My own personal climate change skepticism not withstanding… actually, I’m much more skeptical on the politics and economics of climate change than I am that the climate is changing… this little outburst by a Liberal MP has done nothing for the opposition’s credibility in a week where Malcolm Turnbull has slammed the government for not going far enough. When describing the myth that “scientific consensus” is meaningless Dr Dennis Jensen even managed to break Godwin’s Law:
“Albert Einstein was very much criticised by Hitler, and Hitler actually had a group of 100 top scientists in Germany write a book called 100 scientists against Einstein,” Dr Jensen said.
“Einstein was asked: ‘Doesn’t it bother you Dr Einstein that you’ve got so many scientists against you?’
“And he said: ‘It doesn’t take 100 scientists to prove me wrong, it takes a single fact’.”
