Hoisted with their own petard

The news this week from Australia that the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) was to significantly reduce its research into climate change and close down its Climate Division with the loss of jobs for some 350 scientists was about the only recent item of news which has raised a smile as far as I'm concerned.

After all, sceptics like myself are constantly being told that "the science is settled", so why should there be any need for further research?
