According to the program, the Australian Broadcasting Corporation's Lateline presenter and climate alarmist, Tony Jones has signed up once again to be a moderator at the 2009 Carbon Expo on the Gold Coast.
"Snow Cone", who is apparently paid in the region of $5,000-10,000 per appearance, has been on the climate alarmists' money trail for some years now.
It is unclear how familiar Mr Jones is with the Public Service Act, including Section 13 (7):
An APS employee must disclose, and take reasonable steps to avoid, any conflict of interest (real or apparent) in connection with APS employment.UPDATE: Anon in comments questions whether the ABC falls under the Public Service Act. A quick google is inconclusive - I can find no reference that it is either excluded or included.
However, the activities of Mr Jones should fall under the ABC editorial policies, including those concerning conflict of interest at 4.4:
There should be no conflict between the private interests of ABC staff and their official duties. The outside activities of staff, including financial, personal and political relationships, must not compromise the editorial integrity of ABC programs. Staff are expected to arrange their affairs in a manner that will prevent conflict of interest.
