Abolishing the Climate Commission is a good start. However there are still seven climate agencies and 33 climate schemes in seven different departments yet to be rooted out.

How to unwind this huge un-necessary bureaucratic empire?

Use the old union maxim – last in, first out. Whatever parliament created in one silly afternoon can be unmade just as quickly.

Don’t merge, don’t reorganise, don’t rebrand – ABOLISH.

And do it quickly before more damage is done to our economy, our energy supplies and our environment.

The climate will go on doing what it has always done – it will change.


Viv Forbes is a geologist/pastoralist who has walked along or been flooded by many rivers of Qld and NT. He and his wife have fed starving stock in the droughts and carted water for them. They have built, deepened or repaired at least 23 farm and station dams and managed construction and operation of mine dams. When Viv was employed by the Queensland State Government as a field mapping geologist they inspected the Nathan Gorge Dam site in 1964, 60 years ago. This dam was first proposed in 1922. It is still undeveloped over 100 years later.
