The Taranaki Daily News has a very good editorial on how the Greens want to have their scientific cake and eat it too:
. . . It is fascinating that the Green Party clearly supports science and scientists when the issue is climate change but sees little stock in the science and scientists when the issue is something that might run counter to their ideology.
Which is what this is all about. Because it most definitely is not about the science, the rational.
It is the pursuit of ideology that puts the Greens in bed with one set of scientists but has them estranged from another. And that politically inspired hypocrisy is a disservice both to the party and the New Zealand scientific community they should be supporting, celebrating, promoting. . .
Science is good when it suits their argument but not when it doesn’t.
