"The biggest public policy disaster in a lifetime" by Ian Plimer - the man with the facts, a shareholder in coal mines, or both?

Hi folks just read this via TCW:

interesting CV, wholly unendorsed by Wikipedia which (using the inverse-wikipedia-on-politics rule) likely makes him a truthteller with vested interests, straight talking imo.

cheers

Did you mean “no vested interests”?

I didn’t do the reverse Wikipedia due diligence… the title Emeritus Professor was quite enough to convince me the writer can’t have his livelihood threatened.

A good piece, and thanks for sharing.

I couldn’t quite see IP man being free of vested interests - he seems to have an investment portfolio that would fit any global warming enthusiast (uranium) as well as any old energy users (coal) - but as he says "that my links cannot possibly influence supernoval eruptions, solar activity and the Earth’s orbit.’’ :

in retrospect, perhaps I should just have stopped at truthtelling and straight talking !

cheers

Oh I get you now @CJ1, maybe I should have looked a bit deeper too. I just figured ‘emeritus’ therefore can’t be fired, like Frank Furedi or Noam for that matter. Yes: that looks deeply invested to me.
