David French on Environment
The public should be suspicious of arguments based largely on appeal to "consensus" or the "mainstream." Consensus is all-too-often created through censorship, suppression, greed, and opportunism. Willful blindness to dissent is common in the academy, and scientists can be just as susceptible as the most ideological professors.
After all, science that doesn't consider dissenting views--that doesn't even bother to familiarize itself with contrary research--isn't science. It's groupthink.
