Federal Liberal MP Dr Dennis Jensen has long called for a royal commission into the science of climate change. It would encourage debate and apply scrutiny to some of the claims of these warmists. There is now a proposition by the state liberal party to conduct such an enquiry.
Although, Fairfax and the ABC seem content to focus on the dissent within the party over the plan. This includes premier Colin Barnett, who has labelled it “not sensible”. However, he does recognise that the science is not settled, which is a hell of a lot better than the Prime Minister (“the science is in“).
If a royal commission was conducted in WA, if would set a precedent to other governments across the country. A fair and impartial enquiry would cast strong doubts over the need for a carbon tax and bring skeptical views into the mainstream. It is the first step towards stopping global warming hysteria.
