COALITION CALLS FOR REMOVAL OF NZ COMMISSIONER FOR ENVIRONMENT

Posted 24 December 2008

A demand for Dr Jan Wright, the Parliamentary Commissioner for the Environment, to be removed from office is to be conveyed to the Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon Dr Lockwood Smith, by the New Zealand Climate Science Coalition. This follows publication in the Wellington Dominion Post of an op-ed by Dr Wright labelling climate skeptics as a 'microsopic minority' whose views should not be entertained. Coalition chair, Rear Admiral Jack Welch, said: "Dr Wright’s ignorance of the nature and processes of science, her blatant bias in the on-going scientific debate about climate science, and her attempts to muzzle free speech and scientific debate mean that she has forfeited any right to a position that demands integrity, professionalism and neutrality”.      LINK
