I point out that the things we hold dear in modern science: a free press, peer review, universities etc., that should safeguard good science do not, unless people are prepared to question the current 'correct' doctrine.
Possibly, there is no link between Mankind's CO2 emissions and global warming, or none that is significant. People should demand evidence. We must not be afraid to point out weaknesses in mainstream opinion. Science does not progress through enforced dogma.
