In the Movie “A Few Good Men,” in response to Lt. Daniel Kaffee’s remark: “I want the truth!” Col. Jessep shouted: “You can’t handle the truth!”
Recently on Sydney Radio 2UE, Australia’s Chief Scientist, in response to a question about global warming scepticism, made a statement to the order of “I have never seen a peer-reviewed paper that supports the anti AGW position.” This was after attending a meeting with Steve Fielding where peer-reviewed evidence was presented.
Also at that meeting, Senator Fielding presented the Chief Scientist with the hefty hard copy of the NIPCC report, which is a compendium of the relevant climate science that “demonstrates overwhelming scientific support for the position that the warming of the twentieth century was moderate and not unprecedented, that its impact on human health and wildlife was positive, and that carbon dioxide probably is not the driving factor behind climate change.
It also contains details of the Petition Project (http://www.petitionproject.org/) which has been signed by more than 31,000 US scientists refuting the CO2 hypothesis. How much more peer-review does she need?
A subsequent response by Senator Fielding’s Science Advisors contained more than 60 peer-reviewed papers. Surely, with due diligence, the Chief Scientist would have read this response, wouldn’t she?
This was issued 5 days before her statement on 2UE.
