We flew professor Ball to Toronto from Victoria for our interview because he could not afford the flight. The money for the economy fare was donated by two friends of our program with no connections to the climate-change debate and there was no fee for professor Ball.
In other words, this man alleged to be in the pay of millionaires could not find anyone to subsidize even an entirely legitimate domestic flight for a major interview seen by 300,000 people!

We’re being lied to and the lies started 40 years ago.”
And professor Ball continues to speak out, no matter what the cost. More e-mails condemning him? Yes indeed. They’re being written right now.
