Engineers: Masquerading as socialists?

Technological ingenuity, given the chance, could enrich our lives while addressing climate change. If only our politicians listened to innovative and passionate engineers instead of assuming climate change was socialism masquerading as environmentalism.

A few days ago I wrote about how former Prime Minister John Howard could recognise that humans have an incredible capability to come up with technologies to counter resource constraints (Reading Howard's sceptic mind, November 6). Yet this belief seemed to stop at the idea of being able to develop affordable substitutes for fossil fuels (or, at least, mop up the CO2 from fossil fuels).
