“The only way to get our society to truly change is to
frighten people with the possibility of a catastrophe.”
– emeritus professor Daniel Botkin
“We’ve got to ride this global warming issue.
Even if the theory of global warming is wrong,
we will be doing the right thing in terms of
economic and environmental policy.“
– Timothy Wirth,
President of the UN Foundation
The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) is the federal government agency for scientific research in Australia. It was founded in 1926 originally as the Advisory Council of Science and Industry.
In the field of climate science, the CSIRO has historically leant towards the alarmist side of the climate debate. One example shows the CSIRO using sea level rise figures far in excess of even the IPCC.
In its 2012 report, State of the Climate, the CSIRO says that since 1993 sea levels have risen up to 10mm a year in the north and west. That means that somewhere has had a 19cm-rise in sea level since 1993. Where is this place? The European satellite says that sea levels have been constant for the past eight years.
In 2013, the CSIRO commissioned a study that found “Deserts ‘greening’ from rising carbon dioxide: Green foliage boosted across the world’s arid regions.”
The ‘greening’ of deserts, thanks to rising CO2, happens to be a very unwelcome message for the environmental movement and apparently now too for the CSIRO. So this week, the CSIRO removed the study from its website.
Australia’s premier scientific agency, the CSIRO, not interested in sharing scientific discovery, rather adhering to a type of selective thinking with a tendency to notice and to look for what confirms to their beliefs, and to ignore, not look for, or undervalue the relevance of what contradicts those beliefs. Also known as ‘Confirmation Bias’.
The CSIRO claim they “protect the integrity of science by upholding the highest standards of practice.”
Does deleting or censoring studies that are favourable to plant food, carbon dioxide, do anything to “protect the integrity of science” as laid out in their agenda?
Yet another example of why government funded scientific organisations like the CSIRO have – tragically – become almost the last places to hear the truth about climate change and the environment. Too much money and too many reputations are now at stake.
The CSIRO’s peer-reviewed study can be found at Science Daily:
The CSIRO contacted me via twitter with location of study:
Makes it a little tricky for the interested to track down when no link presents on any search engine. Conveniently archived perhaps.
UPDATE 15/8/2016 :
After conveniently “archiving” their 3 JULY 2013 study : “Deserts ‘greening’ from rising CO2” – CSIRO have now reinstated it on their website!
