Dimmock, Durward, et al, are disrobed.

For a background on the issue, check our earlier posts here and here.

The “Scientific Alliance,” is an organization formed by a UK businessman who was fed up with “all this environmental stuff.

The Alliance describes itself as “a forum for addressing environmental problems based on sound science.” Other members include Sallie Baliunas and Benny Pesier. According to a July ‘01 article, the Scientific Alliance was set up by Robert Durward and a public relations firm called “Foresight Communications.”

Originally, Durward, owner of a rock quarry in the UK, formed the Alliance out of frustration over an aggregate tax being proposed for the quarry industry. On top of fighting the tax, the Alliance also provided “expert” scientific advice on subjects like transport, climate change and biodiversity. Durward described himself, “as a businessman who is totally fed up with all this environmental stuff… much of it unjustified, such as the climate change levy.”

At the time of the Alliance’s formation, Durward refused to disclose who the financial backers of the project were.
