James Delingpole writes a web log for the Daily Telegraph newspaper.
I find his pronouncements about Global Warming contentious, and littered with sceptical myths and denier legends.
It seemed like a good moment to enquire about his education, to check whether his ideological background can lend weight to his commentary, or in contrast, set him up to be a lightweight.
Dear Mr Delingpole,
May I politely enquire as to your scientific training ? From what I can find out about your studies, you do not appear to have turned your inestimable talent to the physical sciences.
I would like to know if you have a basic understanding of elementary physics and chemistry at the very least, in order to ascertain whether you do or do not have the competence to pronounce on Climate Change science.
In your writing you seem to rely on personal commentary about those engaged in the science, and use inexact, qualified generalisations to make your points.
This is perhaps amusing, but not accurate, so I would wish to know if you have a comprehension of what you are discussing.
Are you a cracked pot or a sound vessel ? Can you be relied upon for Global Warming science and news, or not ?
