How any lay man can counter the expertise of qualified scientists?===>Simply deny it.

...............and just remember, it is the Politicians that are in charge of moving social policy along. I'd love to know Roberts background. In a vacuum, its a toss up between being a religious fundie of some kind vs a paid off tool of Big Oil.

I was watching this as it went live to air. The video does not show what was fully going on. Malcolm Roberts is also a holocaust denier. Q&A is a government broadcast show on the ABC and fairly left in its editorial slant. The show started off normally on political issues and Brian Cox was simply there for Science Week to chat about government research cut backs. However it was a set up as indicated by Brian Cox having all his graphs printed and "ready to go".

In essence Australian government media workers cannot attack an Australian politician, as that is seen as biased behaviour on the ABC, however a foreign guest can attack whoever he wants.
