Australians are losing interest in global warming, according to an opinion poll by Sydney's independent Lowy Institute, released today. It shows 46 percent of respondents are "really worried" by climate change, compared with 68 percent four years ago. Thirteen per cent of the more than 1,000 respondents said the science of climate change was still in dispute, up from 7 percent in 2006 when the poll series started.

Ah, Australia, the land where carbon trading was chased off the property. The land where a conservative party leader was deposed for believing that the "science was settled" and then replaced by a climate realist. It couldn't happen here, could it?

We'd have to find a conservative party first.

Ah! Now that's a lot more difficult.

If only my NZ government would listen to these polls. They are pressing ahead with the ETS on July 1st despite a lot of public opposition.

I met with a local MP yesterday who described this "as the most complex piece of legislation we have introduced" (groan)
I asked him how increasing the price of everything would change my behaviour, and that maybe paying people to grow trees for no economic benefit was perhaps creating an artificial bubble.

The interesting thing is that we have the ACT party in a confidence and supply arrangement with the NZ govt.They are opposed to the ETS, and opening sceptical about climate science (leader Rodney Hide admitted to me that he is a frequenter of WUWT and other blogs). So he we have a government who is pressing ahead with the most comprehensive ETS in the world, (agricultural emissions due to start in 2015), and yet they rely on cabinet support from a minister who is an open sceptic, and whose party is opposed to the ETS and carbon tax in general.

I would suggest that times could get interesting in NZ.

A pity the Met Office isn't unravelling. The latest madness from them: predicting (using computer modelling, doubtless) that cities COULD BE could be up to 2°C hotter by 2040, thereby putting ar risk of death countless thousands of people. So, they acknowledge the urban heat island effect, but are careful not to mention its highly distorting effect on the 'global' temperature record.
