We Don’t Want Lomborg’s Anti-Science Here

Flinders University will be making a grave error of judgement if it agrees to host Bjørn Lomborg’s anti-science centre, say the SA Greens.

“South Australia is leading the nation in wind and solar energy in response to climate change. Giving credibility to “do-nothing” quackery is bad for business, jobs and the environment,” said Greens SA Parliamentary Leader Mark Parnell MLC.

“The Federal Government has cracked open the piggy-bank to help fuel their anti-science agenda.

“Flinders University is one Australia’s leading research universities. Minister Pyne is risking the research reputation of his own state. Why didn’t he get the message when the University of Western Australia rejected him? We don’t want Lomborg’s anti-science rubbish in SA either.

“The SA Greens are calling on Flinders University staff and students to make their views known,” concluded Mr Parnell.
