  1. Rachel, I heard this was pretty much across every sector, however, its the first time I’ve heard it as much as 40%.

    Ive never worked in a place where this is the case (females paid less) & at my place, I dont pay males anymore than females. Female accountants earn the same as the male, female programmers earn the same as the male & female tech support earn the same as the male. Ive even seen & discussed the books of many of my clients & I havent seen it there either.

    I guess people on the ground ( scientists) would be the best people to comment on your particular story. But I havent seen it or heard of it in my profession.

  2. Talking about the IPCC, I see IPCC chair Dr Pachauri will be on the Gold coast this week for the Climate adaption futures conference.

    The program looks like its jam packed with scientists/speakers.

    Why aren’t we seeing some of the many scientists at this conference, making guest posts/appearances on this or the many other pro AGW blogs? If they are going to stand up & talk for 30 mins, then surely they can write a short post as well to the blog masses. This is just one conference & there is literally dozens of scientists……..whereas at a Heartland, Cato, CEI , Monckton or Watts conference, they are lucky to get 2-3. Which pretty much reflects reality.

    Maybe Bolt could get down there with a placard. “I might not be a scientist, but I study these things”…..ah…yeahhhhh right. Rolls eyes.
