Why You Should Question "Consensus" Scientists

So, "consensus" scientists' theories are unassailable, eh? No debating the undebateable? In this story, we see that scientists were shocked that any creature could live below 600 feet of ice in the Antarctic; this flew in the face of accepted, "consensus" opinion that only certain microbes were hearty enough to exist in such cold conditions. Just read the quote from Dr. Kim below for yourself.

If "consensus" scientists can be wrong about life in the Antarctic, the next question you should ask yourself is, "Could they be wrong about carbon's role in the climate?" Because they ARE WRONG.

Yes, Dr. Kim and Dr. Bindschadler. You guys think you know EVERYTHING (your quote), but YOU DO NOT. And what scientific team produced this bit of news? NASA, of course...the same organization that brings you the unquestionable Dr. James Hansen and his flawed global warming theories.

WASHINGTON -- In a surprising discovery about where higher life can thrive, scientists for the first time found a shrimp-like creature and a jellyfish frolicking beneath a massive Antarctic ice sheet.

Six hundred feet below the ice where no light shines, scientists had figured nothing much more than a few microbes could exist.

That is why a team from the National Aeronautics and Space Administration was surprised when they lowered a video camera to get the first long look at the underbelly of an ice sheet in Antarctica. A curious shrimp-like creature came swimming by and then parked itself on the camera's cable. Scientists also pulled up a tentacle they believe came from a foot-long jellyfish.


"It's pretty amazing when you find a huge puzzle like that on a planet where we thought we know everything," Kim said.
