Guest opinion: Dr. Tim Ball

“Oh what a tangled web we weave, when first we practise to deceive!”

Sir Walter Scott (1771-1832)

Tim Ball was a professor of geography at the University of Winnipeg from 1988 to 1996. He is a prolific speaker and writer in the skeptical science community. [2] He has been Chairman to the now-defunct Natural Resources Stewardship Project (NRSP), “Consultant” to the Exxon-funded Friends of Science (FoS), senior fellow at the Frontier Centre for Public Policy (FCPP), and has connections to numerous other think tanks and right-wing organizations. [3], [4], [1] Tim Ball is member of Climate Exit (Clexit), a climate change denial group formed shortly after the UK’s decision to leave the EU. According to Clexit's founding statement (PDF), “The world must abandon this suicidal Global Warming crusade. Man does not and cannot control the climate.” [5], [6] Source: http://www.desmogblog.com/tim-ball
  That's to give a bit of background on the author who's featured in the following blog post.  I believe Mr Ball believes what he's saying and I think the payments from Exxon or whomever are just the cherries on the top and the way to keep working.  It would be nice to be able to believe his denier position but most don't. On the other hand it also doesn't seem likely that the UN SDGs are going to make much impact and may indeed end up being a fiasco or at least a waste of time.

Ah to be alive
on a mid-September morn
fording a stream
barefoot, pants rolled up,
holding boots, pack on,
sunshine, ice in the shallows,
northern rockies. 116 more words

Woof! Here comes the working dog.

One of the greatest issues cheetahs face is human-wildlife conflict. With so many farmers relying on goats, sheep, and cattle for income, cheetahs and other predators are seen as threats to their livelihoods. 471 more words
