Earlier this week, in response to CSIRO's decision to slash its Antarctic science programme, The Interpeter posted 'Australia’s Antarctic Nightmare' by Dr Neil Hamilton. The post used dangerously simplified legal argument to conclude successive cuts to Australia’s science programme in Antarctica will lead to international discord on our southern flank. Panic as a nation should not be based on a discourse of alarmist headlines and narrow legal arguments over Antarctic sovereignty. Rather, if we were to panic, it should be because we aren’t supporting the science that will foretell our economic and physical futures.
