Climate policy and practice

The Society  does not intend  to provide a structured portal on this page into climate science as there are many websites that do that very well. This page is primarily to present links to statements by the Society and its members on the policy aspects of climate science.

The October 2017 dialogue

If evidence were still needed that the public discourse over climate change remains nasty, shallow and unconducive to rational debate, one need only read the more than 500 comments attached to the online version of the President’s article in The Courier-Mail of Brisbane on 19 October 2017 .

The vehemence of the responses and their ad hominem flavour bode poorly for the prospect of crafting robust policy in Queensland.
