When ‘scientific consensus’ is wrong: an example from 1915

KVI’s Lars Larson, sitting in for John Carlson, examines the story of German astronomer Alfred Wegener as told on a recent episode of Neil deGrasse Tyson’s “Cosmos”. In 1915, the ‘scientific consensus’ rejected Wegener’s theory about continental drift and those scientists derided Wegener as a pariah. Given the current ‘scientific consensus’ on man-made climate change, maybe the climate alarmists should consider the story of Wegener before proclaiming dissenters as ‘climate deniers’.
