Some information from sources at the University of Western Australia. On October 21, 2010, the following email was sent to the UWA staff mailing list:
UWA researcher Charles Hanich is seeking participants for a web-based survey of attitudes towards climate science (and other sciences) and skepticism. The survey carries no risks for participants. To participate in the survey please use this link:
Completion should take less than 10 minutes and all data will be analyzed anonymously and without monitoring or identifying individual responses.

For some strange reason, the invitation is online at a web agggregator here. (I googled the survey id.)
What was the results of UWA staff who actually took the survey. Surely this would have made an interesting comparison group with the bloggers who are the target of the Moon-landing paper.
It would have been a logical comparison. Was it done and discarded? If so, why? If it wasn’t, why wasn’t it done?
