Well, and the whole point of naturalistic dualism is that supervenience physicalism is false, i.e. that the mental doesn't ontologically supervene on the physical but only nomologically, i.e. by virtue of psychophysical laws which aren't entailed by the physical laws. As for Chalmers' argumentation, see his books The Conscious Mind and The Character of Consciousness!
