Lewandowsky's use of funding from the University of Western Australia to fund the propagation of his political views has rankled for many weeks now. Today, Jo Nova reports on an attempt to bring this abuse of taxpayer largesse to the attention of the university authorities.
Michael Kile (see below) has gone a step further and has raised the issue at the last UWA Convocation meeting on Sept 21 to put it on the official document trail. The Vice Chancellor was in attendance. The Chairman, who is Warden of Convocation, also happens to be on the board of the blog: ShapingTomorrowsWorld, where Lewandowsky writes. Hmm.
It may be purely coincidental, but since this meeting Lewandowsky has not posted anything on his blog.
The academic as publicly funded political campaigner is a problem that is surely rife in other countries too. I'm sure readers can think of examples.
