Dr Karl: Intergenerational Report flawed

The man promoting the Government’s latest Intergenerational Report - science broadcaster Karl Kruszelnicki - has backed away from the document, describing it as “flawed” and admitting to concerns that it was “fiddled with” by the government.

Released every five years, the report provides a snapshot of Australia’s community and society in 40 years. Dr Kruszelnicki - also known as Dr Karl - singled out the reduced focus on climate change for criticism, describing the Government’s stance on the issue as “incredibly short-sighted”.

Despite assurances otherwise, he now believes he put his name and reputation to a report that is highly political. However, Dr Karl says he has not asked for the ad campaign to stop.
