CSIRO scientists have established a raw data page to counter accusations that their work is “not real science” – see it at aptly named Cape Grim Data.

I guess it is very difficult to communicate objective, uninterpreted information when the population is caught up in an emotive and political ideological storm surrounding the proposed carbon emissions tax scheme. Anything that supports or detracts from the other side’s argument becomes ammunition for hyperbole and innuendo and those who drift by the cross-hairs become fair game.

Kudos to the CSIRO scientists for making the attempt.
