One Nation does not support this motion. One Nation supports policies that are based on empirical scientific evidence. Without robust scientific evidence, policies are not worth the paper they're written on. By avoiding robust scientific evidence to support policies, politicians are able to base policies on their political and ideological whims and vested interests. As we recently learned, the CSIRO, which advises the government on climate science, has been caught out relying on discredited scientific papers and unvalidated models as the basis for advice to government on climate policy.

The Liberal-Nationals and the Labor-Greens have no empirical evidence that the production of human carbon dioxide is affecting the climate and needs to be cut. Until there is, all climate policies need to be scrapped. I remind the Senate that this is day 419 since I first challenged the Leader of the Australian Greens in the Senate to provide the evidence and to debate me, and 7 October marks a decade since I first challenged her to debate me, and she has not fronted after immediately refusing.
