Quick Climate Links: David Karoly on the CSIRO; Juice Media on the LNP Government; Environmental offset bulldozed

Professor David Karoly (pictured) is retired and no longer working with the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) and having shed those shackles he can now present publicly with the honesty and frankness for which he had become known.

A story from The Guardian has quoted him:  - "CSIRO has become ‘extravagant consulting company’, one of its former top climate scientists says".

Meanwhile, holding its form, Juice Media has not held back in its latest YouTube clip - "Honest Government Ad | 2022 Election (Season 2 Finale)".
