” …Labor’s spokesman for the environment, climate change and water, Mark Butler, said he wasn’t surprised that scientists were being sacked by the government, say Mr Abbott does not respect scientists’ work, particularly on climate change.
”And I don’t think it’s a coincidence that the experts being sacked by this government have previously pointed out the serious flaws in the Coalition’s direct action con,” Mr Butler said.
”If the government consulted independent scientists and researchers instead of Wikipedia, they would know their direct action policy will do nothing to tackle pollution and will end up costing households more.
”The government is sacking the experts and shutting out anyone who doesn’t agree with them. It’s a disgraceful act.”
Good, now – WHAT ABOUT THE ABC NEWS DEPARTMENT!
