Support for the ETS is turning
Prof. David Flint
David Flint writes at Quadrant Online: To the extent that it is accurate, and that is not always the case, an opinion poll is no more than a snapshot of opinion at one particular point in time. The opinion it registers is of course not set in aspic. Surely everyone realises this?
But the front page of The Weekend Australian (28-29) November reports otherwise. The newspaper relies on an opinion poll in September that 71% of city voters and 61% of rural voters support an ETS. Does it really think that this support will hold after the revelations of fraud among some climate scientists, that the climate is not as predicted by what is laughingly called “the” science, and when the people are allowed to exercise an informed vote.
