An Impartial Climate Change Campaigner

Okay, just kidding. Dr. Tim Ball is one of the post evangelical climate science deniers in the country, so committed to the notion that humans are helpless to address climate change that he has launched a personal speaking tour, though not quite on his own dime.

He was recently speaking to the Ottawa Citizen Editorial Board, where he participated in this exchange – an example, perhaps of the care and attention that he takes to his professional interests:

Reporter: What made you come to Ottawa today?

TB: I came to Ottawa to make a presentation on my views on the climate change…. Because the debate about Kyoto….

Reporter: So who was it you spoke to here in town?

TB: I just spoke to an invited group, it was a group of people in the Westin Hotel and there was a conference going on…. I think the CAM…. I don’t know what the conference was.

Reporter: So you don’t know who the people were that you were speaking to?

TB: No, no, I just do what I do, I just speak and I say what I say… Oh and by the way I have never received a nickel from the oil and gas companies…..

Reporter: You got paid to speak yesterday [at the conference]?

TB: Oh yeah, of course.

Reporter: But you don’t know who paid you?
