    “In a debate as complex as climate change, in which many Australian newspapers are engaged in a campaign of deliberate deception”

    Now aint that the truth!

    Your editorial comments: ‘all we need is an “Independent climate Change Authority to advise Government using their expertise”…
    Yeah! Sure!…are you really sure that is that answer to a considered, educated response to the issues that arise…
    ‘independent’ authorites set up by governments have traditionally shown to be just an addition of ‘Fat Cats’ to the government gravy train.
    Who will be appointed as a truly ‘independent authority’? I thought we needed to prune the public service (consultants/contractors)…not inflate it!

    Why are we (you) perceived to be so niave?

    Tony Abbott seems to be hell bend to derail the Carbon Tax.
    On behalf of a clean Australia for future generations:
    STOP Tony’ sAbbottage!
