Speaking on ABC’s Insiders program on Sunday, Senator Roberts, the climate sceptic who secured One Nation’s second Queensland Senate spot last week, also challenged anyone at the national broadcaster to provide “empirical evidence” that proves human production of carbon dioxide is affecting the climate.

One Nation has snared four senate positions in an unexpectedly strong result that gives it the balance of power, along with the three Nick Xenophon senators, if Labor and the Greens combine to block bills.

The result has raised questions over whether One Nation will go the way of the Palmer United Party, which collapsed in the last federal Parliament.

In the Queensland Parliament in the late 1990s, five One Nation MPs split from the party after internal funding disputes.

Senator Roberts said in that case, the party had “grown spectacularly” in a matter of months to 11 MPs and “I don’t think there’s been anything like it ever in Australian politics”.

“No one could have managed that. It was phenomenal growth,” he said.

“Pauline is now going to manage the growth of the party and she is a very, very competent and highly intelligent person.”

Senator Roberts is a former coalmine manager who wants climate scepticism taught in schools and says the CSIRO and United Nations’ peak climate body endorse corruption.

On Sunday, he offered Insiders host Barrie Cassidy his business card in the event that ABC staff could prove human-induced climate change was real.

“If anyone in the ABC can provide me with the empirical evidence, the measured data that shows that human production of carbon dioxide is affecting our climate and needs to be something done about it, give me a call,” he said.

All the world’s major science academies and about 97 per cent of published scientists accept climate change is caused by humans.

One Nation’s extreme climate policy agenda includes pushing for a royal commission into climate science and abolition of the Renewable Energy Target.

The Climate Institute on Sunday said there was “abundant evidence that heat trapping greenhouse gases are in the atmosphere at record levels, this is causing the climate to change, and this is impacting on natural and human systems now”.

Fellow interviewee, newly returned Liberal Democratic Party senator David Leyonhjelm, was asked if he agreed there was no empirical evidence to suggest that the climate was warming.

“Oh, no. Our policy is we’re politicians or political people; we stay out of the scientific debate,” he said.

“We’re just a small government party so our view is irrespective of what you think about the science of global warming or climate change; it’s a matter of whether or not the government should do anything.

“Our view is the government shouldn’t do anything unless Brazil, Russia, India, China, US are all doing something then little Australia should join in for trade reasons.”
