Seems that not only will Australian taxpayers be forking out for adaptation and recuperation instead of mitigation, now we're paying science deniers. The Institute for Public Affairs - arguably Australia's number one climate science denial machine, gets subsidised by taxpayers in all sorts of ways.
It's used the taxpayer-funded ABC as its own personal free publisher and public relations organisation. It gets a free pass on paying taxes. And anyone who sends it money gets a tax deduction for doing so.
This, mind you, is a right wing lobby group that rants and raves about government overspending, government subsidies and urges small government. You'd think the last thing it would be doing is wasting our hard earned tax dollars. But no. Apparently it's a matter of "do what we say not what we do". They survive with the help of taxpayer's contributions and tax breaks.
Now it's got a new scam going. On the back of a who's who of science denying shysters, the IPC is
threatening offering to publish for all the world to see, the names of anyone dumb enough to send them $400 or more to chop down trees to make door stops - or loo paper if you're extra tough.
It looks as if they can't get a publisher to pay for their trashy book so they have to resort to panhandling. You can read all about it here at Renew Economy.
I can't wait to see who are the most disreputable among the Establishment, who are willing to tattoo their names on the backside of such disreputable ratbags as Andrew Bolt, James Delingpole, Donna Laframboise, Mark Steyn, Nigel Lawson. "Jo Nova", Jennifer Marohasy, Richard Lindzen, Anthony Watts, Ian Plimer, Bob Carter and other climate science deniers from Australia and around the world.
