Harness prairie wetlands in climate-change battle

A study has found that the prairie wetlands of North America hold vast potential for absorbing the greenhouse-gas emissions linked to global warming.

Tim Ball, et al: Revisionist History?

Here's an interesting query that I can't resolve. A DeSmog reader, looking back on an October 4, 2006 post under my name wondered why I was nattering about Tim Ball presenting himself as a Professor of Climatology when, under the link in that particular post, he was signed as a “Retired Professor of Geography.”

The link - to an “Open Letter to the Royal Society, reported in an NHInsider blogpost dated Sept 29, 2006 - assuredly lists Ball correctly as a retired geography prof. But the letter appeared in many places at the time, most consistently with William Gray as the lead signatory. You can find copies here and here with Ball signed as a “Professor of Climatology.”

As many of you know this is Tim Ball , star of the recent “Great Global Warming Swindle” that is receiiving a regular thrashing right now, even by one of the scientists that appeared in the film. I blurred it a little to make at least somewhat of a challenge.
