Were three British climate scientists assasinated?

It occurs to me that this is the perfect opportunity to discredit Prof. Wadhams and his conclusions. You just need to portray him as a 'nutcase" with his 'outrageous' claims. 

These things don't happen in civilised Britain, do they? (sic)

I am not a great believer in coincidence, especially in these matters. Whatever the truth behind the death of these three scientists within a short period of time if Prof. Wadhams is nervous he will have good reason to be so.

If this had happened in Russia responsibility would be laid at Putin's door,no questions asked

Were three British climate scientists assassinated?  I say 'quite possibly'

Three scientists investigating melting Arctic ice may have been assassinated, professor claims
Cambridge Professor Peter Wadhams suspects the deaths of the three scientists were more than just an ‘extraordinary’ coincidence


25 July, 2014


A Cambridge Professor has made the astonishing claim that three scientists investigating the melting of Arctic ice may have been assassinated within the space of a few months.

Professor Peter Wadhams said he feared being labelled a “looney” over his suspicion that the deaths of the scientists were more than just an ‘extraordinary’ coincidence.

But he insisted the trio could have been murdered and hinted that the oil industry or else sinister government forces might be implicated.

The three scientists he identified - Seymour Laxon and Katherine Giles, both climate change scientists at University College London, and Tim Boyd of the Scottish Association for marine Science - all died within the space of a few months in early 2013.

Professor laxon fell down a flight of stairs at a New year’s Eve party at a house in Essex while Dr Giles died when she was in collision with a lorry when cycling to work in London. Dr Boyd is thought to have been struck by lightning while walking in Scotland.

Prof Wadhams said that in the weeks after Prof Laxon’s death he believed he was targeted by a lorry which tried to force him off the road. He reported the incident to the police.

Asked if he thought hitmen might have been behind the deaths, Prof Wadhams, who is Professor of ocean physics at Cambridge University, told The Telegraph: “Yes. I do believe assassins possibly murdered them but I can see that I would be thought of as a looney for believing this.

"But it’s just very odd coincidence that something like that should happen in such a brief period of time.”

He added: “They [the deaths] were accidents as far as anybody was able to tell but the fact they were clustered like that looked so weird.”

Asked who might have wanted them out the way, he replied: “I can only think of the oil lobby but I don’t think the oil lobby goes around killing people.”

He admitted it would have been "stupid" to go to the police with his concerns over the three deaths, not least because he was "suspicious" of the authorities - he cited the example of the death of the government’s weapons expert Dr David Kelly.

Prof Wadhams added: “I thought if it was somebody assassinating them could it be one of our people doing it and that would be even more frightening. I thought it would be better not to touch this with a barge pole.”

His suspicions drew outrage on Saturday from Prof Laxon’s partner, who was also a close friend of Dr Giles. When told what Prof Wadhams had said, Fiona Strawbridge, head of e-Learning at UCL, replied: “Good god. All of this is completely outrageous and very distressing.”

The couple had been staying in a friends’ converted mill in the Essex countryside when her partner fell down the stairs in the early hours of New Year’s Day. He died the next day from head injuries.

It was very steep stairs and I heard Seymour fall,” said Ms Strawbridge, “It is just completely bonkers [to suggest murder].

"I am sure there are some climate scientists who do get trolled and pursued but Seymour wasn’t one of them. I would have known if anybody had been pursuing him.

Sometimes there are tragic coincidences and you have to accept that.”


Interestingly, the last article about Peter Wadhams in the Guardian is this article by Nafeez Ahmed in 2013

  1. I have followed the tracks and evidence of the brutal killings and horrors perpetrated by the agents of the US Empire since the military coup against the democratic regime of Salvador Allende in 1973 ! The nefarious Kissinger was implicated in the planning that transformed Chile into a concentration camp and torturechamber. Today we are following their bloody traces in Ukraina and in the Oil rich Middle East. ! I find it reasonable to point to the powers walking on "The dark Side"! Big Oil & Big Coal have caused, initiated the process of "Run Away Global Heating" that now is reducing tawing the ice in the Arctic and Antarctica . Big Oil & Big Coal are the prime suspects !
