Peter Ellerton on Brandis’s logical fallacies

Peter Ellerton / 23 April 2014

RSA committee member Peter Ellerton explains why Australia’s top lawmaker has got it wrong.

Brandis complains that “climate change denialists are being ‘excluded from the debate”.  Ellerton points out that “deniers of climate science are as free as anyone else to make their case. That the case is not being made is not a function of suppression, it is result of lack of evidence”.

Brandis confuses right to be heard with right to be taken seriously.

All the more reason.
