All Scientists are Sceptics ~Professor Bob Carter

Whenever someone asserts that a scientific question is “settled,” they tell me immediately that they don’t understand the first thing about science. Science is never settled. Dr David Deming

Perhaps the most frustrating aspect of the science of climate change is the lack of any real substance in attempts to justify the hypothesis ~Professor Stewart Franks

A lie told often enough becomes the truth.

Malcolm Roberts: Holding my university and its staff accountable

Guest Post by Malcolm Roberts




Restoring science
Holding my University and it's staff accountable 

Summary of complaints
Summary of Empirical Evidence on climate
Malcolm Roberts' qualifications



This page aims to help restore integrity and objectivity to science and to the rule of law.

Objectivity is vital. Without it, we invite the powerful to rule using physical force, financial and industrial might, emotional intimidation, propaganda, lies, corrupt politics, ...

History shows that science's objectivity is essential for freedom, efficiency, prosperity, progress and fairness.

My complaints present conclusions from the statements and claims of university staff and from observations of their behaviour. My complaints raise allegations discussed in various 'complaint forms' and supporting documents.

Jump down to each complaint:
Professor Ove Hoegh-Guldberg's behaviour became a concern after he misrepresented science on ABC-TV in October 2010. My concern deepened after his email replies.

It deepened further in 2013 after learning that he manages the university's John Cook who helped make up a false claim that there is a consensus of climate scientists sharing his boss'
misrepresentations of human carbon dioxide.

My concern deepened considerably after learning of Professor Hoegh-Guldberg's testimony under oath/affirmation on 7 April 2015 in the Queensland Land Court and in which he contradicted empirical evidence.

It further deepened as a result of subsequent correspondence with our university's Vice Chancellor.
I sincerely believe the impacts of their misrepresentations include serious damage globally to our natural environment and to humanity, particularly in poorer nations.

I believe that Australians will suffer from damage to industry, our economy and prosperity unless we hold such behaviours accountable.

My loyalty to the University of Queensland requires raising the behaviour of some of its staff in the hope that doing so will rectify damage being done to the university's reputation and prevent further damage to its reputation. Our university's future depends on its integrity, objectivity and competence.
We need to restore scientific integrity to restore and protect fairness, the rule of law and freedom.

After giving each recipient the courtesy of receiving the complaint the entire material is being posted to ensure openness and transparency. Posting minimises the use of paper in providing access to supporting documents to those copied on initial complaints.

FREEDOM IS ESSENTIAL FOR RESPONSIBILITY | Dr Maria Montessori, arguably the greatest observer of
human development based on a profound understanding of children's and adult's universal human
needs: “Discipline and freedom are so co-related that, if there is some lack of discipline, the cause is
to be found in some lack of freedom.”
