    Damn, I'm taking too many a lot of courses. Found out they all can be credit towards a Bachelor of Trivial Pursuit (B.TP) at Hasbro University.

      Labor and Greens should be taking a course called 'the Sceptics Guide to the Paranormal'. Oh well, give it a few years and the unis will be offering courses on how most of the scientific community got deceived.

        Logged in just to neg this comment. What a buffoon, everyone is all too happy to rely on science and scientific knowledge from everything from watching television to treating cancer, but some people still reject climate science supported by 99% of actual climate scientists. You are up there with people rejecting cancer treatments and immunisation.

          I wouldn't go that far. The people rejecting cancer treatments and immunisation are generally insane or have dubious mental health. In my experience, people denying man-made climate change exist are generally (i.e. not always, but usually) "normal" people who are just lazy and selfish - with the actual reason behind rejecting it being so they can continue to pollute all they want without having to feel the guilt or have to pay towards the damage they're inflicting to the planet.

          I feel sorry for the first lot, I despise the second!
