Senator Malcolm Roberts received confirmation today that the Government relies on discredited reports from the United Nations as a basis for its climate policies. Independent scientists and its own authors have condemned this UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) report. Senator Roberts said “Neither the government nor CSIRO has performed due diligence on the UN climate reports, to ensure these are accurate and reflect the full body of scientific literature.” “And yet the government uses these one-sided UN political reports as the basis for spending billions of dollars on renewables projects and nationwide green taxes,” he added.
Senator Roberts has spent a decade researching the core UN IPCC science chapters which purport to show the cause and effect relationship between human carbon dioxide and temperature. “These core science chapters replace empirical scientific evidence with subjective garbage-in garbage-out climate models” said Senator Roberts. The IPCC report relies heavily on erroneous climate models that have not been validated and falsely assume that human carbon dioxide is the main driver. “This is a failure of science and it is alarming that politicians rely on these flawed models to build a billion dollar climate economy; this is a travesty,” stated Senator Roberts.
“This goes to the core of our country’s governance that is based on corrupt socialist UN policies which are de-industrialising our country and gutting our nation,’ said Senator Roberts. “If the UN IPCC were a corporation, an accountant or financial institution, it would belted for fraudulent, misleading and deceptive conduct,” he added. One Nation calls on the government to immediately set up an independent review of climate science which will rely solely on empirically-based scientific evidence.
