Qualifications creep

Meet Gavin Cooke.

He is “a former journalist and television researcher. He studied Energy and Environment while at University in Newcastle and is based in the North East Of England.”

That’s the author description for his 2009 book “2025: Ice Bound Britain.”

Meet Gavin Cooke a year later, on the publication of his new book “Frozen Britain: How the Big Freeze of 2010 is the Beginning of Britain’s New Mini Ice Age”:

Climatologist Gavin Cooke takes a comprehensive and detailed look at global warming and the ‘Big Freeze’ of 2010 to explain how Britain will freeze before it fries.”

From journalist to climatologist in just one year. Here’s the secret, as explained in an interview with The Sun:

“He is quick to admit that he hasn’t got the scientific background of those who have spent a lifetime studying climate change. What he has brought to the table is his enthusiasm for the subject, his tracking of the arguments and a desire to make sense of a blizzard of information, so to speak.”

He thinks its sunspots.

It isn’t sunspots.

    Mr Cooke has never been to University in Newcastle or anywhere else. It is time someone checked out his claims. He is not a climatologist and has never been a television researcher. What he is is a con man? His publisher needs to find out the truth.

    Thanks for the Heads Up on Gavin Cooke.

    I’ll stick with people with background, or demonstrated calculational ability.

    No need to COOK UP results.
