Hewson – Liberals denying climate change

Howard stated that he was an “agnostic” on climate, and preferred to rely on his “instincts”. This, of course, ignores the fact that none of us non-climate scientists would even know that there was an issue except that some 97 per cent of peer-assessed climate scientists (now joined by a host of non-climate scientists) have, atypically, agreed on the magnitude and the urgency of the challenge. I say “atypical” because it is the very essence of scientific endeavour that they disagree, that they contest each other’s hypotheses and research conclusions. So, John Howard, it’s not a question of “religion”, but of science, and “instincts” are irrelevant when it comes to matters of scientific “fact”.
