Why the Science Party?

Our quality of life is improved by the continued application of reason, and by scientific discovery. The Science Party aims to increase opportunity for all individuals, and push society towards the pursuit of knowledge, for the benefit of all of humanity.

The natural and social sciences play vital roles in responding to major issues like climate change and pandemics, and approaching social and economic issues to create a secure future.

Only a party that respects science can implement the positive new ideas we need. United, we can form a government ready to lead.

  • COVID-19: A Fatal Lack of Foresight

    The Science Party is calling for the establishment of an Australian CDC. Read the policy here.

    If you've watched Steven Sodenbergh's 2011 film Contagion, you could almost imagine it as a trailer for 2020. Our heroes at the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC) struggle to contain a deadly virus ravaging the US and the world, wreaking havoc and sparking civil unrest in its path. Using contact tracing and widespread quarantine, and fighting wild conspiracy theories along the way, they develop a vaccine to halt the devastation.

  • PM: Meet with fire chiefs, and decarbonise

    Posted by · January 10, 2020 5:11 PM

    My social media feeds are an outpouring of humanity and grief. Offers of spare rooms for evacuated residents, fundraisers, rage at the lack of coordination and empathy from those who command resources.

    Our federal government must admit that this fire season is unprecedented and made more unpredictable by human-induced climate change—otherwise it condemns us to this being the new normal.

    In this blog post, I try to not dwell for too long on the federal government's response to the bushfires, and point out the crisis is in fact unprecedented.

    My conclusion is that prime minister Scott Morrison must meet immediately with former fire chiefs who have been requesting a meeting since April 2019. Share this demand on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram or YouTube.
