If only U.S. climate parasites would do the same.
The Daily Telegraph reports:
EXPERTS from the soon-to-be-abolished Climate Change Commission have vowed to push on voluntarily with their public education role.
Headed by 2007 Australian of the Year Tim Flannery, the commission was set up two years ago by the former Labor government to increase public awareness of climate-change science.
Federal Environment Minister Greg Hunt last week phoned Professor Flannery and informed him of the decision to dump the commission to save money.
Mr Flannery and the other commissioners have vowed to continue their role on a voluntary basis, ABC TV reports.
They will call themselves the Climate Council and continue to release reports and engage in public debate.
Mr Hunt responded that it was a free country.
“I wish them good luck,” he told ABC TV.
“It proves our point that the commission did not have to be a taxpayer funded body.”
