ACT a leader on climate change

By GnT 22 November 2007 22

This article from the ABC reports that while the federal government denied funding to the ANU for a climate change research centre, the ACT government has come through to jointly fund the centre.

After the weekend, it will be interesting to see how the next federal government responds to the need for climate change research.

Yeah – just think of it as investing in a business that is a going concern, with local employees, but will struggle to stay in Canberra without assistance – much like the Hume timber mill.

so we should all just accept climate change, go on plundering the planet and have the poles become the last bastion for the few million who may be lucky enough to be the sole survivors of the human race by the end of the century, the rest of the planet desertified or inundated by the sea. nice way to die.

the centre, on money, is taking $2.5m if we paid half, and this is less than an additional amount pledged to the new hume prison, additional ’cause they couldn’t estimate properly and are covering a shortfall. almost $3m… couldn’t that money be better spent locally to maybe reduce the no. of people likely to end up in this institution? does anyone weep and wail and complain about that expenditure? what will a gaol acheive? what is the point of $200m+ when there are all these potholes and stuff needing atention? what’s wrong with sending the baddies to goulburn?

the point is that canberra happens to be home to a research institute of renown and the govt is wisely investing in its jewel. doesn’t that make sense?
