Scientific Research not Scientific Consensus
In recent Days Independents Rob Oakeshott and Nick Xenophon have said Australia should reduce CO2 emissions because of the scientific consensus. They may not know this but "scientific consensus" is not science - Only "scientific research" is science. Three scientists:- Ferenc Miskolczi(pictured), Richard Lindzen and Roy Spencer have different peer reviewed papers demonstrating Greenhouse gases cannot and will not over heat the planet. Their work is verifiable and there is no counter science to their work. It stands tall and strong in the literature. I want to ask all MPs - Will you attempt to reform parliamentary debate to make sure there is scientific research (rather than scientific consensus) that underpins legislation. This is symbolic of our future - will we build our future on "scientific rock" or "consensus sand".
