Knowledge deficit looming

Abstract:
Another vital role is to bring governments to their senses over issues such as climate change by providing transparent public advice (where individual institutions or scientists are capable of being gagged). With dramatic advances in medicine, biotechnology, nanotechnology, information technology and other high sciences bearing down on us, it is clear the existing model of providing confidential advice to semi-deaf politicians will position Australia only at the tail of world technology leaders. Our national progress will be limited to the speed at which old politicians can absorb new scientific concepts. Frightening thought.
