Tim Ball: Finding New Ways to Fudge His Credentials

on

CLICK HERE FOR AN UPDATED BIO OF TIM BALL (FEB.05, 2007) 

In a September 26, 2006 letter to the Royal Society, Dr. Tim Ball, the leading signatory, identifies himself as “Professor of Climatology, University of Winnipeg.”

Not quite. From 1988 until his retirement in 1996, Dr. Ball was a Professor of Geography at that university. He has not, since, had any official position at U of W or at any university. So, he is not now a Professor of Climatology at the University of Winnipeg and, arguably, never was.

It raises the question: if he is this cavalier about the factual accuracy of his own record of employment and credentials, how could he expect us to believe any of the rest of what he says?
