The CSIRO’s 2003 scare presentation

The CSIRO's scare presentation (see here) is a classic example of the federal government needlessly interfering in the lives of everyday Australians.
The primary aim of this study was to improve the current understanding of the impacts of past and future climate change on natural snow cover in Australia. A secondary aim was to assess the role of snow-making in countering projected changes in snow conditions.
Of course this study destroys Australians' ability to decide for themselves what level of snow cover they want and strangles businesses' ability to compete in the global marketplace.

And the CSIRO's fear campaign doesn't stop there. They conclude (emphasis added),
Warming trends at four alpine sites over the past 35 years appear to be greater than trends at lower elevations. There is evidence of small alpine precipitation changes over the past 50 years, with increases in the New South Wales Alps and decreases in the Victorian Alps. A weak decline in maximum snow depth is evident at three of the four alpine sites analysed since the 1950s. A decline in season snow depths for August and September is evident at three sites which may indicate the tendency for warmer temperatures to reduce both the snow-to-rainfall ratio and increase the rate of melting
As Tony Abbott noted, 
Look, this is a big bad tax. That’s what it is, it’s a big bad tax and it doesn’t matter what you do to it, it will still be a big bad tax

If we allow snow making to replace natural snowfall, how many hundreds of thousands of jobs will be lost before the Left is exposed?
