The article offers the author's insights on government policy on climate change in Australia, suggesting that the government must avoid listening to scientists and to the United Nations. The author emphasizes that climatic changes will not be addressed through carbon dioxide emission reduction, rather in implementing appropriate disaster response strategies. The author adds that some Australians expressed their opposition on economic analysis of Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).
