Last year over 5,000 Australian's responded to a Parliamentary Joint Select Committee on Australia’s Clean Energy Future Legislation's call for submissions in September, 2011. Within the very short timeframe of one week, these people and organisations managed to draft, write and submit to the committee on this complex topic.

Unfortunately, the Labor-and-Greens-Alliance-dominated committee decided that there were too many submissions against the legislation and so they decided to 're-categorize' these 'negative' submissions as 'correspondence'.

Similarly, Dr Jensen, about the only member in the parliament qualified to comment on the science, found he was not allowed to table reputably published, peer reviewed science on the specific topic of climate change, in the Parliament during the debate on (see here) the Clean Energy Future Legislation.

In addition, Australia's Chief Scientist, Professor Chubb was allowed to give testimony before this Joint Select Committee on Australia’s Clean Energy Future Legislation, on the 26th September, 2011 (unlike over 5,000 other Australians who had their submissions 'reclassified') without offering any empirical science in support of his case as demonstrated by Dr John Happs' demolition of Professor Chubb's efforts (here). If Dr Happs had been able to present alongside Professor Chubb, it would have been interesting to hear the Committee's response.

One has to ask oneself, "What could the Labor Green government be affraid of? Free speech in the Parliament; the science; or the truth perhaps?"

So we have the Australian Parliament and the government funded ABC (here) both deciding that the people's right to hear opposing views or even to question the 'consensus view' is somehow 'inappropriate' and therefore, decide it is not going to happen.
