Mr LINDSAY (10:17 AM) —I would like to support the motion. I pay tribute to Dr Ian Poiner and his team. The Australian Institute of Marine Science lead the world in what they do. It is also interesting that a briefing that they provided to me in relation to their research on climate change was yet another scientifically validated piece of information which made sure that anyone who saw it would not be a climate change sceptic. I just wish more in the Australian community understood that this evidence is available now to everybody.

These new works, particularly the works in the Port of Townsville, are very important for AIMS to do their work. I welcome the dollars that are being proposed here in the parliament and I support this motion.

Question agreed to.
