global warming."

"The World Turned Upside Down", Melanie Phillips

"Computer models are built in an almost backwards fashion: The goal is to
show evidence of AGW, and the "scientists" go to work to produce such a
result. When even these models fail to show what advocates want, the data
and interpretations are "fudged" to bring about the desired result"

"The World Turned Upside Down", Melanie Phillips

"Ocean acidification looks suspiciously like a back-up plan by the
environmental pressure groups in case the climate fails to warm: another try
at condemning fossil fuels!"

Before attacking hypothetical problems, let us first solve the real problems
that threaten humanity. One single water pump at an equivalent cost of a
couple of solar panels can indeed spare hundreds of Sahel women the daily
journey to the spring and spare many infections and lives.

Martin De Vlieghere, philosopher

"All it takes to find oneself called a ‘denier’ is to seek a sense of
proportion about environmental problems"

Mark Lynas, The God Species

Sacred cows: Public transport

Posted one year ago:

"I noticed in the NSW budget that NSW was spending $7.1 billion on
public transport yet ‘only’ $4.4 billion on roads. Yet only 26 per cent
of adults use public transport for commuting (cf Melbourne 18%). On the

face of it, using government spending as the yardstick, private car

transport is actually *six* *times* more cost-effective than public

transport".

Is public transport another Green-led sacred cow?

Are buses and trains *really* cost effective? Has there ever been a
debate on this or is it just taken as a given?
