The problem with Universities and schools for that matter these days is that they are intent on only fostering one avenue of thinking. It must be of the left and it must toe the line. The was a teacher at one of the schools here the other day who told the girls in his class that they would never be able to have children because of climate change. He should have been sacked for but I'm sure he was encouraged to say these kind of things.
The word Sceptic is used in the same tones as pedophile or murderer. If it wasn't for the sceptic we would still believe that the earth is flat and that the planets, sun, and stars revolved around us. Science should never be a case of getting an idea and proving that it is right and thereafter shutting down all discussion.
True science used to be about working on an idea to prove or disprove the theory. You don't make up data and skew it to prove your theory.
Some of the most vocal so called scientists have not been experts on climate. Our most vocal local expert was a clown by the name of Tim Flannery. He wrote books about Skippy the bush kangaroo and told us that even the rains that fall would never again fill our dams. He advised our government that we would need desalination plants so we built them. We have never needed them. Our dams are full and our pockets are empty because they cost billions to maintain and provide us with exactly zero benefit.
So excuse me if I don't have the time or the patience for the 90% of all scientists argument.
Experts agree that 90% of statistics are made up. 90 % of a focus group is exactly that. A percentage of a focus group. It's as valid as saying that I spoke to 10 people yesterday and 90% of them agreed with me therefor everyone must agree with me.
Ken I was in your area yesterday, I should have dropped in to say gday.
