Aliens Cause Global Warming: A Caltech Lecture by Michael Crichton
The “exoneration” by Climategate investigations (like Muir Russell) that never bother to talk to skeptics, create an impossible conundrum of having essentially a trial with judge, jury, reporters, spectators, and defendant, but no plaintiff. The plaintiff is locked outside the courtroom sitting in the hall hollering and hoping the jury hears some of what he has to say.
Given this, I thought it valuable to revisit this Caltech lecture on the state of science and consensus by the late Michael Crichton.
– Anthony Watts
“Finally, I would remind you to notice where the claim of consensus is invoked. Consensus is invoked only in situations where the science is not solid enough.”
brilliant..consensus isnt science..science isnt consensus..the greatest scientists in the world went AGAINST the consensus..game over..
