The Australian Prime Minister takes up blogging

  1. An interesting anecdote about John Howard, which pre-dates the quote above by a few months: at one of the regular meetings of his scientific advisory group, he asked the then Chief Scientist to convene a group of scientists to “debunk this climate change rubbish” or words to that effect. The then Chief Scientist, to his credit (and this was a man seconded from a major mining company), replied that he suspected that such a group of scientists could not be found. Howard was silent for a moment, then moved on to another topic. I believe it was only after this incident that Howard publicly acknowledged the reality of global warming and started talking about an ETS.
