Bureaucrats travel first class

THE fight against global warming has globe-trotting bureaucrats attending more than one international climate conference every week. Department of Climate Change staff flew first class to 64 global climate change meetings in just 12 months at a cost of more than $4 million. A Senate committee heard that 93 staff went to destinations including Greenland, the Maldives, Japan, the US and Bolivia.The trips cost taxpayers more than $2.74 million in airfares and $1.6 million for accommodation and meals.

The Government's special envoy on climate change, Howard Bamsey, was the biggest spender, racking up $229,000 in travel costs during 2009-10.

He was followed by climate change ambassador Louise Hand, who spent $192,000 on travel over the same period.


All you Leftie big government lovers who claim that no one has a vested interest in the hoax being pushed by the UN... read the above and try to understand. This is not about science... It is about politics and corruption.

If we extend unlimited tolerance even to those who are intolerant, if we are not prepared to defend a tolerant society against the onslaught of the intolerant, then the tolerant will be destroyed, and tolerance with them." - Karl Popper

“Necessity is the plea for every infringement of human freedom. It is the argument of tyrants. It is the creed of slaves.” - William Pitt

"Logic. There is little logic among the cultural elite, maybe because there is little omnipresent fear of job losses or the absence of money, and so arises a rather comfortable margin to indulge in nonsense." - Victor Davis Hanson
