Cambridge Professor Peter Wadhams has made the astonishing claim that three scientists investigating the melting of Arctic ice may have been assassinated within the space of a few months.
Professor Wadhams who has previously been criticized by leaders of the green movement for allowing his paranoia to stray into alramism, said he feared being labelled a “looney over his suspicion that the deaths of the scientists were more than just an extraordinary’ coincidence (feared? I’d say he had proved it beyond reasonable doubt).
He insists his colleagues, one of whom was in a collision with a lorry while another fell downstairs while the third was stuck by lightening, could have been murdered and hinted that the oil industry or else sinister government forces might be implicated.
Murdered by lightening strike? Surely that would be a bit difficult to arrange, even for the CIA
The three scientists he identified – Seymour Laxon and Katherine Giles, both climate change scientists at University College London, and Tim Boyd of the Scottish Association for marine Science – all died within the space of a few months in early 2013.
Prof Wadhams said that in the weeks after Prof Laxon’s death he believed he was targeted by a lorry which tried to force him off the road. He reported the incident to the police.
Asked if he thought hitmen might have been behind the deaths, Prof Wadhams, who is Professor of ocean physics at Cambridge University, told The Telegraph: “Yes. I do believe assassins possibly murdered them but I can see that I would be thought of as a looney for believing this.
“But it’s just very odd coincidence that something like that should happen in such a brief period of time.
He added: “They [the deaths] were accidents as far as anybody was able to tell but the fact they were clustered like that looked so weird.
Asked who might have wanted them out the way, he replied: “I can only think of the oil lobby but I don’t think the oil lobby goes around killing people.
The Daily Telegraph among others ran the story and the final comment published before the thread was closed as commenters demolished washams’ credibility and threw his sanity into doubt was this from Feminist_Future
It isn’t just anybody making these claims.
It’s a Professor at Cambridge University.
If any of the posters below has even one-tenth of the intellect required to become a Cambridge University Professor, I’d be amazed.
Well all your favourite blogger can say to that is I am amazed that a person as evidently dumbed down, brainwashed and conditioned to authority worship as Feminist Future can find the intelligence to hit the right keys so we must assume her comment was intended to read something like “Yarrrghurrum fladibuffle nugum pharlibut rijubum glar” but benefits from the ‘moneys writing Shakespeare’ equation. For myself I can honestly say I have never met a university professor who could be accurately described as intelligent. They are big on book learning (which can be acquired by rote) but short on life experience, a combination which results in an absence of practical skills.
Scientists setting off to study the arctic should forst read up on Norse myth they they would understand the risks involved with pissing off Ymir and his ice giants. Don’t fuck with the ancient gods, they can be nasty bastards as the picture shows.
