Alan Finkel: the man who could bring peace to Australia's climate wars

One Nation senator Malcolm Roberts was waiting but Alan Finkel was ready.

Chief scientist Dr Alan Finkel. 
The chief scientist, who has a PhD in electrical engineering and worked as a postdoctoral research fellow in neuroscience, could see what Parliament's most persistent climate change sceptic was doing.

Did Dr Finkel believe it was important for a scientist to keep an open mind, Senator Roberts wanted to know.

Dr Finkel spotted the trap and said he was happy to own up to a "healthy degree of scepticism”.
