Australian news, and some related international items

Since Penny Sackett, Australia’s Chief Scientists have moved further towards the extractive industries

above –  new Chief Scientist Cathy Foley

Penny Sackett, Chief Scientist 2008 – 2011, was the first and clearest voice to speak out on climate change.

Then we had Ian Chubb, who was a lot quieter about this.

Then we got Alan Finkel, – who agreed that climate change was a threat, but thought that gas was a big solution.  However, he was very luke warm about nuclear power

Now we get Cathy Foley, a physicist with a background in the minerals industries, who talks about “no single solution” and ”a “whole range” of solutions ”.  Could that mean carbon capture,  and small nuclear reactors?   Watch this space.
