ANOTHER Liberal Senator doubts the science of climate change!

Liberal-policy-1Senator agrees climate science ‘not settled’–not-settled-.html 21 April 2016 Deputy Nationals leader Fiona Nash has supported her coalition colleague Liberal Senator George Brandis’ view that the science on climate change is not settled.

Labor has condemned Senator Brandis after he told parliament he was not ‘at all’ convinced there is a scientific consensus about climate change.

‘It doesn’t seem to me that the science is settled at all,’ Senator Brandis said on Tuesday during debate on the tabling of documents relating to the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO).

‘The commitment of Senator Brandis to addressing the impacts of climate change is so shallow, he hasn’t made up his mind whether it actually exists yet,’ environment spokesman Mark Butler and shadow attorney-general Mark Dreyfus said in a statement.

Senator Nash told Sky News she agrees there are ‘varying views’ between scientists on climate change..

‘I don’t think it is certainly necessarily settled,’ she said. ‘I think we should be taking every precaution that we ensure the planet is healthy.’

The NSW Senator says she was not sure whether her view on climate science was shared by her cabinet colleagues

‘I think you would have to ask the other cabinet ministers but it’s certainly my view.’
