Over at Catallaxy, I see that Sinclair Davidson's tedious "broken promise" campaign entry for day 13 of carbon pricing put up a video of David Murray (an ex banker who headed our Future Fund) criticising the policy as bad economically. Never mind that he (Murray) has long said he doesn't even believe CO2 can cause AGW. That wouldn't make his views on the economic effects of the policy suspect now, would it? Wayne Swan appears on the video making this point, and ABC host Emma is the other person who makes an appearance.
Anyway, in the comments following, in the middle of the night, we get this contribution from mareeS:
Last I looked, there were about 16 or so comments after Maree's, by Catallaxy regulars, none of whom make any comment about her contribution.
For a group of people who scoff at the idea that climate scientists have been at the receiving end of torrid and disgusting email campaigns from skeptics who wish them dead, and quite a few of whom have spent time this week talking about how they wouldn't be surprised if Gillard suspended the next election due to some drummed up, climate change related "state of emergency", they are a really a bunch of unselfaware and stupid people.
