Scientists from around the world alarmed at Turnbull Government CSIRO cuts

Michael Slezak and Calla Wahlquist report in The Guardian (8.2.16):

‘More than 600 climate scientists from around the world have signed a letter to the Australian government protesting the cuts to climate research at the CSIRO, calling for the lost capabilities to be re-housed elsewhere.

‘As the letter circulates building signatures, Australian scientists gathering at the country’s largest climate conference in Melbourne made a similar call.

‘The proposed cuts will see up to 350 jobs go at the national science agency in the next two years and are expected to affect climate change research with most ofthe jobs going from the CSIRO’s oceans and Antarctica climate monitoring divisions.’
