Tim Ball: World-class Climatologist or Santa Impersonator?

The Victoria Times-Colonist ran this letter Sunday:

Re: “A climatologist, not just a skeptic,” Sept. 21.

Tim Ball takes issue with an earlier description of him as a climate change “skeptic,” claiming instead that he is a “climatologist” fully conversant with “the absolute latest in modern science.”

Yet the record shows that since his retirement as a University of Winnipeg geography professor in 1996, Ball has aligned himself with oil-industry front groups (Friends of Science, Envirotruth) and traded on a very light resume to sustain his busy calendar as a speaker and lobbyist against the Kyoto accord.
