This letter just rehashes the same old baseless arguments we have been hearing from the denial movement for years. The fact remains that Tim Ball has been debunked many times, including in a report by CBC’s The Fifth Estate. Fact is that Dr. Ball is a retired geography professor not a climatoglogist.Â He has never done any research and has been working for a PR agency that is sponsored by the oil industry. Mr. Ball has not published any peer-reviewed papers on climate change or any other scientific subject.
This must be partÂ of a last ditch effort by the Exxon-Mobil denial machine in the face of mounting evidence and the tide of public opinion. I fnd this campaign despicable and I cannot understand how these people can do this and still sleep at night.
Just found another post on thisÂ abject characterÂ here. Apparently this letter is popping up all over the net.
