Chicken Little received his pink slip.
Unable to afford the luxury of indulging socialist junk science, Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull is laying off researchers at the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization. The gravy train is ending.
From the Sydney Morning Herald:
In the email sent out to staff on Thursday morning, CSIRO's chief executive Larry Marshall indicated that, since climate change had been established, further work in the area would be a reduced priority.
"CSIRO pioneered climate research, the same way we saved the cotton and wool industries for our nation," Dr Marshall said. "But we cannot rest on our laurels as that is the path to mediocrity.
"Our climate models are among the best in the world and our measurements honed those models to prove global climate change," he said.
"That question has been answered, and the new question is what do we do about it, and how can we find solutions for the climate we will be living with?"Of course, none of the predictions from those models. The Arctic is not ice free. Floroda has not seen a hurricane in a decade. And three of the largest snowfalls in DC's history occurred after RFK Jr. said there would be no more snow in Washington in 2008.
Why do we indulge these anti-capitalist fantasies of congenital liars?
